Later this week Mofilm will be opening a brand new production studio and event space in Los Angeles. The company plans to host parties and screenings and other special events in the space and Mo-filmmakers will have access to the studio’s production facilitates. The studio is an amazing idea and I think Mofilm’s members will be lining up to shoot there. Anyone familiar with the Mofilm model knows that they give out hundreds of production grants every year. These grants are incredibly helpful but after you pay a cast and crew and rent gear and budget for costumes and props and lunch there’s usually not much money left over for a location rental. But thanks to this new studio, Mofilm’s west coast members will have have a big, beautiful professional studio at their disposal. Filmmakers can even use the location to hold production meetings or casting sessions. Here’s some more info from Mofilm:
The MOFILM LA Studio has been specifically created to provide our community with free production, casting, screening, learning and event facilities. So if you are looking for an easy-going creative space to work from and execute your projects then look no further!
Facilities include High speed wifi, private casting and meeting space, open café and soft seating area, fully stocked kitchen/bar, production studio, Bluescreen facilities, free valet parking, access to the MOLA crew, and a state-of-the-art movie theater space for screenings.
The studio’s grand opening is happening in Thursday night. If you’re a Mofilm member and you want to go, you MAY be able to get an invite to the party. The first step would be to join the studio’s facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MOFILMLA. Once you’re approved you’ll see more info about the grand opening. But if you’re like me and you can’t make it to the party, these photos will give you a nice sneak peek inside the space:
