May 3, 2018 – Kurtis Productions

We used Ostrich Farm Studio recently to help send our footage quickly back to the UK for a fast turn around BBC documentary. Glenn was brilliant in getting us set up fast, making sure the team were happy, and dealt really well with our last minute requests! It was also very reasonably priced. Thanks again!

"I recently had the pleasure of cutting my first feature film out of Ostrich Farm Studio in South Pasadena. The facility was extremely client friendly, possessing all the amenities of a west side post house. Over the course of our four-month schedule, Glenn, the studio owner/manager, made sure all of our needs were attended to, handing everything from tech support to scheduling. He even accommodated our private screenings (not originally on the menu). If you’re looking for an Eastside post solution, check out Ostrich Farm Studio. This hidden gem studio was my creative sanctuary. I really can’t recommend it enough!"

December 19, 2017 – Aaron Fjellman, Panic House Films

Just wanted to say thanks for all your help and allowing us to utilize your beautiful studio! I truly loved it and will be back for more shoots!

July 27, 2017 – Christopher Lee, DP

Glenn great working with you again my man!!! You guys rock!!! Will definitely be recommending your studio to all the industry folks I know!

April 6, 2017 – Daniel Stagliano, Actor/Host

We came from Finland to Pasadena to film our documentary art film and did some interviews with scientist at Ostrich Farm Studio. Studio Manager Glenn Cunanan was very helpful in finding local crew, equipment and props so it was very easy and fun working with him and his staff. The studio itself was brand new and had style which made us feel cozy.
Also there’s many restaurants nearby, so very good location for our filming. Thank you all for the good work and warm & friendly atmosphere!

March 28, 2017 – Napa Films, Finland

Glenn is simply fabulous! A present, smart, professional and generous entrepreneur that makes a shoot a joy!

April 1, 2016 – Alex Dorsey, Producer/Business Consultant

Having recently wrapped a very successful two week charette, we feel it is of the utmost importance to express our heartfelt gratitude to our good friend and neighbor Glenn Cunanan, owner of Ostrich Farm Studio. Conveniently located just doors down from our own office, we were so thrilled to hold our ten day brainstorming intensive at OFS. In addition to being such an exquisitely designed, state-of-the-art space that was truly conducive to elevating our Favillians’ creativity, Glenn's exhibition of such stellar professionalism, attentiveness, and can-do attitude made these last two weeks not only stress free, but so much fun. Infinite thanks to Glenn and The Ostrich Farm Studio for such a wonderful experience!

February 15, 2016 – Favilli Studio

We came from Ireland and were understandably nervous as we hadn't visited the studio before filming but from the very beginning, we were absolutely blown away by this facility and its staff. The studio itself is state-of-the-art, modern, clean, tastefully designed and, most importantly for interviews, very quiet with fantastic acoustics in the room. But really, the main reason this is such a wonderful place to work is the owner. Glenn is a refreshing reminder that it is who you work in this business with that really counts and will ultimately make your project a success. No request was too big or small for him and he was so helpful to us in our shoot that after we left, his name became a shorthand term for anyone who helped us out. In fact, for the rest of the 6 week shoot, all across the US, whenever someone was helpful to us, the whole crew would smile and say: "That's so Glenn"!

October 2015 – Clare S, Producer  (PBS Documentary Feature - "The Farthest")

I have booked Studio 1 and 2 several times. Glenn and his staff are great! They are very courteous and go out of their way to make sure your shoot goes on without any problems. Glenn is a genuinely nice guy and loves to help out. He will even go out to grab equipment from the other studio if you need it at the studio you are at. These studios are the nicest I have ever booked. Both studios have a cyc wall, kitchen area, lounge area for clients, and a makeup/changing room.

February 3, 2017 – Jesse Peraza, Photographer

If you hate dealing with LA traffic and parking then I definitely recommend Ostrich Farm Studio. One of the studios has a large parking lot that is free to use and the other has free street parking. That is hard to beat! Pricing is well worth the service and experience you get. This is always my first choice for any shoots I have. Glenn really helped me with my music project! After shopping around with other studios, I found a place where I could combine professional video with high quality audio in a live recording!! It was exactly what I was looking for. No other place offered this. Glenn, thanks again for being flexible and creative!!

January 2017 – Dan Perkins, Musician

This studio is a great space for filming on a white cyc and green screen. It's a surprisingly a spacious place with its own green room and coloring facilities. To top it all off, Glenn and his staff are great hosts! They are super attentive, helpful, and just a pleasure to work with. I will absolutely work with them again and recommend their services to anyone.

April 29, 2016 – Justin G,  Director of Photography

The facility and the team are awesome! We came all the way from kuwait to shoot a video and edit. It was tough for us because we didn't neither have the required equipment nor the experience with the editing software. Suddenly, when nothing could get any better, Glenn came on and made everything easier. The video is awesome and everybody seems to like it. The credits goes to this amazing team and facility.

April 18, 2016 – Saleh M,  Traveling Filmmaker

Glenn! Thank you so much for everything you did to help our production yesterday! You went beyond and above what's expected and really, really came through for us!! Not only will I be back, but I'm sure some of my cast members will also use Ostrich Farm. Your warm and welcoming place was a delight to our entire cast! Again thank you, thank you!! I'll see you soon my friend!

April 11, 2016 – Dain Turner,  Producer and  Stunt Man

"This is the best studio in the Pasadena area! Beautiful cyc and very nice quiet ambiance, sound wise. Fully equipped with a great separate green room, make-up room, and an edit suite to check camera files while in the midst of shooting. Doesn't get any better. Unless you need to drive a car onto the set, you'd have to have a very small car or go to a big sound stage. Glenn is absolutely the best - a total Pro!"

December 23, 2015 – Richard Marshall, Producer/Director

"Had a wonderful three weeks filming interviews for our PBS documentary film in Glenn's beautiful studio. Everything was perfect - from the sound to the service. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Hope we get to come back to LA to film more interviews JUST to hang out there again!"

October 2015 – Emer Reynolds, Director (Crossing the Line Films)

I had an amazing experience working with Glenn Cunanan and his production staff in South Pasadena, CA. I had planned to use his service for a one-time shoot, however, I decided to come back. Glenn's professionalism and affordable pricing helped me accomplish exactly what we wanted. There is literally nothing negative to say about my experience, if there was, I would not hesitate to inform the public. Five Stars for Ostrich Farm Studio!! Thank you Glenn and I will indeed be seeing you soon!

April 8, 2016 – Lord Barrington, SMR and Cashout

Glenn, you've been so great throughout this journey to help us launch Concrete Blues. We appreciate your kind spirit and flexibility throughout the process. We hope to work with you in the future again.

May 2015 – The CB team, Apparel Designers

The studio is very beautiful and clean! Especially the owner who is very friendly:)!

January 17, 2016 – Yasuko Sakuragi, Makeup Artist

My time at Ostrich Farm Studio was fabulous!! The studio was very nice and clean! Glenn had fresh coffee, hot water for tea, water, and yummy snacks! =) We were there, shooting pictures for several hours, and Glenn made sure our experience was relaxed and fun! =)

January 18, 2016 – Lisa  M, Model /Actress

I had a wonderful experience here at Ostrich Farm Studio. Glenn was really helpful and had great customer service. I will definitely come back!!

February 27, 2016 – Israel S, TV Production

“Best studio to rent out. We used the place for 3 days. Throughout filming it was clean, had lots of room and was very easy (and super comfortable!!!) to shoot in. It also had great acoustics and the personnel were complete lifesavers. First day we arrived an hour late to setup and only had about an hour left, if we were going to stay on schedule. Glenn and Michael wasted no time giving us advice on camera placement, lighting, and letting us know where to get everything we needed. Because this place was so great, we were able to complete filming early and happy. Everyone at Ostrich Farm Studio has the best positive and professional demeanor. Combined with the great equipment and amazing space, I would recommend this studio to any small production. Can’t wait to book this place for my next project.”

January 2015 – Erica Valadez, Director

"Just had a photoshoot at this location and Glenn and his crew where a lot of help. Very accommodating. Very well prepared layout and an editing bay that was top notch. Safe area, plenty of free parking, coffee and tea! This was a versatile studio. You get a top quality studio for a fraction of the price. Oh one more thing....Allan (one of their interns) needs a wife, okay ladies."

January 11, 2016 – Michael Fernando, Photographer

Great studio for any type of project! Best costumer service I've seen in a studio! The owner and the staff were very helpful. We shot part of a short film in the studio, and for both the days that we worked there, they provided us with a pre-lit lighting grid which saved us a lot of time. We all felt so comfortable working at the studio, we will definitely come back to work there again!!

January 10, 2016 – Allan D, Filmmaker

“Glenn and Albert were like no other studio owners we’ve ever met. They were amazing. Really friendly, enthusiastic and they clearly love what they’ve created at Ostrich Studio. The studio is small, but it was exactly the right size for our two different shoots we had. One in Dec. 2014 and the other in Jan. 2015. They were happy to paint the stage white on very short notice. They helped us unload and they had coffee for us when we arrived. The studio itself is really great, clean, comfortable and well decorated. We shot in all areas and the footage looks amazing, including a bunch of head shots done on the outside patio. We also rented lights from them which were all ready when we got there. They were helpful throughout the day and took lots of still shots of our shoot while we were working which we were able to incorporate into our projects. We’re looking forward to shooting at Ostrich again very soon.”

– Kate Zenna, Actress/Producer

“This studio is outstanding and state of the art. It has everything you need to get the job done, but more importantly the owners provide exceptional customer service from start to finish considering every important detail to make your project a success. You will not be disappointed!”

– Jodi Walker, Speaker

“Easily one of the best studios I’ve worked in. They go out of their way to make sure everything is set up elegantly and efficiently. Glenn also made himself available for any questions I had, and his expertise went a long way! So glad to have had my production here!”

– David Gaafar, Producer

“The studio is an awesome place to shoot for video and photography. Glenn and Albert are true professionals. The location couldn’t be better including the parking accommodations. Equipment is top notch. Above all, the customer service is exceptional. Your clients will be impressed.”

– David Gomez, LAPD Production

“It was my first time working with a green screen and the experience couldn’t have been better in any other studio. They are very professional and know how to welcome you in the best way. The studio is clean and in good hands. If you ever considered doing a video shoot you should contact this studio.”

– Nathalie Fust, Model/Dancer

“Great place and positive enviorment. Glenn and Albert are amazing people to work with! If you want the job done professionally, come here.”

– Jade Flader, Sound Designer

“This place is The Best!! Glenn showed such awesome hospitality and really knows how to make you feel like family. Not only that, this facility offers Top of the Line equipment for all of your editing needs, etc. I highly recommend using Ostrich Farm Studio for your next project.”

– Joseph Demby, Editor

“I have known Glenn personally for over 20 years, having shot “high-end” event video with him and for him. Great guy…first things first! I’ve also seen many examples of his production chops and editing prowess for corporate clients. 3 years ago I had a challenging project of my own that involved very large photo files, some at quite large resolution and bit size from “stitch” technology, which needed precise and varied movement into and within them in 1080P plus tight synchronization with 12 minutes of audio track. I was eager to sit with him in his edit bay at Ostrich Farm which is always equipped with the highest quality equipment. Not only was I thrilled with my final product, but I thoroughly enjoyed the process working with him. 5 stars indeed!”

– Ron Fabienke, Warner Brothers

“Just checked out this boutique studio and felt like I had wandered into a multimedia Chocolate Factory. Being an audio enthusiast myself, I was stoked on the acoustic considerations, e.g. hand-built wall paneling and state-of-the-art sound proofing materials. This space is perfect for shooting and post. With its green-screen cyclorama and two editing bays, it doesn’t hurt that everything was immaculate and aesthetically impressive to boot. Clients can feel very comfortable while all of the technical sorcery is taking place.”

– Michael North

“I recently helped with an Indie Film at Ostrich Farm Studio. Glenn really goes out of his way to make sure all your needs are met comfortably! He provided all professional equipment that included lighting, editing, perfect cyc, and a green screen. The studio was spacious and clean….awesome green room too. Definitely a great environment to work on any photo shoots, music videos, short films and features. I highly recommend this place, especially for it’s dynamic and versatile setup. You can do everything here. The Eye Candy doesn’t hurt either.”

  – Albert Ortega, Musician

“I have worked in Hollywood for 20 years. While doing an independent film project, I discovered Ostrich Farm Studio as it was in close proximity to my clients. My project wasn’t big enough to justify a large studio, but important enough to engage a professional environment. Glenn helped our project immensely by offering his expertise and providing everything we could have asked for at a price that fit our budget with results second to none. I returned to do a photo shoot with the same awesome results. The studio atmosphere is top notch providing every amenity we could ever need. If anything was questionable, Glenn and Albert did everything to accommodate and rectify. Another plus is the studios location to the many coffee shops and restaurants on nearby Mission St. and Old Town Pasadena. Overall, having all the accoutrements of a Hollywood stage in the comforts of a boutique atmosphere, has made my experience at Ostrich Farm Studio a pleasure. I highly recommend.”
