NEW TALKIE STUDIO
At White City.
FIVE FILMS PLANNED.
The directors of Cincsound Productions, Ltd., announced on Saturday that they have decided to re-equip the old White City silent film studio at Rushcutter Bay (the freehold
of which the company purchased last week) as a second talking film studio, quite inde- pendent of Cinesound's present studio at Bondi Junction. The work is now in progress, and the studio will be made thoroughly sound- proof by the latest systems adopted at Elstree and Hollywood.
The directors state that all the materials and plant used in the studio will be manufac- tured in the company's workshops at Bondi, and, with the exception of the actual cameras and microphones, will be wholly Australian.
Although Cinesound's Bondi studio has been doubled In size for the production of "The Squatter's Daughter," it is necessary to have the White City studio to enable two entirely separate companies to work simultaneously. At Bondi the Cinesound news film is produced weekly for circulation in Australia, New Zea- land, and England, and current pictures are regularly despatched to England by air mall. The production of "The Silence of Dean Mait- land" will begin immediately. Mr. Bert Bailey's next production, "Rudds' New Selection," will then be made.
At the new studio at White City the first production will be "Tall Timbers," to be fol- lowed by "The Man They Could Not Hang," and probably a talking film version of "The Term of his Natural Life."
The White City studio will also be available for hiring by outside producers.
