It's where quality of life meets the enchantment of economical production costs, all wrapped up in the warm embrace of Midwest hospitality.
Explore three stages, totalling over 23,000 sqft, rocking three-phase power, full heating & air, and the iconic red-light and bell combo. Enjoy the luxury of free crew parking right by the stages and mark your calendars for late 2024 as we add an addition 24,000 sqft of stages and more support space.
Envision a local dive Bar, an old-school Police Station (with detectives' bullpens, captains' offices, interrogation rooms, and a jail cell), a bustling Hospital, a cozy Apartment, and a nostalgic High School (complete with reception, locker-filled corridors, and classrooms) all in one easy to shoot location.
From spacious 3,000 sqft production suites to cozy 2-person rooms, we've got you covered with a whopping 1Gb of internet both up and down. Need to print scripts or photocopy? We've got you covered there too! And for those marathon nights, our famous Filmmakers Ranch coffee is here to keep the creative juices flowing.
