Contra Studios is a multi-arts production, photo, and video studio located in Chelsea, NYC. Our 15,000 sqft facility boasts 6 studios with 2 sound stages – perfect for Film, Photography, Fashion, Video Production, Castings, and Events. Beautiful bright open shoot rooms, professional staff, cyc-walls, and pro gear with all of the amenities needed for a wide variety of productions.

Recording audio in Manhattan can be a challenge. With ten years experience rolling sound with hundreds of logged video shoots, you can be sure your production is in good hands. A second sound stage, Studio D, now compliments Studio A, one white and one chroma green. 

With 3 cyc wall studios, including our newest, 23′ wide cove soundstage, we can handle just about any level production. From E-commerce to fashion to green screen film shoots we have rooms to fit your needs with rates you can afford. Starting at $950 per 10 hour day, including lights and grip.

Instead of one large studio room typical of most marquee NYC studios, Contra constructed multiple green rooms surrounding the shooting space, each one visible behind glass walls and doors. This gives clients, talent, producers, and wardrobe / HMU their own private rooms, limiting unnecessary prolonged face to face contact.  Click here for more info.
