Wayne Madden, NES Studio Manager and Press Officer said: “Really excited for this event. As a filmmaker, to see a person come to life creating their projects is beautiful so I am really looking forward to meeting as many people as possible on our Open Day. So much talent out there needing an opportunity like this to help push them further.”

Visitors at the open day will be treated to a guided tour, be able to see everything that the space has to offer, as well as the screening of local filmmakers work and a selection of showreels from NES in its Cinema sized screening area, Studio A.

NES Director Wayne Thompson, who has close to 25 years’ experience and has worked alongside International Artists such as Little Caesar and the Tyger’s of Pan Tang, will also be on hand to meet guests personally.

A Sunderland native, Mr Thompson founded NES because of his passion for filmmaking, and the need to share that passion with as many people in his hometown as possible, inspiring them in the process.

The New Enterprise Studios open day will be held on October 2 from 10am until late at their Sunderland studio at North Hylton Enterprise Estate.
