What our customers say

It's my second visit and counting!

Shaun made me feel really comfortable, took SO many pictures of us during our session (we didn't even notice) and now have so much content to share on our socials. Our mix and video sounds/looks incredible too!

Luke seth, vocalist

The Studio is beautifully equipped!

The studio is beautifully equipped with unique and interesting instruments. I loved his guitar collection and particularly his pianos. To top it off, the final performance was perfectly edited, mixed and mastered promptly.

MARCO GALEA, MUSICIAN

UPSTUDIO is the one!

The studio looked great on the video, and Shaun really knew what he was doing.It was great to have a fellow musician behind the desk. The outside of the building was also a great back drop for band photos!

the surroundings

Natural, grungy and beautiful.

We’re located inside a large business park surrounded by traditional Art Deco style character buildings, rugged metal staircases, grungy concrete structures and big metal shipping containers.

On first look it can seem messy and unkept, but it’s beauty is undeniable. There’s so many hidden spots for some cool footage or alternative shots.

Take a look for yourself.

Offering a space which can do both audio and video can be tricky, however with the right lighting, decor and professionals on hand to capture your work, both of our spaces translate perfectly audibly and visibly!
