Thomas Studios

Thomas Studios

Thomas Studios, literally three studios in one, was designed to the movie industry's most demanding standards, and created as an adjunct to the highly successful Thomas FX special effects equipment rental, production supply, set-dec and props facility located adjacent to the Studio.

Thomas Studios features nearly 8,000 sq ft of functional space, including a 4,000 sound stage with acoustically insulated walls and ceilings, clear span space, permanent lighting and rigging ceiling grids, seismically insulated floor for motion control operation, and pre-installed green and blue screens. A white corner cove white cyclorama, and travelling blacks provide additional flexibility. (NOTE: The studio is not pre-lit as our clients prefer to bring in their own lighting.)

The Thomas soundstage remains a "state of the art" special effects studio. The first of its kind in Canada, the studio is popular with rock video, commercial, television and film production users, and also enjoys a stellar reputation within the entertainment and event industries as one of Vancouver's premier special effects and insert soundstages.
