Now we have 3 studios between us but we always have had one that was our secret headquarters where we tended to meet and write. However I recently moved house and at the moment the SUBs are kind of homeless with no where to work. We still are mixing and finishing in another studio but SUB HQ is being desperately missed. I thought I would start doing a blog about what we are doing to build a new studio.
In my new house we have room to build a studio at the back of the garden. After working in lots of studios we now prefer to work near home. We have enough space to build a studio 7m x 4m there which should be big enough!
This is the space at the moment:
The spec for the basics....
We have set down with a friend of ours who is a builder and started to cost and spec the space. We plan to have one end for music and the other end for filming. We really want to do alot more filming work so though this would be a good opportunity to set up a dedicated space for us. You can see it is broken down by 8 stages. probably gonna cost somewhere in the region of £22k
However this is just the basics we will probably once the shell is built look into the accoustics of the space and then build in accoustic treatment so make the sound of the room sound good for recording and monitoring. The other thing we will do is look at lighting rigs on the ceiling for the filming as well as having a dedicated animation space. We really will need to control the light!
We are just working out some other equipment we will buy as well, might as well have some new shiny stuff to go in it! We will be posting about this too over the next few months as well as trying to do a few time lapse videos. This is very exciting times for us!
Big up the music
