Glass Iris Productions was founded by Matthew Johnson and Lauren Scoville with the intention of bringing the studio to the small business.
"As filmmakers we understand that you have an idea that needs attention to grow. We will provide the necessary care and resources to help promote and strengthen your idea using visual media."
Founded in 2016, our studio has worked alongside doughnut shops, neighborhood sports teams, local non-profits and marched for Science. We have created several short films using local actors and crew from the Pacific Northwest.
We pride ourselves on using micro-budgets to give our customers more bang for their buck! This means effective promotional material and quality work while saving on the budget.
In 2018 we moved from our garage in Federal Way to our very own studio in downtown Seattle! With a photo backdrop, green screen space, light grid and soundproof voice-over booth, we have created a self-sufficient headquarters for digital media that is at your disposal.
It's now 2019 and our future is burning hot! With the new addition to our talented team, our studio is now growing and we want to pass on the good karma. We have opened our doors to people who wish to get involved with the film industry in just about any capacity. Our classes teach much more than just "acting". We familiarize people with every aspect of the production and how to work as a professional while on set. It all culminates in a finished production that will give everyone the much-needed experience that all producers are looking for.
