Ubiquity Studios open for biz

Irvine facility aims to serve multiple projects

With the goal of creating the “next Hollywood” in Irvine, Calif., Ubiquity Broadcasting Corp. is showcasing Ubiquity Studios.

The 30,000-square-foot 3D digital production facility – with the largest soundstages between L.A. and San Diego – is located near the convergence of the 405 and the 5 freeways in the commercial heart of Orange County. It boasts three stages, multiple edit suites, kitchen, hair salon and green room.

“Our goal is to move the center of gravity for content creation 50 miles south,” said Chris Carmichael, Ubiquity founder and CEO.

Facility is designed for feature, broadcast and digital media production. Its equipment includes Sony 4K F23 cameras as well as other Sony, Canon and Red cameras. The stages feature 30-foot ceilings plus green, blue and white infinity walls, elephant doors for vehicle shoots, cranes and grip trucks.

“I am currently shooting my next 3D IMAX feature on location in Tahiti and I can’t wait to get back to Ubiquity Studios to start post-production,” said Mike Prickett, Ubiquity’s director of cinematography.

Studio also sports edit bays connected via a high-speed fiber channel network and a viewing center for producers and execs. Future plans include a 4K 3D digital projection system and in-house theater.

Action sports brands recently shot a series of commercials in the facility. Other programming from Ubiquity includes “KJ Noons Uncaged,” a series focused on the career of lightweight champion fighter KJ Noons.
