ABOUT

Yes, those are chickens.

32TEN Studios is a collective of practical effects magicians.

The creative team at 32TEN Studios includes artists, storytellers, producers, model makers, technicians, directors, fabricators, and cinematographers — essentially a ready-to-go production crew. Our decades of experience in the San Francisco Bay Area production community enables us to find and hire the right crew for any sized project.

32TEN Studios is located on the legendary lot in Marin County where Industrial Light & Magic built a state of the art production facility for the creation of ground-breaking visual effects.

In fact, the current 32TEN Studios facility includes the shop where models for such legendary franchises as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean were imagined and created.

Led by Tim Partridge, Greg Maloney, Greg Beaumonte, Geoff Heron and Sean House, 32TEN Studios has the experience and knowledge needed to deliver the unique combination of realism and impact that practical effects add to any scene.

We look forward to helping bring your scene to life.
