Gary Sloan has been shooting for over 30 years and shoots in and out of a space we lovingly labeled the XL.
The XL is a huge space with 25 foot ceilings and 15,000, yes, 15 thousand square feet of space. " We now have the space to fulfill all our dreams and to create those of our clients. Over the past year, we have created a variety of different solutions for our clients, including a 2 story house facade, a high rise 2 level loft, multiple bedrooms, bathrooms , outdoor patios with flaming BBQ, and many many kitchen sets.
The XL has a lot to offer, a full food styling kitchen designed by one of the countries top food stylist, a full makeup and styling area, a large product prep area, a green screen sound room, a 5ft x7ft glass box for shooting the under world, a full workshop for building any set imaginable and a comfortable client lounge with wifi and mirrored monitors to view the action on set.
As a team, we have the ability to design and build pretty much what ever you can dream up, and if we can't do it all in house, we have a long list of support people to make just about anything come to life.
As always, we are still not tied to the studio, we can bring that same quality and creative problem solving to any location: local, continental or international."
