We are a new art venue located just outside downtown Providence in the Crook Point Waterfront District.
We specialize in photography, as well as sound, music, and film production. Both in house and on location. We have and are continuing to assemble a team of people to help handle overflow and unique jobs, so please contact us or submit resumes if you’re interested in working contractually in photography, video/photo editing, or sound.
A lot of what we work on here is internal projects for our parent company, Jasmines Gifts, a Rhode Island Company. But we also work with the general public on local art projects, and we work with local photographers and videographers as well. We also have a small and expanding global network of satellite artists, editors and engineers.
During non black-out times, we offer high-quality space, props, clothing, backdrops, lighting, and photo/video cameras at some of the lowest rates in the city. Perhaps you need a location for an hour, the day, or the weekend, just send us an email or give us a call.
We have the latest, fully-loaded Apple computers for in-house use and workstation rental (ie., for such use as Ultra HD video editing, raw photo editing, and mixing). We have many softwares, all latest edition, including Final Cut X, Adobe Premier, Lightroom, Photoshop and Pro Tools.
Our mixing room is sound-treated and equipped with 8-inch Mackie Mark 3’s, subs, vactrol compressors, mixers, and the just-released Apollo Quad-core interface.
We do work with people with no budget who want to create art but can’t afford to hire us or rent our space. Subject to availability, and to support the community, we will do free services from time to time and we also do TFP-type and other barter-type deals.
Internally, we are always looking for actors, male and female models and female voice actresses. We purchase intellectual property such as photography, voice-over, video, music (ambient, instrumental, beat, melodies). We will produce local musicians and vocalists from time to time, it’s not our core focus but it is a passion of ours that we’re looking to expand on more and more. We use one of the best microphones in the world, direct from Telefunken headquarters. Ideal for vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar and piano. We can input anything digital, but note we can only record digital drums at this time, not acoustic drums. We have three pianos on location, two digital, one acoustic. Including the Roland HP-508 with 128-note polyphony piano memory modeled off the Grand Steinway.
We are looking to have a lot of fun here. But we’re also dead serious about creating some of the finest art the world has ever seen.
We welcome your suggestions, comments, praise, criticism, collaboration, and business.
Stay tuned for our opening posts and photo shoots, we were fortunate enough to do our first official shoot at this new location with a celebrity model and we will be sharing some highlights from that photo shoot in the coming days.
