The 32Ten Studios has recently hosted on-site production projects for a diverse range of clients including Robin Williams & PBS Kia Cadillac Polycom US Cellular and an indie film according to president and CEO Tim Partridge President/CEO and Greg Maloney COO.

  Academy Award winner Robin Williams a local resident used 32Ten Studios for two high profile television productions one for national PBS and the other for McIntosh Films.  PBS's series Pioneers of Television producer Steve Boettcher said Robin recommended 32Ten to us because of the location facility and the staff.  We were blown away by the quality of the production facility and especially the staff.  Our experience at 32Ten was outstanding. Robin Williams can be seen on Pioneers of Television in the fall on national PBS.
 Two production companies Bandito Brothers and Furlined Productions have shot car commercials very recently at 32Ten Studios. Bandito Brothers shot footage for a new commercial featuring the Kia Sorento while Furlined Productions shot a TV spot for the new Cadillac XTS. Jof Hanwright a location manager who works with Furlined Productions said It was a pleasure to work at 32Ten – great staff very accommodating. Made shooting there a pleasure.
 Additionally industrial producer John McNeil Studio also rented out the 32Ten Studios stage for a week to shoot a project for video conference giant Polycom.

 A retro-futuristic short indie film Neon also shot a scene at 32Ten Studios. Neon is a nostalgia-infused story about a guy a girl and a gun taking place over a single night. The film stars Johnny Turco and Liana Hee alongside iconic cars from the 70s and 80s.  Neon is co-directed by Charles Choo and Sean Wells written by Nic Anastassiou.  

 Said Sean Wells In scouting for non-descript warehouse exteriors in the bay area we found 32Ten 's Main Stage building to fit the bill perfectly.  Shooting in a controlled lot with proper accommodations made the shoot a possibility.  Greg Anthony Stephanie and the crew at 32Ten were a complete pleasure to work with and incredibly helpful along the way. We're hoping to move indoors and put their world-class stage to use on future projects. Finally the Model Shop at 32Ten has just completed its first job providing an on-set model for a TV commercial for US Cellular which was produced by local company Locksmith Content through ad agency Riney.   Producer Robert Caruso said “I’ve worked at this facility and with these artists many times in the past when the site was owned and operated by previous entities and was delighted to see that 32Ten Studios is continuing the long-held tradition of providing unparalleled special effects there. They produced a beautiful model for us and I certainly look forward to working there again sometime soon.” 

 Said Partridge “We are beyond thrilled that our production facility and practical FX unit have been embraced so rapidly by the Bay Area production and advertising communities. We have quickly established a new name brand and look forward to continuing—and expanding—our outreach in the coming months ahead to also include film episodic TV and other multi-media projects shooting here.”
