The Northwest Studio is a creative space designed and equipped to enable content creation. Whether you wish to rent and use the equipment yourselves or would like our creative team to help produce media for your needs, we are here to help.
We have two spaces, a 40ft x 20ft Studio Classroom, and a smaller adjacent Control Room – with video editing equipment using Adobe Premiere (Creative Suite). This room also includes an ad-hoc background for shooting headshots and recording audio podcasts.
The Studio Classroom is a multi-functional content creation room that provides not only a comfortable space to sit but is also equipped with fixed cameras and monitors for streaming and recording classes.
The Studio Classroom can then be transformed to shoot video for something completely different as our additional equipment allows us to move lighting, add sound, add a 13ft green screen, and change backgrounds to suit your needs.
As well as the technical provision and support listed our team is more than comfortable to offer professional promotional, advertising and documentary video production, all in-house. Both Andy and Leesoo are experienced professionals and can help guide you through the process from “script to screen”.
Please come and visit us to see what is possible.
Our classroom serves as a recording studio and as a live classroom. The 40' x 20' classroom comes installed with two 70" front display screens and one 42" rear display screen for online participants, making it ideal for webinar hosting.
Rental can also include the use of a PTZ camera system, two channels of wireless audio, a four channel video switcher with HD recording capability, an echo cancelling soundbar and microphone system, lighting, and lighting control.
The room can accommodate classroom or boardroom style seating for 20 and row seating for 30. There is a casual corner with four arm chairs and a coffee table, and a second casual corner with two loveseats and a coffee table.
Our 22' x 12' boardroom comes equipped with a 60" screen, 84" whiteboard, built-in microphone, and speakers.
