Hollywood Center Studios has upgraded one of its principal stages, Stage 1, through the construction of a permanent, three-wall, hard cove, white cyc. The new cyc is one of the largest of its type in Hollywood and is ideal for complex visual effects shoots requiring large casts, sets or production equipment.
Hollywood Center Studios has also added a new special effects stage, Stage 2a, with a smaller, permanent greenscreen cyc. The lot now has six stages with permanent cycs.
“Our hard cyc stages are very popular shooting spaces due to their size, configurations and quality,” said Hollywood Center Studios vice president Tim Mahoney. “They are especially popular among our commercial clients as they can accommodate car shoots and other large productions. They also include amenities, such as wardrobe, dressing rooms and on-site parking, that productions need.”
The Stage 1 cyc measures 63-feet along the back wall, 38-feet and 49-feet along its two side walls, and 22-feet high. The stage itself encompasses more than 6500 square feet. The new Stage 2A covers more than 3000 square feet and its two-wall, greenscreen cyc measures 33-feet wide, by 35-feet long, by 19-feet high. Both cycs have seamless coves made from poured concrete.
Hollywood Center Studios has also completed construction of a new dressing room complex for television productions.
