Tom Purton, head of the Commercial Department at Travers Smith, led a team advising Pinewood Shepperton plc on a 50/50 joint venture with Studio Hamburg GmbH, to market their existing studio facilities in Hamburg and Berlin. The combined facilities comprise 10 stages in Berlin and 11 stages in Hamburg ranging from 6,000 sq ft to just over 26,000 sq ft and production accommodation and workshops.

The new joint venture, to be named "Pinewood Studio Berlin Film Services", will provide a full range of production services for inward investment films and Studio Hamburg GmbH will facilitate access to the German Federal Film Fund. The venture will target the Italian, French, wider European and international film markets which account for a significant proportion of inward investment films in Germany.
