Sometimes it’s all about location. There are a number of stages peppered throughout the Bay Area. In the East Bay we have big stages, insert stages, studios with control rooms and now we have a medium sized stage right in Emeryville. The recently renovated, and now open to the public stage, at Athena Studios is a great new asset folks should know about. Conveniently located off of highway 80 in Emeryville, it is close to Pixar, Tippet Studios, the Ex’pression College for Digital Arts, and DTC.
The stage is 40 x 48 with a 25’ x 25’ two wall green screen cyclorama and a load out door. Its available for daily or long term rental. There is a 3 station make up room and a meeting room with video Skype. Athena has close relations with both DTC and Chater Camera so they can help outfit you with all your lighting and camera needs. They also feature a sound deadened record booth, and have attached secured parking.
Jon Peters and the team at Athena have been producing video and multimedia projects for over 20 years. They are pioneers in online education and development. They have created many award winning interactive programs, and thousands of online videos. When this new space became available they saw it as a natural extension of the their business model. This is a great medium sized stage that offers flexibility for a wide variety of projects and we are thrilled that Athena is making it available to the local community
Thanks to their long track record in the production side of the business Athena speaks your language. So whether you are looking for a great space to mount your next project or you need the expertise of their full service production background, be sure to get a hold of these guys and let them know what you need; chances are good they will be able to help. We are glad we found out about this space and are happy to include it as part of our PHS family. We say check them out.
