October Moves To New Space
March 7, 2017 by Andrew Schneider
Chicago-based October Production + Post has officially moved into its new space at 400 N. Paulina.
Originally built as a factory making parts for Sherman tanks, it later was a tool and die shop for Harley Davidson and now it's a state of the art production studio.
"Again we’re pioneering," said Chris DeWinter, executive producer and partner at October. "Five years ago we moved into a space next to Fulton Market Cold Storage which, of course, eventually became Google, and as we out-grew our space we located a new one that offered, not only additional space, but parking for our clients, editors and producers."
The space features three large edit suites and five smaller productions stations all wired with Cat6a cable. If growth requires it can be expanded to add two more editorial suites.
The space is rounded out with a large kitchen, dedicated client workspaces a ping-pong table and bubble hockey game.
"There are a lot of us out there, with good talent, equipment and work ethic – there are a lot of good people in Chicago doing good things – what sets us apart?" DeWinter asks. "We’re doing everything we can to make it easy on our clients."
In their new home, October is currently doing work for Abbott, Jim Beam and grocery store Aldi.
