Originator Studios is an 800 sq. ft. sound stage in East Austin. Renovated from an old transmission shop, the building houses office space, the studio, and a 16,000 sq. ft. gated lot. The property zoning is mixed use, and there's minimal residential areas nearby. TUP can be granted for outdoor amplification later than 10pm.
Because we're a sound stage, it's fully soundproofed and sounds great for intimate music performances. We're also fully equipped for VR experiences with 2 room scale HTC Vives.
We started as a video production company 9 years ago, and opened the doors of our home base in 2016. Originator Studios also hosts multiple creative companies: David Heisler Photography, Wise Visuals, Guinn Partners, Fair Worlds and Hybrid VR.
We held an official SXSW party for Festy Besty, a festival clothing line. We had a blast transforming the space into Festy World: our interactive film set. Outside in the parking lot we brought in a classic RV, an aerial rig for aerial performances, cable cams and drones to capture aerial footage, fire dancers, and space for motocross racers. Inside we set up a dj booth, dance floor, VR performers and poi spinner, and turned the upstairs green room into a gorgeous lounge.
