Project Reboot 2013

Project Reboot 2013 has wrapped and we couldn't be happier with the turn out. From the open houses to the SOMA-Palooza after party, Reboot broke down that great electronic barrier, known as the internet, to bring San Francisco's production community together.

Ok, so we used the internet to live-stream the event, but whatever, it's the new millennium. Get with the times already. With such great music, drinks, prizes and people at this years event, it's no doubt that we are already planning for the next Reboot. Check out the photos of some great facilities and the awesome after party.

Swap Meet 2012

The Swap Meet this past Saturday Sept. 15th was a stab at hosting and creating another "real life" event to get people together. We had some gear, and knew others did too, and thought it would be a nice excuse to throw another mixer - this time with a different flavor. We did learn something from this event - back in the day, equipment lasted much longer and wasn't considered as disposable as today's computer driven tools. So while the traditional SD gear has a long lifespan, it is definitely not applicable in today's world! It brought into question as to whether a Film & Video Swap Meet is something that can be sustained, when the gear is rendered obsolete so quickly...

While not much money was to be made, it was worthwhile for us (and we hope the others who participated!) to clear out space and clean shop! In the end we wound up donating almost all of it to NATAS' Bay Area Media Museum, as well as donating some carts to the San Francisco Public Library and other miscellaneous stuff to Goodwill.

We also raised a couple hundred dollars for the Blind Babies Foundation - go production community!

2012 NorCal Emmys

The 41st Annual Northern California Area Emmys® Awards Show took place this past Saturday, June 9th, at the Hilton in San Francisco.  The Beyond Pix team was on-hand from start to finish, providing crew and gear and helping to produce the event.  We even created an interstitial video called "Off the Air", a teaser spoof of "Survivor" in which people from different local stations participated in the scripted short.

This was our fourth year working on the Emmys, and it was the biggest and best yet!  A multi-cam show consisting of two ballrooms, multiple screen displays, a dance number, live band, and a post-show winner interview set-up just to name a few elements. We coordinated with Lenny of Full View Media to webcast the show live, and while the event may now be over you will be able to view winner clips - complete with acceptance speech and post-interview - on

Project Reboot 2012

Thirty-one companies. Food and beverage sponsors. Live music. New tech raffle prizes. Over 350 people. The event? Project Reboot. This event, which can best be described as a San Francisco Production Crawl, was initiated by Beyond Pix Studios and quickly embraced by the area's production community. Participation was massive, from brick and mortar companies to organizations like the NCPC and PGA, all pooling resources and contacts for the success of the event. It started at 3PM, with companies hosting their own open houses as well as organizations with display tables set-up at Beyond Pix Studios @Bayshore. But when 6PM hit, it was all party as everyone switched gears and the band Max Bran Beat started playing for SOMA-palooza. There was great suspense as all the guests waited with baited breath for the raffle drawing - everyone hoping they would be the ones to win the New iPad or one of several other great prizes. Project Reboot was the first event of its kind, and many people hope it is not the last.

NATAS "Show Me the Idea" Event

This past Thursday March 15th 2012 there was a gathering at Beyond Pix Studios @Bayshore for individuals to have the chance to pitch their TV show program ideas to a panel of experts for feedback and advice. It was a genuine atmosphere of sharing, with everyone learning not only from feedback on their own idea but also from other peoples' pitches. There was all-around enthusiastic audience participation, even from some puppets!

"Blue Jasmine" @Bayshore

In August 2012 friend and associate of Beyond Pix, Debbie Brubaker, brought the Woody Allen Summer Project to the Beyond Pix Studios @Bayshore soundstage to shoot tests and a scene with Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett. Now that the trailer is out we are excited to show some of our behind-the-scenes photos from the upcoming feature, titled Blue Jasmine.

“It was great to have Woody and company work in the stage,” said Brubaker. “It will be fun to see @Bayshore on the silver screen!” Check out the photos and be sure to see the movie now that it's hit theaters.

Debbie Brubaker is Executive Chair of the Directors Guild of America (SFCC) and is on the Board of Directors at the San Francisco Digital Film School.


Mythbusters Again!

Hands down, we’re fans of the show Mythbusters while on the other hand, we suspect they’re a fan of our @Bayshore stage. For one of their ever intriguing episodes, they tested whether hand drying by paper towel vs. air dryers to determine which one is more sanitary.

To conduct the experiment, they built a temporary bathroom in our stage and called on some volunteers and the results were... in the end, handily obvious. We thank Jamie, Adam and the Mythbusters crew for making us one of your handy locations. We work well together hand in hand.


'Sounds of Silence"

Can you hear me now? We hope not!

In our quest to create San Francisco’s premier soundstage, we’re continually updating our @Bayshore location. The newest addition is a 34 by 17 foot sound wall that will help to keep things a little quieter between our neighbors and our productions.

It was a big job, but our in-house crew worked extra hard to get the project done right and in time for our client to shoot four days after construction began. We started the process by building a robust frame. Then we stuffed the cavities with insulation, nailed on sound boards, and covered it with sheetrock. After taping, mudding, sanding and painting, it’s now a beautiful green monster (not to take anything away from Fenway Park).

Check out the project video to see the birth of our new soundwall!


"Force of Beauty"

  • Bare Escentuals, one of the worlds leading beauty brands in mineral make-up products, commissioned Colemanfilm Media Group to create a high end promotional/instructional video. With the help of Corduroy Media, Beyond Pix Studio’s @Bayshore stage was the facility chosen and as you’ll see, it played an essential role in their production style.
  • Directed by Michael Coleman
  • Produced by Carl D. Brown

    "Echo Handler"

  • Bay Area creative powerhouse GB Films rented @Bayshore for a product shoot. As you can see from their work, it was a complex shoot with all the setup of a very complicated Labcyte machine. Combined with their fantastic computer graphics & animation and on-location shoot, this top of the line product launch video is what keeps GB Films one of the region’s best production companies.
