THE STUDIOS

SPREAD YOUR WINGS

SPACE TO CALL YOUR OWN

AstroLab is a multi-studio, single production facility. While we offer two separate shooting spaces and plenty of extra support space outside of the studios, our spaces 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, change room). If you require more space you can add Studio 2 with its relevant support rooms: otherwise it will just sit empty.

Either way, this is your home while you’re with us. Take your shoes off and get comfy!

STUDIO SPECS
