Picture Shop, Streamland Media’s picture division, has expanded and extensively renovated its Sunset and Seward picture post production facilities, both located in the heart of Hollywood. The innovative transformations further underscore Picture Shop’s commitment to provide filmmakers globally with first-in-class technology and unmatched talent.
“We’ve invested millions of dollars to ensure that we have world-leading technology and optimum environments in place for colour grading, editorial, and workflow management, with the goal of serving our clients at the highest level,” says Picture Shop president Cara Sheppard. “We’ve spent our time focusing on their needs, putting the industry’s most advanced tools in their hands, all in a beautiful and stylish environment that fuels creativity. The team has done an incredible job and I look forward to seeing our clients’ work take flight.”
Picture Shop’s facility at 6040 Sunset Boulevard sits in 115,000 square feet located over six floors at the Sunset Gower Studio lot. With five colour bays and 11 edit rooms included in the expansion, the Sunset facility now offers filmmakers five first-class D.I. theatres, 13 colour bays, 22 online edit rooms and 55 offline rental rooms in a purpose-built, contemporary setting. Architect Bruce Bolander brought his extensive experience in design for the post production industry to the assignment. The common spaces and meeting rooms were also modified to make for a reinvented client experience.
Ghost VFX, Streamland Media’s visual effects division, and Picture Head, Streamland Media’s marketing division, are co-located at the Sunset complex, which enables powerful collaboration. The divisions are all securely connected to locations around the world with access to the company’s exceptional global talent pool. Production, operations and support teams will be based at the facility, offering 24/7 client assistance. The building is also Streamland Media’s global headquarters.
Nearby, Picture Shop’s facility located at 861 Seward has also been newly renovated. Long recognised as an A-list colour grading environment in a smaller, boutique setting, the locations feature two state-of-the art grading theatres with a third theatre opening this spring. All have direct high-speed connectivity to the main Picture Shop facility at Sunset, as well as Picture Shop’s facility in Burbank. Production, operations, and support teams at the facilities will be able to offer 24/7 client assistance.
Picture Shop’s recent credits include Oscar-nominees The Fablemans, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, Women Talking and the upcoming The Little Mermaid.
In addition to its Los Angeles facilities, Picture Shop locations include New York, Toronto and Vancouver with international locations in the UK that include London, Manchester, Bristol, Wales and at Pinewood Studios.
