After years , BES Studios has finally found a new home on an 8 acre wooded lot off Old Osborne Turnpike (near Rockett’s Landing and Stone Brewing). The building is 13,000 square feet that represents a nearly two million dollar capital investment in Henrico County. In addition to a 50 x 50 studio with cyc, there’s a spacious new lobby, kitchen, conference room, makeup & dressing rooms, 3 post suites, 2 audio suites with VO booth and client lounge. They hosted an open house last week and I took my camera for a video tour. (The music tracks are by BES Staff Composer Douglas E. Bischoff from the soundtrack to “Curtains” by Lew Fraga.)
