Further to my previous comments, it could be tied in with apprenticeship schemes so young people have practical experience in this type of environment which part funds this facility alongside museum entrance fees and lottery or other funding. It would keep in going and not lost.
However, excellent idea about Fulwell73. It would be a fantastic building for this purpose.
I had the pleasure of viewing a derelict power station in Paris before it was converted for similar purposes by Luc Besson.
Since 2012, Grand Paris has its own film studios, the Cité du Cinéma, to compete with those in Hollywood and Cinnecita.www.parisdigest.com
This completely changed the building and surrounding area.
would support city centre redevelopment, hotels, film supply chain and some of the shipping heritage might be useful to support films? They could possibly use the river for filming or even the dry dock?
suspect the cost of redevelopment would be significant however to sound proof, re-clad, remove any asbestos (?) and just clean.
by the way what a project the one in Paris must have been, it looks amazing.
