Some things you just have to see for yourself to really get them, sometimes pictures dont tell the whole story. The Goal Line Stage is one of those things. The buildings exterior is not all that distinctive and doesnt give a hint as to what lies inside, but if you get the chance to check it out and see the stage itself in person, youll see what we mean. The first glance and you go "wow this is REALLY big". There just arent very many large stages in the Bay Area. Its simply a matter of the underlying value of the real estate and the return on investment in builiding and maintaining a large space. Goal Line is a truly valuable asset for our local scene. On occasion you hear a gripe about its East Bay Location, but the fact is, that sometimes it has taken longer to get to the Golden Gate Bridge from the southern part of SF then it takes to get to Pleasanton. So lets continue to support and keep this fantastic space busy. Its here, its relatively near and should be held dear.
Goal Line was created by Joe and John Madden after John came to the realization that he was not satisfied with what the Bay Area had to offer in production facilities, and not wanting to travel to Los Angeles or New York, John decided to build his own studio in his home town of Pleasanton, California. Goal Line features a 7000 square foot sound stage a 60 x 70 x 20 two wall hard cove cyc, plenty of power and lots of parking. Goal Line features all the amenities you would expect in a first class facility like this one; lighting, grip & elecric, woodshop, flats, make-up and warddrobe, and fully equipped kitchen all under one roof.
Jonathan "Sketch" White is the studio manager, and has dedicated himself to making this an organized and pleasant place to work. Its only about 30 minutes from San Francisco, and we highly recommend that you make the time to make an appointment and go take a look around. We like Goal Line, youll like Goal Line.
