Sealight Film Co.

Sealight was formed from Francis Leonard Lyndhurst taking control of Sunny South Film Co. in 1915. Sunny South filmed in the open air around Shoreham By Sea and Shoreham Fort. Lyndhurst wanted to move to more progressive films so he built a huge glass greenhouse and turned it into a film studio called Shoreham Studios.

The studio measured 45x75 and had 30 foot of headroom to take advantage of the tremendous weather there. Unfortunately, the outbreak of World War I curtailed any progress in the studio.

In 1916, Lyndhurst sold Shoreham to the Olympic Kine Trading Company, again because of the war, nothing was produced at the studio until it was purchased in 1918 by Sidney Morgan with The Progress Film Company.
