About Us

Floating Harbour Studios Ltd is based on a large Dutch barge in Bristol City Centre. We offer media production services under the banner of Floating Harbour Films and have been developing facilities and equipment hire services, in particular since moving to these premises in 2011.


We started hires on the back of having been early adopters of the game-changing Canon 5D and our stock continues to grow and expand in order to be able to provide a more comprehensive service to industry professionals. We have a range of equipment available to us, so even if you are looking for something that is not available on our website, just contact us.


Our offices are on board and we have additional space to accomodate the complimentary activities of other businesses. You can also hire space for short-term activities. We also dry-hire edit facilities.

Our boat is currently undergoing maintenance to create a multi functions space for various events, such as screenings or launch parties. We are very happy to look at creative ways of using the space so contact us if you're interested.


If you are on this site as opposed to our production site, it is unlikely that you are looking for a company to produce your films. If you are, please check us out onFloatingHarbourFilms.co.uk

However, if you are a producer - whether a freelancer or a large company - who is looking for a collaborating partner and we offer a piece of the jigsaw that may be helpful to you, please do get in touch. We work very much in the spirit of collaboration in everything we do.


We may give some discretionary discount:

If you are a regular customer who is doing a piece of speculative work.

If you are working on a Pet Project such as a short (unfunded) film, OR a good cause voluntary project.

Details on request.

We have also hired people equipment before in exchange for work within the company or on our boat. 


We started life as Dramatic Solutions in 2001, offering performance services for events and actors for business learning and development programmes as well as media production services for the Learning and Development sector.

Over time the production wing of the company developed until at the beginning of 2012 we stepped out as an independent company. The name changed from DramaticSolutions.tv to Floating Harbour Studios and Floating Harbour Films in October 2012.
