(Burbank, CA): Television and feature film production has been defecting from their traditional roots in California to other states in order to take advantage of attractive tax credits and other incentives. This has caused a slowdown in all levels of businesses associated with production; from camera operators to caterers.
Producer and studio owner, Bob Bekian, has just finished an extensive re-modeling of his Loyal Studios location in Burbank, incorporating the latest technical tools into his facility in order to provide a reduced cost to producers. “We are a leader in Green Screen technology, and have installed one of the most advanced 360 degree lighting systems in our industry,” Bekian says. This allows for very quick set-ups in our studio, saving an average of 20% on preparation time, which leads to more shots completed during the day.
Another important feature the studio has developed is a fully-integrated control room with the studio. This allows for editors and file managers to work in tandem with the camera operators to assemble and edit footage immediately during a day in the studio, allowing for immediate revisions and notes. “We have incorporated the latest HD storage and file management technology into our facilities so that producers can reduce costs and keep production value high.” The strategy is paying off with several of the big studios turning to Loyal Studios to augment their production slates, recently Pacific Rim, Movie 43, and Prometheus have all shot sequences at Loyal Studios.
