Sound Stages:

Essentially, a big blank canvas on which we make movie magic.  The life blood of a studio. The stages are where most of the action takes place.






Fully sound proofed with more than enough electrical power for the demands of lighting department, complete climate control, fork lifts and scissor lifts, etc., our stages will be able to facilitate the most sophisticated of set builds.





Green-screen/cyc walls for composite editing are essential to any studio.






The Departments:


Camera Department:



Now that we have a space to shoot in, next we will need something to shoot with. 


State-of-the-art camera equipment will be purchased.  Such inventory will include the latest RED and Sony cameras and are staples of the film production community. 




Additional “prosumer” cameras from Sony and/or Panasonic will enable us to shoot reality based content known as “on-the-fly” shooting.  More lightweight than their bigger cousins used for motion pictures, these cameras will still have full HD quality.


3D Rigs, Lenses, tripods, dollies, cranes, steadicam harnesses, Apple Laptops for downloading the media, Storage Devices, etc. are ancillary equipment needed.




Grip and Electrical Department (G&E): 



A fully equipped G&E Department is essential.  Without this department, we are literally shooting in the dark. This department is responsible for the placement and the securing of lighting equipment.  The equipment comes in various sizes, shapes and functions.  A well equipped G&E department assures us of the highest quality in our productions.




Production Sound Department:



The quality of the production sound can make or break a film.  It is one of the things that differentiates studio films from low budget independent films. Shooting on a sound stage allows us to control this aspect of production but the quality of the equipment also needs to be of the highest caliber.  Equipment includes recording devices, microphones, boom poles, cables, etc.




Art/Set-Dress/Props Department:



The sound stage is the canvas but it is the art department that is the paint.  Walls, set dressing, props all go into setting the stage for the directors and actors to perform.


A fully equipped carpentry shop will enable us to custom build all the sets we will need for production. Common items found in a shop are a table saw, band saw, chop saw, metal fabrication equipment, hand tools, etc.





Props are, by definition, any item on-set that an actor touches/uses during a performance.  These items can range from something as simple as a pencil all the way up to something like a fancy tri-corder in Star Trek.  Having a versatile props department makes it easier to handle the demands of full blown productions.  The props department will have the capacity to create intricate custom props on-demand.




Wardrobe Department:


The stage has been built, the lights are hung, and the cameras are set.  Now we need the actors to look the part.


Costuming can consist of normal everyday street wear or can be elaborate undertakings or somewhere in between. 







Production Offices:



These offices will also be “the face” of the company.  They are needed for the Producers and general production staff and will be outfitted with desks, chairs, bookshelves, high speed internet, flat screen TVs, copy machine, etc.  A kitchenette should be built into this area.








Hair and Makeup Rooms:


Getting all dolled up is part of the process and we will construct beautiful and functional spaces for this crucial activity.







Editorial Department (Editing):



Once a project is shot, it is now time to piece it all together adding in foley and if needed, special effects.


Editing bays will be created utilizing the latest in computer equipment and software.  We will be able to edit in the two most popular programs, AVID and Final Cut.  We will also utilize other software such as Mya and After Effects for computer generated content.




Sound Recording Studio:

We will also be including the ability to record and produce music.  This can be for movie soundtracks or used to produce an album for an individual artist.

PHYSICAL PLANT STUDIOS

Our proposal is indicative of our expectations for the future.  We appreciate the need to start out on a smaller scale so any assistance, no matter how small, will have a positive impact on our endeavor.
