“Have used the Backlot studio for one of our recent video shoots.

The space is a rare gem in the Canberra video industry and the amenities and service provided is first class. Everything was set up for our arrival knowing we were on very tight timelines to shoot over 25+ interviews over two days.

I highly recommend the Backlot studio to any professional for any kind of studio work!”
