Inside the Fastest Growing Film Studio in Atlanta

Within the past couple of years, Atlanta based production facility Classic Film Studios has done work with some of the top names in the music industry like Da Baby, Young Thug, Missy Elliott, and Summer Walker. They even just wrapped up providing film rigging and equipment for 50 Cent's upcoming epic movie "BMF".

Within 10,000 square feet, Classic Film Studios have all of the production amenities anyone would need to do music videos or photo shoots from editing suites, screening rooms, and a soundstage.

We chatted with Managing Partner Victor Bland on the set of "BMF" to talk about what sparked the popularity and quick success of Classic Film Studios.

Boss XL Mag - What made you open up your own studio?

I’ve always had a vision to have a studio. The promise I made to myself was when I started purchasing filming production gear is that if I ever needed to rent a storage space, that it would be time to open up a studio to store the gear. The studio would also be a multipurpose space where I wanted to shoot and edit my own videos.

Ironically, by the time I got enough gear to do that, I had moved to the point where I was Gaffing a lot of videos and renting my gear to the video productions. That’s when I saw another avenue to monetize myself and created my gear rental company, “Victor Vision”. So I was able to accomplish two dreams in one venture.

Boss XL Mag - What are some of the challenges of having your own studio?

Some of the challenges were trying to maintain the studio and operate at a level of professionalism and customer service that I like. Keeping up with the other form of my livelihood, which is actually working on film and tv production, which is a 60-70hr per week career in itself, while still maintaining my own personal business.

Boss XL Mag - What are some of your upcoming projects?

Work with Birth of Legends Record label and Music Group. Also stay tuned for some dope music and videos that will be out soon. We are also working with Other Worldly Productions, which is a film and video production company. We have a lot in the works for 2021 and beyond
