Before we moved to our current location we wanted to outfit it exactly to our specifications. So we had to Heidi Montag it a little bit. For those of you under the age of 35 who don’t get that reference, we had to do a little bit of work on the building to get it up to a size “H”.
Quite a bit of the place was demo’d, walls busted down, new framing, dry-wall, sliding glass doors, green screen stage… ok you get the idea. Not only are we fortunate enough to be sharing a building with Rockefeller Partners Architects, they also designed the major changes to our new space. RPA drafted blueprints and helped us find the right vendors to get the building exactly how we wanted it.
All these photos were taken before we officially moved in in July of 2009. We moved in while the stage was being built, paint was going up on the walls… generally it was a disaster area. But all the paint fumes we inhaled were worth it. Check out more of the construction photos. Coming soon; The video where Nick moves drywall.
We’ve been in our current office for almost a year now. I want to take you through the evolution of our office(s). Clear-Media has been based in El Segundo since 2007. We were previously at 135 Main Street. Right next to a bar. In the afternoons we could watch the beer truck deliver kegs, and if we were working late enough in the evening we could hear music through the wall.
It was an escrow office before we moved in, hence the partitions and permanent desks. I can’t tell you how many times people came in asking for escrow advice.
For the amount of time we were there it was a great space for us. But whenever anyone had to edit or record music, which was a lot, it could get extremely annoying. Thankfully we have a sweet post-production set-up now with two separate editing bays, VO booth and recording studio, far from the other offices! Take a walk down memory lane with me and check out the original Clear-Media El Segundo office.
