Mass FX Media has expanded into a new 5,000-square-foot facility with design-forward post-production capabilities and a Dolby Atmos theater for sound mixing, color grading and QC screenings, the company said. The move comes on the heels of the Denver-based post-production studio producing animation and visual effects for documentaries Netflix’s The Social Dilemma and Chasing Coral and Hulu’s The Jewel Thief as well as many direct-to-brand motion design projects.
Mass FX Media’s new space is located northwest of Denver in Wheat Ridge. The company spent 18 months building the space, which includes a multipurpose front lobby and conference center and 20 seat-theater. The state-of-the-art space includes Meyer Acheron series loudspeakers, Christie 4K digital laser projection, 17-foot Stewart SnoMatte 100 screen, comfy seats and functional work surfaces. Additional displays in the adjoining lobby create an overflow room for larger screenings and parties.
“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 Shawna Schultz, who co-founded Mass FX alongside husband Matt 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.”
In addition to the theater, the new space features both dedicated offices and common areas that encourage interaction among Mass FX’s staff and clients. The space was also carefully 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. 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,” Schultz said..
“To Shawna’s point, we’re offering a continuity of creative and aligned vision across the entire project and post process,” said Matt Schultz. “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.”
