Located in the heart of the Liberty Village neighborhood in Toronto, Ontario is Herne Hill’s studio. Our state of the art screening room is uniquely designed for remote sessions, while the natural light of the kitchen allows our custom fitted green screen to pop whenever we need. We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to lunch or late-night food offerings, and the relaxed, family friendly atmosphere of the neighbourhood permeates the workspace to challenge the grinding mentality and remind us that our work, while sometimes challenging, is ultimately exciting and rewarding.
