Home Studio

Hey guys... i was surfing the net and did not find to much about home VIDEO!! studios. so i decided to make a post about it.

first off my home studio is not my work studio... it's just where I can spend some after hours working on projects and so on.

I posted a video (below) giving a little tour of my setup. now keep in mind this video is not for PRIMETIME, it was shot just for dvinfo.net and it's users.

also the h264 conversion really made my blacks look like gray.

on the video i don't go into detail about all my equipment so if you have any questions about the decks or anything else you don't see that are behind doors or in the closet let me know ill be more then happy to answer.

take care guys

~Mike

Can't show you mine, as it is shortly going to be moved. For years I have worked in a 10' x 10' alcove off of my living room. Just enough space for the computer and filing cabinets. Gear was stored elsewhere. I'm in the process of finishing my garage as a combined video/photo studio. It will be a little over 625 square feet and will contain all of my equipment. Lacking pictures, here is the description:
Starting from the double garage door:
10' of shelving, floor to ceiling, for equipment.
Then, wrapping around one corner will be desktops of uniform height ... a total of 17'. Starting at the left is a four drawer legal size filing cabinet. Then a classic 1960's era metal desk 5' long. My paperwork area. Joining that is a modern looking corner computer desk 5' on a side. That is where my computer monitor, 24" video monitor, DVD player will reside.
Then a 72" high, standard 19" rackmount electronic equipment case. It will have all of my electronic gear inside, including computer (G5 MAC, External hard drives, duplicators, power amplifiers, cassete decks, etc.
To the immediate right of the equipment rack is another classic 70's grey metal desk.
Entry door to gargage.
Stair up to my wife's ceramic studio.
An entire wall of additional equipment and tool (used to be a carpenter) storage.
Other side of garage door.

In middle of room, 4' x 8' work table on wheels.

Works perfectly on a Mac, but I've found that recent updates from Microsoft mean that Windows PCs no longer 'play nice' when linking directly to a .mov file.

I've gone back to ensuring EVERY movie I upload to my server has an HTML page to go with it to handle embedding, the annoying 'click to activate' and plug-in checks.

Just using a Smith-Victor light set i had laying around the office... i figured they would fit in the room.... they still take up to much room so i am looking into installing celling brackets so that we have more floor room on set.
