Independent Filmmaking Studio In South Bay
For Filmmakers, By Filmmakers
For independent filmmakers in the Bay Area, look to the South Bay rather than San Francisco for your sound stage needs. Located in beautiful San Carlos, Meets the Eye Studios is easily accessible from Highway 101 and has free parking for clients looking to shoot their independent film at its immaculately kept facility. From stage options to equipment to amenities to price, Meets the Eye offers it all.
Our amenities and features were designed specifically with filmmakers in mind:
Two Large Soundstages for Rent
With both a pre-lit green screen and a white wall space available, filmmakers get their choice of soundstage options. Both spaces include large 12×12 loading doors for easy loading of everything from gaffer equipment to large set pieces.
Cast and Crew Amenities Including Free Parking
Productions have to do more than just film in the sound stage. Meets the Eye provides numerous amenities to keep cast and crew happy, starting with the commercial-quality kitchen preferred by professional caterers. A large green room, spacious lounge, clean showers, facility-wide wi-fi, and immaculately kept facility ensure that cast and crew are fed, comfortable, and connected during any down time.
Additional Office Space to Get Work Done
Need to make last-minute rewrites? Holding a casting session? Need privacy to discuss a situation? Meets the Eye provides additional office space and a large conference room for all of these situations. With ethernet connections and printer access, these spaces provide a professional environment for the crew. They’re also available for shooting, whether as an office location or dressed up as something else.
