I recently shot a music video for the band For The Girl at Elle Je Studio. The studio is perfect for filming in, with it being one of the only full 180 degree infinity studios in the area meaning that camera angles and performance space was not an issue.
Lesley was an absolute pleasure to work with, she made sure we had everything we needed and was extremely relaxed and open for all of the ideas we wanted to try out whilst filming in the studio. The facilities were top notch, we were kept warm, comfortable and secure during our time there and the entire cast, crew and clients felt welcomed and at home from the moment they stepped inside. I will definitely be using the studio again for future video shoots and cannot recommend Lesley, her team and the facilities highly enough. For any other directors or producers out there, this space is absolutely perfect and is an ideal blank canvas for you to create your vision with, the band couldn’t be happier with how the video turned out!
“I had a project on behalf of BBC3 trying to raise money for Children In Need. I decided to take professional photographs of families and individuals at affordable prices in a professional and suitable studio space. I was searching for a location in Nottingham as I had a few appointments booked however I did not have a studio booked. Having called various studios in Nottingham it was clear to say the choice was not amazing. I stumbled across ‘Elle Je Studios’ and I thought if the studio looks anything like what it does on the website then this venue would be amazing. I called Lesley the owner of ‘Elle Je Studios’ and she kindly talked me through what was available. I decided to book the venue, as it seemed too good to be true. I cannot express how delighted I actually was when I arrived and left on that day. Lesley was a fantastic person and really bent over backwards to help us out on the day. The facilities were incredible. It had its own coffee area and break out room, the studio space was spectacular and the editing suites added an extra special touch. For what was on offer and the facilities available and the price Lesley charges I would strongly recommend anyone looking to hire studio space in Nottingham to look no further. I will definitely be making return visits back from London to Elle Je Studios and would strongly recommend it to all of my friends and family in the near future. ”
Thanks To Lesley for being a great host and what a brilliant day we had.
Claire and I made the decision to commission a picture from Jane having seen her work at the Nash exhibition. Jane’s art will enhance any physique, she captures the human form with light and shadow creating an erotic, yet tasteful image.
Jane creates her images from photographs taken by Lesley at her studio. This may seem daunting, the thought of being in front of a lens is often too much for some, standing in your boxers may seem terrifying. Let me put your mind at rest, if you have any concerns, Lesley and Jane make the experience so relaxed, and make you feel very comfortable in the professional surroundings. The atmosphere created is warm, welcoming and you do feel very special.
If you wish to capture an image of yourself, in two contrasting media forms, this is a fantastic opportunity that I would highly recommend. The finished results are fantastic.
“I recently shot a promotional video for a high end product at Lesley’s studio. It was the first time I’d shot there, and I could not be happier with the facilities on offer. The studio is very spacious and modern – and you also have access to make up/changing room, kitchen, meeting room as well as a chill out area (useful for between setups). Lesley and her colleague’s make you feel incredibly welcome and will go the extra mile to ensure you have everything you need. I couldn’t recommend highly enough and will no doubt utilise the facilities again.”
