Pie in the Sky Studio 1

Where it all began in 2002, has an aesthetic space uninterrupted by outside noise and features extensive lighting & grip package on site. All of our gear, working (and resting) areas and the ease of use of our facility has been customized to become the finest studio of its size in Toronto. All our equipment has it's own "pie blue" color marking on it, to distinguish it from any gear you may bring along, making break down a breeze and "end of the day confusion" a thing of the past.


Extra features include full support facilities, musical washrooms and a library. You may also like to know that we are packrats and have lots of stuff in the basement that may come in handy..or if you happen to be in the mood for badminton...
