Overlooking the Yarra River and a 5 minute drive from Melbourne CBD, it is known as one of the best located studio complexes in the Southern hemisphere. With state of the art technology and industry standard features, including fully sound-proofed stages, air-conditioning, extraction fans, fixed steel grids, catwalks and ample three phase electrical power.
Hosting all types of production in its short history, from international feature films to domestic television series such as Australia’s Got Talent (Seven Network) or Where the Wild Things Are (Warner Brothers), a film version of the dense lyricism and dark imagination of Maurice Sendak’s legendary picture book Where the Wild Things Are.
