XSite Braehead is getting ready to unveil XSite Studio, Scotland’s first ever bespoke social media content creation space, open to the public.

The colourful studio, which comes ready with a selection of eye popping backdrops, is set to launch on Thursday 12th August, just in time for teenagers and those young at heart, to celebrate one last summer holiday weekend with friends. Young people will be able to create fun videos to share on their TikTok, Instagram or other favourite social platform – making memories that will last a lifetime.

For customers looking for some help creating their content, XSite Braehead has partnered with one of Scotland’s top TikTok talents Hayley Aris (@hayleyaris) for the launch of the studio. Hayley, who has amassed over 765,000 likes and a following of almost 50,000 fans on TikTok with her creative dances and accessible choreography, has created three original and easy-to-master routines – one for each photo-worthy backdrop. Hayley will be on hand to demonstrate her dances, help customers land their steps, give tips on editing their videos and assist with any other content-related queries.

Alongside Hayley, professional dancers from leading Scottish studio Ace Tribe Dance Company will be on site to help customers nail their routines. The dancer will be on hand for customers from launch day, ensuring that everyone who visits feels confident and camera-ready.

Equipped with three eye-catching backdrops including: metallic streamers for a party-ready feel, a moving swing-set playfully embellished with doughnuts and a light-up, star-studded wall, XSite Studio has everything a budding young TikToker or Instagram lover needs to create polished, vibrant videos and images. The space is also fitted with ring lights and phone-holders to ensure the perfect shot is captured every time.

Rosalind Gibson, Marketing Manager at XSite Braehead, said: “I’m sure that XSite Studio will prove popular among our younger customers. We’ve installed everything you may need to create an amazing video and we are working with some of Scotland’s most exciting, creative young talent to launch the space. For those who don’t feel like dancing, our three stunning backdrops also double as the perfect selfie backdrop. I’d encourage everyone to come visit us and check out the studio.”

TikTok talent Hayley Aris said, “This is the ultimate space to create amazing, high-quality videos. From bright ring lights with phone holders to the most photogenic settings, Studio XSite is a content-creator’s dream! I can’t wait for the launch, and I’m looking forward to showing customers the unique routines I’ve created for each backdrop.”
