How much would something like this cost
Just for shits and giggles
a couple of goats
praise allah. 40 virgins.
look at the folding wooden chairs with names on the back. they got for about $10,000 a piece
If you have to ask.......
s'rsly, the real estate is the big question. Look around your area to see what 10k feet of warehouse space is going for. Then figure on filling it with $100k-$300k worth of gear and another $20k-$70k for office shit.
There is a studio like that for sale here. $1.5 mill
1 MILLION dollars.
Interesting..so lets say I had ohh about 100 - 200k I can set a nice starter studio and slowly compare it to that.
thats a video setup, you'd never need that much for stills, and I wouldn't be using hot lights either
the space is teh hardest part to find, if you have the money for equipment, theres endless options
True, but I don't think a studio geared only towards still photography would be a smart move. He'd want to be able to entice video producers to shoot there to help pay the bills.
I can't even imagine how hot that room is
Our studio has a good A/C unit so it's not bad at all. But I don't pay the electric bill so I don't mind turning it way up.
However, we do have to turn the A/C unit off during takes if we're shooting audio. After some long takes, the place starts to really heat up. But our studio is much smaller than the one pictured. I've worked in some larger studios and the heat isn't a problem.
exactly. Thats what I want. I know some people with money might be able to convince them to be partners. Now I just need a hook to bring big movie studios to work on my island.
jc do you use gtalk or msn, id like to ask you some questions
older people write letters
should be pretty easy... you just have to make contacts.

thats the hard part
The hardest part will be to make a profit if and when you're set up. Then again, if you're the only studio in town, maybe filmmakers and photographers will flock to you once they know what you offer.
However, in this economy, I wouldn't count on it.
The hardest part about owning a studio like that is keeping it booked up.
Sure you might have a few production companies in town looking for a sound stage now and then, but unless you're in a huge market that thing is only going to be booked for a few days a week if you're lucky. That just doesn't pay the bills.
I've heard a lot of studio owners basically say that to stay profitable they need their space booked 4 days a week at least.
So unless you've got a TV show or something that's recurring, buying a studio is a huge gamble. Renting out space doesn't exactly pay that much.
