Never share with anyone! AstroLab is a multi-studio, single production facility. While we offer two separate Studios and plenty of extra support space outside of the studios, our facility can only be reserved by one production at a time. This means you and your team will always be the ONLY production in the space while you’re with us!
Every production starts with a booking of Studio 1 (the larger of the two) and its support rooms (HMU, green room, kitchen & lounge, change room). If you require more space you can add rooms as needed to suit your production!
You get to choose the spaces, gear and add-ons that are most suitable to the needs of your production and budget. Follow this simple process to create the package that’s just right for you!
All bookings start with the Studio Base Package. This includes Studio 1, a large kitchen and lounge, huge hair and makeup room, comfy green room and dedicated change room. Tables and chairs, distro, rolling racks, steamers and more. Click the buttons below to see the rates, and everything that is included!
Want more space? Add only the rooms you need! Choose from: a dedicated change room, small production office, second kitchen/lounge space, and even a second studio!
We have a massive inventory of in-house equipment, designed to cover most production’s needs. You can choose from an all-inclusive package for Stills or Motion, or create your own list a-la-carte!
Once you’ve got your space and gear, you won’t be surprised with any other fees at AstroLab, but there are a few potential add-ons to consider!
“The Stars Don’t Look Bigger, But They Do Look Brighter”
The Base Package is anything but base-ic. You’ll find tons of value for your production beyond the usual empty studio space. From additional Support Rooms outside of the studios, to Location EQ, you get a lot more when you book with AstroLab! Here is a full list of what you will have included with your booking:
Get all the details on the studio spaces!
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.
Studio 2 (add-on only) is a tad smaller than Studio 1, but just as mighty – with the same exceptional sound and production value. It is unique as it has a U-shaped cyc wall.
The studio is equipped with a LAN connection for fast, dependable live-streaming. There is a secret passageway (read: emergency exit) that leads directly between Studios 1 & 2 for easy human transport from studio to studio.
