New, 1 comment

ASTORIA—Kaufman Astoria Studios, the city's first and only backlot (for filming movies and such), held a ribbon cutting ceremony today, which was attending by Senator Chuck Shumer and Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. From the press release: "The 34,800-square-foot Backlot allows productions to construct temporary outdoor sets and shoot exterior and special effects shots within the campus. The lot is conveniently located adjacent to the sound stages, which supply power and support spaces, such as dressing rooms, production offices and set building workshops."
