Standby has had yet another amazing year. In the last 6 months alone the team’s expanded by over 40% (Felix, Cath and Tom) and, with that growth set to continue, this seems like a perfect time to reveal our big news..
Welcome to our new Production Suite!
This brand new creative space allows for our filmmakers to create quality films, discuss new ideas and generally be a bit pretentious together. All while the production team do actual work in the classic Standby office.
Our new office isn’t too far away, in fact just at opposite ends of the same corridor (the current fastest time between each space is 15 seconds) so we’ll still be in close proximity to each other. Only now with the added risk of sparking bitter turf wars between each faction!
We’re really excited and proud of this news, particularly as we enter our ninth year as a business. It’s a real testament to the ongoing success of Standby and to the amazing work the team have produced year-on-year. Here’s what our MD, Simon Owen had to say.
“Due to a number of new client wins, we’ve grown the team, so the next step was to expand our offices. The new space means that all our Production team will be able to have room for further growth and some much needed peace and quiet to work on our client’s films. This is an amazing step following our recent growth and the new bare brick space reflects Manchester’s industrious past with the most industrious part of our business; stitching our films together!”
The real question now is, which team will win at archery later this week? Stay tuned to find out more…
P.S. If you’re in the neighbourhood don’t forget to drop in to see the new office. Jack spent 4 hours building tables and chairs and he desperately wants to show them off!
