The Studios PDF Print E-mail

In 1999 Simon Webster began planning the conversion of a farm workshop into a professional studio from which to produce animated films, video productions and photography. Hopewell Studios was completed in 2001 with much help from his brothers Henry and Edward Webster. The studio logo and type that you see on the banner of this site were designed by Simon.

The photography studio is regularly utilised by Edward for his freelance work, while Simon and Richard make use of the film facilities and editing suite under their partnership of Webster/Sargent Productions. 

If you are interested in commissioning film, animation or photography work from Hopewell Studios please contact us for more information.
Exterior Hopewell The Studio provides a place for sound work, camera set-ups and in-house editing and post production, right through to marketing and website work. Situated in quiet rural surroundings away from interruptions, it's the ideal place to get work done.

Hopewell Studios provides a calm, relaxing environment for our clients. When the facility was designed, full access and facilities for people with disabilities was a key consideration.
