From creating global bestselling video game series Sniper Elite and Zombie Army, to publishing the world-renowned comic book 2000AD, and partnering with film and game industry pioneers to develop virtual production, Rebellion is at the forefront of Britain’s creative industries.

Rebellion Film Studios set up its first studio in November 2018, renovating an old printing works, to produce film and tv series based on its 2000AD characters. Since 2003, Rebellion has also owned Audiomotion, a multi-stage studio specialising in the provision of motion capture services to the Game Development, Film and Television industries. 

Earlier this year, the company also bought Newspaper House in Osney Mead, previously home to the Oxford Mail, which has moved to new premises on the same industrial estate.

The company now boasts six variable stages across 50,000 square feet of shooting space, a further 10,000 square feet of workshop space, and 12,000 square feet of production offices.
