Studio

The opticnerve™ studios are located directly on New York City Harbor's waterfront in an historic warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Miraculously, the studios were unharmed by the devastation of hurricane Sandy. 

The main studio and lounge house edit suites One and Two.
Edit One presents on a 10x5 foot screen in a movie theater environment; Edit Two features a 55 inch LED monitor.

Our production studio is home to three more edit and graphics stations and a production pit and open area for insert shooting. 

The studios feature original painted murals created by opticnerve™ studio members, a full kitchen, a fireplace and a gargantuan sound system. 

We also boast an indoor swing, a DJ booth, a steam shower, an intractable Yorkie puppy, a vintage 1976 Checker Marathon for transporting clients, and one of the most incredible water views on the planet.
