So I'm looking for a bit of help. I recently came into an incredible situation where I have the opportunity to build a brand new facility. I'm trying to be around central/western pa, the best part being I can put the building anywhere theres open land. I'm gunning for a fully function music/post studio with a live room, 2 booths, control room, 5.1 mix room, a small live venue on another side of the building, with a room that will allow me to press vinyl(yes, i'm serious) and potentially room for a small label to operate, or merch or a small record store....etc.....
now I want my live room to be one that everyone wants to use, and that everyone can afford, as well as have it available to rent for producers/engineers on the move, or that just find it to be a cool place and they want to use it.
The post side, I'm gunning more for audio for commercials, and short trailers for now, but I would like the whole facility to have room to expand. I would also like to integrate both sides of the facility to work seem-lessly over a single network. To have control everywhere I can. I have a lot of resources that are getting ready to go to work with me, and I really want to put myself on the map. It could be a time consuming process, but consider this day one. Hopefully if all goes well, I'll have a thread popping up under photo diaries
Consider most of that the tip of the ice berg, I have so many more ideas as well. I've been writing them down and my "colleagues" and I have been adding and taking from the list and hopefully look to start choosing the best ideas here shortly. I have one working on a market analysis and doing a lot of other research in the area as well(I couldn't give him justice if I tried to elaborate further) so we can really do this the right way.
My question is: does anyone have any experience with something like this(I know a lot of you do) that would be willing to let me pick your brain a bit? I'm super excited but I have a lot I need to learn. I don't want to be taken lightly. I'd really appreciate it!
