Hire the studio with the ‘green screen’ for a half day including lights for just £170
The studio is 1000 sq ft in size, and is situated in Pudsey, 10 minutes outside of Leeds city centre. We are a hire studio that works with professionals shooting with our green/blue screen, black background and the all white infinity cove.
There is 3m x 3m roller shutter door for a drive in capability, a model changing room, toilet and kitchen in the studio. Next to the studio is an cabin/office where people can hire for editing, and as another area to do make up/changing if needed. We have for hire also, a ‘green room’ (orangery) to customers which has its own entrance at the side of the house facing onto the garden. People are welcome to sit in the garden weather permitting. The green room has seating, patio doors, and a computer to watch TV or listen to music.
Big Brown Doors Studio is situated next door to the owners house (Adrian) at the end of a cul-de-sac, with parking available for 5/6 cars and then on street parking. The studio is a a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Pudsey, where you can find all the shops you need. We also have the Owlcotes shopping centre 3 minutes away in a car, for Asda and Marks & Spencer shopping if needed. The studio has 24 ceiling mounted daylight balanced video lights with several of the lights on pantographs and sliders for changing positions and each of the light zones (talent front, overhead 1 & 2, side spots and rear spots), turned off/on with a remote control. As well as the video lights there are 5 flash heads ceiling mounted in position to fully light the infinity cove (white zone).
You have 3 Elinchrom flash heads for lighting the rear wall, and three Elinchrom flash heads to light overhead and the talent/front area. And finally there is another Elinchrom flash head ceiling mounted and on a pantograph for side/fill in lighting to suit the creative shooting. The flash heads are in 3 zones for the photographer and each zone has a high powered Elinchrom power pack for the lighting. Each zone is independent of the other so power settings can be adjusted/turned off to suit the creative once again. Transmitters/receivers are all supplied for shooting. There are a number of reflectors stands available FOC, as well as lights available for hire, and can be seen on the website:
The studio is perfect for fitness/fashion imagery because of the 6m wide (3m depth) white zone and has been used many times by companies looking for the extremely clean white background effect using the infinity cove and is only possible because of our experience of lighting in the industry for over 30 years, and wanting that same effect. If you need any further information then please feel free to call and we will be glad to help. And because of the exceptional lighting system we have created it is also fantastic for shooting for chroma key. Such as green screen and blue screen. If clients have a particular colour background they need and it can be achieved with colorama, then it can be sent directly to us and we will have the wall/floor covered as per requirement and ready for the day/days of the shoot. We can do this by running the roll of colorama horizontally across the studio wall and floor. Alternatively we have covered the wall/floor with fabric. In extreme cases we can paint the infinity cove the colour of your choice, but this does entail an additional days hire cost and paint, to repaint the studio back to white. But we will always try to do what works best for our clients and their project, and will advise accordingly.
FYI for you to digest – A ‘Cyc’ is an abbreviated term for cyclorama, also referred to as a cyclorama wall or cyc wall. You can define a cyclorama as “a curved wall used as a background of a stage set to suggest unlimited space.”
To check the costs of hiring the studio click here. For green screen shooting, and for daylight shooting in the white zone (especially great for video), we have set up 24x fluorescent/LED, daylight balanced lights, for shooting video cleanly and professionally.
Let us know what you need or what the project is and we will advise accordingly.
Of course there are other things to consider, like…do you need more lights, do you want a tripod, or would you require an assistant, or colorama that we would have ready for you on site, bought from out local Leeds supplier The Flash Centre
