Modern Studios, a 12,000-square-foot facility designed to make Tucson a national hub for video production and innovative commercials and film, is now open.

The facility houses two studios – 5,000 and 2,000 square feet – each equipped with world-class LED lighting from DMG Lumiere by Rosco. Each also boasts Pro Cyc cyclorama wall systems.

Modern Studios is also home to a MRMC BOLT Cinebot, which produces high-quality commercial, film, video and stock footage images. By mid-2019, it will add a MRMC Milo motion control rig, used for live action shooting and macro tabletop work.
