Infinity Cove Hire

The infinity cove is a clean, green screen space with no horizon line. The lack of corners gives the impression that it goes on forever and consequently anything on it is perceived to be floating in space.

Properly lit an infinity cove creates a unique look that makes your product literally stand out. A video shot on an infinity cove, such as the one at our studio, simply screams production values.

The infinity cove is the heart of Galleon’s Manchester studio and the primary filming area; as such it is hired “pre-lit” to save you the time of deciding the correct lighting positions for your green screen video.  Further lights can be used to light the subject at no extra charge.

The advantage of a sparse cove is it gives your audience nowhere else to look but at your product or message. The green screen allows whatever you imagine or desire to be superimposed around your real life props or characters. You’ll be familiar with the many commercials, films and videos that use this technique and many of them have been shot here in the green screen infinity cove studio. The infinity cove available to hire at our studio is L shaped and 38ft in length and 10.6ft in height you can find our floor plan here.

The studio cove is always painted, free of charge, prior to your hire so it will always be clean. The cove is painted using Rosco chroma green video paint.

For video shoots the infinity cove is hired with a full lighting kit. This kit includes our complete range of lights that incude Arri’s, Dedo’s, Photonbeard’s, flourescent lights, Strands and many more. Galleon also include a lighting technician to assist you on every hire to enable you to get the “look” you’re after.  We also include our “live keyer”, a hardware chromakey mixer that allows you to preview your final key as you shoot.  You can learn more about it from our “green screen” page.

The studio cove is generally chroma green but it can be repainted to any colour for a painting fee.  The cost includes our time and returning the cove to it’s original colour contact us for exact costings.

If you’d like to come and look get a kit list or take a look at the infinity cove then contact the studio via email or phone.

Galleon Studios Goes Green

Galleon Studios uses 2 coat VFX paint to turn the studio from it’s normal white to green for special FX shooting. Phase 1 is is the base coat “Optic Green”, phase 2 is a second coat, the slightly darker “Deep Optic Green”. Properly lit the infinity cove can then be used to super impose any background one likes behind your shooting subject.
As the studio is generally white an additional painting fee is required to cover paint costs and time taken to transform the studio.
