Samson Stages is New York’s go-to television and film production studio, with over 17,000 square feet of full-service sound stages, studios, on-site G&E rentals, and a myriad of additional modern amenities, Samson Stages has everything needed for the film, television show, commercial, music video or production.
With COVID-19 running ramped the past 12 months most of Hollywood, and even more of NYC has eerily been shut down. This move has cost film studios, crews, talent, and even cities multi-millions of dollars in lost opportunities.
In spite of the chaos, one film studio in New York managed to work with some of the biggest names in Hollywood and around the world. Not to mention during one of the most difficult times America has seen in the last 100 years.
Samson Stages has been providing cutting-edge film and music video production in the Brooklyn, New York area for over 10 years. And most recently.
The iconic artist that produced us the hit song “Don’t Start Now” has come out with the new music video to the song called “We’re Good” on her ‘Future Nostalgia’ album. The 22-year-old singer and songwriter, Dua Lipa takes on a unique journey on this Titanic-themed music video filmed at Samson Stages, Hicks Stage.
Last year, Lipa’s “Future Nostalgia” — a sophomore LP full of sticky vocal melodies, shimmering guitar licks, and crazy-funky bass lines — topped the U.K. album chart and was certified gold in the U.S. “Don’t Start Now,” the project’s disco-throwback lead single, has been streamed nearly 2 billion times on Spotify and YouTube.
To date, the music video Lipa created at Samson Stages has garnished well over 27 million views on just YouTube alone.
But that’s not all, Samson Stages also had the pleasure of shooting world-renowned actor Ryan Reynolds during the pandemic. Not once but 3 different times, Ryan Reynolds shot at the world-famous Samson Stages.
So how have Samson Stages been able to snag such world-class Hollywood talent while New York was shut down because of the pandemic?
They installed iWave filtering systems which effectively decontaminates any air droplets in the space. The film studio also allows for extended time for film crews to get set up without having to compromise time and safety. Medical-grade PPE is available on-premises along with touchless hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the soundstage. They also extended day rates to avoid rushing or restricting client’s creativity.
Samson Stages is the leading film studio rental in New York and they continue to set the bar higher with every project.
