Ten Stories Studio
At Ten Stories, we produce a wide variety of work in our own versatile studio space. This makes it easier for us to create, build and implement ideas for a production.
Having our own space to film minimizes production time and helps our clients stick to their bottom line. Studio shoots eliminate the need to excessively travel, scout for locations or deal with permit offices. Like a chameleon, we can change the space to accommodate the creative ideas of the client. Nothing beats having control of the environment when efficient, quality work needs to be produced.
This control over cameras, lighting and atmosphere can make a production notably more successful. The time it takes a crew to set up and wrap is reduced and, in certain instances, actual production days can be dedicated entirely to filming by having prep/wrap days before and after the production. Plus, having the ability to leave equipment for a multi-day shoot is ideal since there is no need for crew worry about daily packing and unpacking. Another bonus is the lack of restriction on operational hours. Most off site locations will have fixed rate of time you are able to film there, but Ten Stories can operate any time of the day or night. We’ve had our fair share of early mornings and late nights.
Using the stages at Ten Stories, we’ve made reality what were once ideas. We’re used to having this asset, but still get excited when visualizing the space. Because we aren’t at the mercy of another location and it’s restrictions, the possibilities are endless.
The TS stage can be customized at will to look like a store, an apartment, a command center, or can be simply used for its minimal studio appearance. Not to mention, half of our stage is green, providing the perfect solution for composite work and visual effects. With a few lighting and camera techniques shot on the composite stage, we can put a subject in Iceland, on the beaches of Fiji or even shrunk to the size of an insect. Part of our studio space includes a modern, fully functional Kitchen. This has proven ideal for scenes that require a kitchen setting such as cooking programs or tech demos. A large garage opens into the studio space and we’ve had a blast filming vehicle interiors, exteriors and projection-mapped driving scenes.
Distributed Lethality was produced in partnership with the United States Navy. We created the command center of a naval ship in-studio. We accomplished this by renting props from a Hollywood prop house and, with our utility van, picked up desks, doorways and switchboards from a ship in order to solidify an accurate look.
For this food resource segment, we took advantage of the kitchen space. We brought in a professional food decorator who prepped the food and we filmed the scene with multiple cameras.
In this video to promote the wireless technology carrier aggregation, we put the subject in front of the green screen with multiple locations in the background. In one scene she’s on a dock in Bora Bora and in the next she’s standing on a mountain slope with snow falling on her head.
Working at the TS studio helps our clients create freely and work efficiently! Let’s shoot something.
