STUDIO 1

MISSION CONTROL

PLEASE NOTE: COVID-19 IMPACTS HOW YOU CAN BOOK

To ensure you have full control over head count while you’re with us, we are now only allowing one production in the space at a time. This means you must start by booking Studio 1, and then can add Studio 2 if needed. If you do not need the extra space, it will remain empty while you are with us. 

Studio 1 has a max capacity of 20 people, and our entire facility is max 30. 

A PROFESSIONAL SOUNDSTAGE.

Studio 1 is a large and comfortable white cyc infinity wall stage: soundproofed and acoustically treated for superior audio capture. A true stage on a real film lot. If audio is important for your production, or you demand comfort, look no further.

The studio is equipped with a LAN connection for fast, dependable live-streaming.
