The Buzz

Posted by Team Meza on Oct 29, 2019

So, for years now we've been scouting areas throughout Texas and building our own personal data base of potential shooting locations. On a recent trip to Austin we were able to set up a tour of the New Republic Studios thanks to President Mindy Raymond Benson who cleared her schedule and showed us around personally. Above are just a few pictures we took of the enormous 200 acre backlot. This small collage doesn't even come close to showcasing everything that this giant production facility has to offer. It has all of the necessary amenities and coneniences to fit any size production. It has production offices, conference rooms, screening rooms and ADR/isolation rooms. Four sound stages ranging from 1,200 square feet to 3,000 square feet. As well as, acres of high plains, open pastures, wooded areas, and access to the Colorado River. They offer everything creative possibility imaginable along with very affordable rates. The most exciting part of the tour was when we were shown the detailed plans for various stages of future expansion. It is truly on the Disney World level of ambition and it was mind blowing to think we could have something like that here in Texas on day. In conclusion, all of the staff members we met were very nice and enthusiastic. Thank you to Corey Green and Wesley Falk with Lucky Giraffe for your kind words. They do onsite carpentry, metalwork, and fabrication. Also, Thank you to John Robison, one of the owners of New Republic Studios for your encouragement. Lastly, A Very Huge Thank You to President Mindy Raymon Benson for coordinating the tour with us and for giving us the VIP treatment. We appreciate your warm hospitality and sincerity. We urge everyone in this business to film in Texas and to take a look into New Republic Studios. You won't regret it!  For more information visit
