SOAR Works Tenant Profile: Flycheese Studios

Lights, camera, action!

SOAR Works tenant Flycheese Studio has an ever-increasing reputation for creating imaginative, fun and professional films and photography solutions.

A social enterprise, they train people to become digital artists and specialise in working with people who need support to live their lives, whether autistic or physically disabled.

They run workshops and courses in stopmotion animation, game design, 3D modelling, film making, photography and much more.

But they also take on professional stopmotion animation commissions, and have worked with the National Autistic Society and Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity to name just a few.

Paul Brown, Flycheese Managing Director and founder, said: “Our ethos is to empower people with technical and social skills, giving students the confidence to gain work in digital art or other areas.”

As well as their base at SOAR Works, Flycheese also have a studio on John Street in the city centre, and both studios are equipped with industry-standard software on both Macs and PCs.

But Flycheese also work in schools, holding workshops and staff training events to allow students and staff to learn new skills and explore their creativity and team work.

With the use of a professional drone, they are also able to offer 4K aerial filming. Paul is a qualified drone pilot, and they have the permission of the Civil Aviation Authority to work at just about any location required.
