Gravity Media, the leading global provider of complex live broadcast facilities and production services to content owners, creators and distributors, has agreed the long-term licensing of Stage 5 at Docklands Studios Melbourne. The 750m2 sound stage is equipped for entertainment, game, panel, lifestyle, live-audience television shows, commercial shoots and events. The decision to take on the large site is part of Gravity Media’s plan to extend its local service offering and also meet growing demand for high-end studio space from content creators.
A key attraction with Stage 5 is its location, just five minutes from the centre of Melbourne, which is widely considered the screen and arts capital of Australia. The facility is ideal for all types of productions. It can hold an audience of up to 400 people and has many of the features of a traditional television studio with a sound attenuation of 50dB(a), motorised lighting hoists, silent air-conditioning and a super flat epoxy floor for camera pedestals. It also comes with eight dressing rooms, an audience holding area and production space.
