Boulder Digital Arts Production Studio
Available for BDA Members from only $50/hour!
Whether you're shooting video or stills, having the controlled environment of a professional studio can make your life a lot easier - no airplanes flying overhead, no dogs running through your frame, and no rain! BDA has partnered with MEDIUM Studio 1 in downtown Boulder to provide an affordable, state-of-the-art professional studio that can be rented at an extremely low cost by BDA members!
How It Works
The MEDIUM Studio 1 is available by reservation, and can be used during the day, evening, and on weekends. For BDA members, the cost is only $50 an hour on weekdays, with a two-hour minimum! It's an even better deal for a full weekday - 8 hours for ONLY $250! BDA Membership saves you over 30% off standard rates.
With its central location next to the Pearl Street Mall in downtown Boulder, our production studio is perfect for everything from basic interviews to multi-camera productions at a very affordable price. Studio hours are 9am to 10pm, excluding holidays. Reservations are required - please email us to make your reservation.
Since the production studio is located right on the premises of a professional video and photo production company, you'll also have the opportunity to rent any cameras/lighting/lens/grip gear if you need it. All equipment rentals are discounted by 15% for BDA members! Visit their website to see a complete inventory of camera bodies, lenses, and more.
