Come On Over to NGY myplace...
...hey you! If you're a young person aged 13 - 19 living in Nottingham there's an impressive suite of production studios waiting for you, fully kitted out with a host of equipment supplied by HHB Communications Ltd, including a 24-channel Audient ASP8024 console as the centrepiece of the studio. Opened as part of a collaborative project run by Nottingham City Council, NGY myplace facility includes a music production studio, two radio studios, TV production, performance space and a digital-media classroom.
Located on Castle Gate, the project involved the conversion of the basement of the city centre Grade II listed building into a set of professional specified production rooms, with design and contraction of the facility carried out by The Studio People. NGY myplace is one of four youth facilities across the East Midlands which received a share of the £20m funding as part of the national myplace Programme.
“The Castle Gate basement has been transformed into an outstanding, state of the art digital-media production facility,” states Darren Goodlad of Nottinghamshire YMCA, NGY’s digital media partner. “We’ve managed to maximise the usage of the limited amount of space and install a set of industry standard equipment. Each studio can be used independently but we also have extensive patching which will allow us to use the rooms together.”
HHB Educational Sales Manager Andrew Hingley commented: “We are very pleased to be part of such an inspiring project that is designed at giving young people in Nottingham free access to equipment that they would not otherwise get to use. The Studio People did a great job designing studios and specifying equipment that will provide a professional experience and results.”
