Mark and his crew was amazing. They were attentive and worked with me on everything that came up that day. I would highly recommend them to other people looking for an amazing studio with very professional owners/staff.
Rachel H. booked a production for 6 people
Everything about our experience, from the first contact with Mark to discuss our needs to the day we were there shooting, was outstanding. The location is great and was easy to find. Mark and Nic, who was with us in the studio as our Studio Manager, were extremely helpful and communicative leading up to our studio date to make sure we would have everything we needed. The studio itself - the green screen, the lighting and sound, and even the additional areas (makeup/dressing room, kitchen) exceeded our needs and expectations. We had a long day and it was comfortable to spend the time there. We almost went with a studio that's more convenient for us (literally across the street from our office in El Segundo), but we're so glad we didn't. Highly, highly recommend!
