It was good news for the Irish film industry last week following the announcement that Limerick's Troy Studios will increase its studio facilities with the addition of a fourth sound stage.
When complete it will position Troy as the largest international standard film and TV studio in Ireland with the potential to double Troy Studio’s level of inward production and jobs, providing a significant spin off for filmmakers, artists and construction crews based in Tipperary.
To date Troy Studios is currently home to a 350,000 sq. ft. hub for content creation. The studio recently wrapped filming the first series of Nightflyers for streaming giant Netflix.
A new fourth sound stage will add another 33,000 sq. ft of international standard sound stage space as well as additional workshop space.
Speaking following the announcement, Chairman of Troy Studios, Joe Devine said: “Since its opening in 2017, Troy Studios has positioned itself as a world-class production hub for large-scale film and television productions. Troy’s new investment plan to increase studio capacity will be a further driver to grow Ireland’s €1.1 billion audio-visual industry, to create more employment and take best advantage of the global increase in the demand for content. Ultimately it will enable multiple productions to use Troy concurrently.”
