To say that the team here at GreenlightGO is excited is a bit of an understatement. We are extremely proud to announce the launch of GreenlightGO! Our platform offers an exciting new way to match content creators to premium post and production spaces whether for film, television, or commercials. In fact, we offer hundreds of thousands of square feet and can flex to your needs, no matter the size of the project. Though we’ll be in beta for a few months, this is an exciting moment that will open the floodgates to some of the best production and post production spaces available.
How Did GreenlightGO Come About?
We’ve seen fundamental shifts in the television/film production business, shifts that are changing the game for networks and production companies. With the "hurry up and wait" dynamic of the business, many top-tier production spaces have vacant space at certain times. This uncapped space resource could be an additional source of income, while also reducing the strain on budget for creators.
GreenlightGO solves these problems by matching network and producer needs with underutilized production resources in New York and around the country. Our bespoke approach offers a white-glove solution, ensuring that each project is realized with ease, while putting more green on the screen.
Why We’re Set to Change the Stage:
Looking to create your masterpiece while saving cash? Content creators save cash while utilizing the very best post and production resources available. And we mean it: Our spaces have delivered to industry giants like Netflix, Amazon, History, and more.
Own a production space? You’ll enjoy a new stream of income. Rest easy in knowing that we’ve done the homework and only include the most premium spaces available, while respecting your privacy and specific needs.
And it gets even better: We offer a multitude of services from industry professionals, whether you need legal help, or simply need to offload the books to a reputable accountant. Check out our Other Services and you’ll see that we are truly a one-stop-shop for all of your production needs.
