Studio Cozy has two separate spaces. Our main space is on the ground floor entered by the Unit 6 door, and the second studio, Cozy Too, is on the 2nd floor and entered by the Unit 6a door. Cozy Too is a smaller shooting space but is very popular as it has a staging area and make-up room right next to the shooting space. Both studios have their own kitchen and restroom.
Scroll to the bottom of the page to see floor plans of each floor.
1 - STUDIO COZY - ground floor
Our main studio (only $40/hr) features easy parking lot entry, a high ceiling (12'), a well sound-proofed shooting area (close to 500 square feet), and a large combination green room, make-up room with a kitchen. The back-wall-to-paper distance is 22 feet which means you can easily shoot head-to-toe images of models and still position them 8' or more in front of the background paper.
If you are recording live sound (eg. an on-camera host) this is the studio to use. Music video shoots will almost always book this space, unless only tight shots are needed on one or two people, then upstairs is okay.
2 - COZY TOO - second floor
Our second studio ($30/hr) was set up in 2015 due to high volume of bookings and also to provide a more economical space for small projects. Cozy Too features an extra lounge area that can be used as a waiting room or product staging spot. The back-wall-to-paper distance is a bit short which means that a model would have to stand closer to the BG paper than you might want if you need to shoot head-to-toe - though the result can be quite satisfactory (see sample photo on this page)
Casting sessions work better in Cozy Too because visitors enter the lounge first when they arrive.
Cozy Too is NOT well suited for live sound recording (periodic noises from the parking lot), nor big groups of people on-camera (too small), nor dance projects (unless very contained). Once you do one shoot you will have a sense of what you feel you can do in the space. It's definitely great for product shoots and head shot shoots.
