LOS ANGELES — Harbor (https://harborpicturecompany.com) is expanding its Los Angeles footprint with the addition of 10,000 square feet to its Santa Monica campus. The addition will include new creative editorial suites, supervised finishing suites and four new theaters. The expansion brings Harbor’s total Santa Monica presence to 10 theaters and 16,000 square feet of space for theatrical, episodic and commercial picture and sound finishing.
Located at 2908 Nebraska Avenue in Santa Monica, the new campus will be home to Harbor’s West Coast dailies, picture, sound, visual effects and motion graphics artists. The physical expansion will see Harbor grow its talent pool with the addition of select new artists, producers, engineers and client services specialists. This will also allow clients to continue working across Harbor locations globally with one point of contact.
Wayne Schlock, AIA, and Blue Point Architecture + Interiors, is collaborating with Harbor on the mid-century-inspired facility, which will be completed this summer. The location features outdoor space and ample parking, and its studios have been purpose-built to meet the needs of each genre and craft discipline.
The campus will support Dolby Atmos picture and sound in its theaters, giving clients the ability to screen final sound and picture. Capabilities will include 4K projection, 4K finishing and 10Gb redundant private network connectivity to Harbor’s global infrastructure and facilities in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Windsor and London.
“It is our vision to create the premier home for creative clients and craft talent in Los Angeles,” explains Zak Tucker, Harbor founder & CEO. “This campus will be the most modern and forward-looking in terms of technology and workflow. It will be intimately connected to Harbor’s global geographies, allowing for artist, production and technology workflow collaboration across territories. This expansion marks a major move in Harbor’s goal of being the preferred home for directors, cinematographers, studios, networks, streaming studios, agencies and brands to execute signature production and post production work at scale.”
