The new state-of-the-art Stylephotos Studios has launched in Mississauga. The facility is a game changer for film and commercial production and other content creation needs.
The studio was created in close collaboration with the leaders in film production industry, including Arri, Mo-Sys, Movie-Tech, Absen, Leitz, and others. Located minutes from Pearson International Airport, the space spans over 12,000 square feet with dedicated areas for e-commerce content creation, a 75 foot by 16 foot curved flawless cyclorama and the most advanced 46 foot by 15 foot LED volume for the most immersive film and commercial shooting experience.
The e-commerce section of the studio is comprised of seven dedicated automated stations, catered to various product types to be depicted in the most efficient and appealing way. With a proprietary software developed by Stylephotos Studios, every client has a streamlined way to order content, monitor the order status, and consistently receive high quality results. With client retention rate of over 90%, Stylephotos Studios’ e-commerce division has proven to be a great success and a great assistance to online retailers, looking to create high volume of high quality content in an efficient and cost effective manner.
The overall studio space looks like something from a futuristic movie. As part of the cyclorama/ LED volume package, clients have an ability to rent and use the latest robotic arm that was sourced from one of the most renowned manufacturers located in the United Kingdom – Mark Roberts Motion Control. The studio currently has BOLT X available to clients, with Bolt Junior on order to be utilized with the LED volume. The robotic arms create outstanding video content for any type of application.
The LED volume itself utilizes the latest technology from Absen, Mo-Sys tracking, and Brompton processing. With this expansive LED volume clients are able to transform the shooting process from on-location to one centralized space. The screen is comprised of 252 LED panels from Absen, with 1.9mm pixel pitch resolution – something that allows for unprecedented quality of the video environment to be created for the scenes. The content is created through Unreal Engine, and is supported by the Brompton processors that create the magical scenes on the LED volume. Coupled with an array of Arri SkyPanels and orbiters above the cyclorama are and LED volume, the process of creating content has never been easier and more realistic.
One of the most important success factors is the abundance of the most advanced lenses (from brands like Leitz, Cooke, Angenieux, Orion, Sigma, and Arri) as well as state of the art camera lineup (Alexa 35, V Raptor XL, Phantom Flex4K, Sony Venice, and others). The studio itself has the most recent technological advancements in production hardware, from tripods to Movie-Tech Magnum dollies brought to Canada from Germany.
The Stylephotos Studios has a dedicated area for food content creation, with a full set dedicated to cooking shows and food product commercials. Having the right tools and appliances readily available makes this studio ideal for shooting food related content, and with the assistance of Arri lights every shot will be simply perfect. Another bonus is that users do not have to rent the whole space at once – every section is modular and can be used at the same time individually by different clients. The studio also provides an area for models to change and get makeup done, a lunch room for staff and clients to have a break, a dedicated client area, and a shower (which could be used for shooting or for a conventional shower purpose).
Fully equipped, the studio is ready to open its doors to new clients and companies looking to create professional content while utilizing the best equipment, technology, space, and location.
