About Pacific Studios

pacificbuilding

Pacific Studios first opened its doors in the late 1920s. As a family owned business, Pacific Studios was one of the first companies to introduce the Translight to the entertainment industry. As more Motion Picture Studios, Feature Films and Television shows began to emerge, Pacific Studios has kept up with the demand of bringing “the outdoors indoors” and providing clients with photo realistic backdrops to be used on soundstages.  This innovation not only helped mold the film and television industry but also cut costs and avoided the difficulties of shooting on location.  Pacific Studios went on to pioneer the Chromatrans, a colored photographic backdrop produced on Kodak’s Duratrans material. Chromatrans became the industry standard for backdrops used by Production Designers and Art Directors.

In February of 2015, Pacific Studios stock inventory of backdrops and extensive photographic library was purchased by long time employee Caren Wilson and her husband Jon Wilson and was moved to Sun Valley, CA to be more accessible to clients. Growing up in a Hollywood family that included her  mother, the late actress Jeanne Cooper (The Young and the Restless), and brother, Corbin Bernsen (LA LAW, Psych), allows Caren  to understand, create and maintain lasting relationships with her clientele.  Jon Wilson is an accomplished photographer who is skilled at large format Photography.

Today Pacific Studios has expanded its services beyond rentals and once again has begun producing backdrops on various substrates.  It is the goal of Jon and Caren to successfully fulfill their client’s needs while being mindful of staying within budget and meeting required deadlines. The philosophy of Pacific Studios is quite simple. The art to successful filmmaking must be based upon a synergistic collaboration. While a backdrop is meant to be just that, a part of the background, it inherently helps set the tone and mood of a scene. Pacific Studios is here to help you achieve just that!
