Mass FX Media announced the expansion of its post-production capabilities with the launch of its new, custom-built studio that boasts a premier Dolby Atmos theater for sound mixing, color grading, and QC screenings. Relocation to the new facility follows several successful animation and visual effects projects, including The Social Dilemma, Chasing Coral, The Jewel Thief, and direct-to-brand motion design projects.
According to Mass FX, the state-of-the-art, 5,000-square-foot facility has been purpose-built for creatives and engineered to meet color and sound specifications. Located in the Wheat Ridge community northwest of Denver, the new location took 18 months to build and is equipped “with an intentional balance of technology and creative comfort.”
“Building this new studio has been my dream because we can now support our amazing team of creatives with a space that helps us work the way we want to work,” said Mass FX co-founder Shawna Schultz. “Every space—from the theater and conference room to the offices and even the kitchen—is designed so we can creatively collaborate. I’m most excited because I know we’re going to do our best work here, and just a few weeks in, it’s already been better than I imagined.”
Mass FX’s new studio features a multipurpose front lobby, conference area, and a 20-seat theater featuring Meyer Acheron series loudspeakers, Christie 4K digital laser projection, 17-foot Stewart SnoMatte 100 screen, comfortable seating, and functional work surfaces.
The new space also features dedicated offices and common areas to encourage interaction among Mass FX’s staff and clients. It is designed to meet stringent access and security requirements for high-security projects that move through the studio.
“Our new space isn’t just about outgrowing the 1,300-square-foot office where we became a premium storytelling team,” explained Schultz. “It’s about giving our projects and clients the consistency of one creative vision during the post process…providing a one-stop shop that allows us to shorten production timelines and make tweaks on the spot during finishing.”
“To Shawna’s point, we’re offering a continuity of creative and aligned vision across the entire project and post-process,” added co-founder Matt Schultz (and Shawna’s husband). “I want people to come to us and feel that we have the big picture at heart…that when we set forth to do something, the creative will be informed not only by stunning design and elegant motion but also in how editorial, sound, and color choices combine to create a unified, excellent product.”
