THE STUDIOS

SPREAD YOUR WINGS

Fly Direct To:

SPACE TO DISTANCE PHYSICALLY.

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

Studio 1

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.
