Begbies Traynor. which has been appointed administrator of the film studio, said it is hopeful that creditors will be paid in full.

"Twickenham Studios has debts at the moment that it can't pay, but when we sell the property, everyone will get paid in full," said Gerald Krasner, one of the joint administrators of the film studio

Half of the 17 employees have also left the business, with the remaining employees to work their notice.

Films that have either been filmed or worked on in post-production at Twickenham include; Roman Polanski's Repulsion; Alfie - with Michael Cane; Oscar nominated best picture War Horse; and Oscar nominated - and The Iron Lady.
