THE STUDIOS

SOUNDPROOFED CYC STUDIOS

SPACE TO CALL YOUR OWN

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 booking starts with the Base Package, which includes Studio 1, a large HMU room, green room, kitchen & lounge, & change room (plus all your power, location supplies, and more!). If you require more space you can add rooms as needed to suit your production!

Welcome to Your Home Away from Home.

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

Studio 2

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.
