Lowtown Studios is opening an innovative, modern creative space for video and photo shoots, as well as audio recording, with multiple stages and state-of-the-art equipment, all housed in one location.

Lowtown Studio

Lowtown Studios is a video and photography facility located at 2733 Cullen St. It opened July 6, bringing cutting-edge audio/visual capabilities in the form of a boutique studio, the company announcement said. But boutique doesn’t mean small. It means tailored down to the last detail to bring big ideas to fruition.

It’s been a vision years in the making, with local industry professionals brought into the planning and construction process. Among them is independent director, producer and film consultant Chris Rodriguez.

“The first reaction is ‘Wow! I can’t believe this is in our own back yard, that this is in DFW,’ ” Rodriguez said . “The level of quality is something right out of Hollywood.’”
President Douglas Mangold – who’s also a photographer, production manager and art director – summed up Lowtown’s mission: “Four stages. One roof. Zero limits. That pretty much says it all.”
The venue includes:
