About the Film Studio

Made possible by the generosity and vision of a private donor, Azusa Pacific University inaugurated the Galileo Film Studio in spring 2011. Conceived as a 3D production facility, the studio intends to bring cutting-edge visual technology to the university community. The soundstage is available for university projects as well as rental to outside groups. Commercial groups will find APU staff welcoming and helpful, and the space perfect for a variety of production applications.

The soundstage provides the opportunity to film against a green screen in 2D or 3D. The green screen dimensions are approximately 40' wide, 30'–35’ deep, and 12' high, and the lighting package is designed to support the special needs of green screen applications. The studio is equipped with basic production support supplies including lighting scrims and stands, boom stands and microphones, sand bags, director chairs, 3D and standard scene clappers, extension cords, etc. All of this is available to clients who purchase the basic studio rental package.
