ANNOUNCEMENT APRIL 2018
To all our wonderful clients, suppliers and supporters. After much consideration, we have decided to close the doors of Propeller Studios effective 30 June 2018.
Propeller has been an adventurous endeavour since we set up shop here in the picturesque Shelly Bay. We are very proud of what we have achieved over the past four years and we have been honoured to service the film, events and arts industries and the wider Wellington community.
There are a number of factors for our closure, chief among these was the possibility of losing our amazing Shed 8 home in Shelly Bay. With the development of the Bay area looking likely, it is time for us to move on.
As they say, one door closes... We will continue to offer film production services, camera and equipment rentals, shipping container conversions and other services via our Random Group companies, Random Films and Cuba Creative. And in July, Random Group moves into our new home in Mt Cook. More on that soon!
We are also very happy to announce that as of April 2018, our prop collection and prop rental service has been sold to Themeworks Ltd.
Themeworks is a brand new Kiwi company, with its head office in Wellington. The props will reside in Shelly Bay for the meantime, and over the coming months, Themeworks will be developing their website and providing the props with some tender loving care. During this time, some of the props will be available for you to hire. Feel free to make contact with the Themeworks team for more details.
It was important to us that the prop collection remain as an asset for hire, so we are very excited that Themeworks has stepped into the breach!
And finally, if you are interested in a bargain, keep an eye on our TradeMe page here - we will be listing surplus equipment, furniture, fixtures and fittings and other interesting morsels over the next few weeks.
Thanks again for your support!
The Propeller Studios Team.
