WELCOME TO

FIREBUG STUDIOS

Whether you’re a professional filmmaker or an amateur photographer, our two film and photography studios on the outskirts of Cardiff provide  you with space to create. Both studios are spacious and air-conditioned with separate kitchen, changing room and make-up areas. You’ll have a great time in a relaxed environment.

Our studios are run by lighting specialists, so we include a range of great lighting.  We also hire camera and sound equipment.  And if you need a helping hand we’re happy to give you professional advice or provide you with crew who’ll make sure you get the best results.

Check out our two studios and  drop us a line or give us a call.

We visited the weekend just gone and we made the best decision to film at Firebug. We ended up filming for a music video and I just say .. There are many studios I’ve visited in the last few years, but this one by far is one that stands out more than anything! – The staff are not only professional but extremely friendly, very helpful and kind. – We can’t wait to be back very soon, the equipment they have & the things you can do in there especially if you’re a creative person with great imagination is endless at Firebug.

Absolutely brilliant owners, high quality studio, extensive lighting options and they the owners have so much gear on hand to offer, as well as support. The space is the prefect size to accommodate a small crew with places to relax, a dressing room and coffee facilities.
Will most definitely be back and haven’t stopped talking about how good this place is to others since being there.

We’ve used the studio twice so far and having never used one before it has been such a nice experience. Very helpful and friendly… excellent facilities and really good value for money! Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful experience

We had a wonderful experience shooting a music video at Firebug Studios (Johanna Warren’s ‘Twisted’). Mark & Jane were so enthusiastic from the start, encouraging and supportive of our project, making sure we had everything we needed and more – helping us to bring together a crew for the shoot at short notice, and going above and beyond to help us build a set. We’d recommend the studio to anyone looking to shoot a music video, promotion or short film.. it’s excellently equipped and run with a real passion for creating great work – as well as the valuable expertise of a world class lighting engineer. Hope to work there again in the near future!
