Some of NYC’s most innovative and ambitious entrepreneurs are moving to Gowanus, Brooklyn to do what they love. The neighborhood, long known for the charismatic and problematic Gowanus Canal, has seen quite a bit of change in the last few years. The post-industrial area now boasts an archery range, a rock climbing warehouse, dozens of bars and restaurants, and yes… even a Whole Foods.
Add to that list Bond Collective, a stunning, 47,000-square-foot coworking hub that’s home to freelancers, start-ups, and well-established businesses. In addition to providing a flexible, all-inclusive work environment, Bond also offers awesome digital production tools, and services to match.
Whether you’re looking to film a quick how-to, a virtual walkthrough, or an eight episode web series, the Bond Gowanus Production Studio has you covered. Use your own equipment or partner up with Bond community members BIB Media for access to state-of-the-art gear, including cameras, lighting, and audio. And if you need a little more assistance, you can rely on BIB’s pre-to-post production expertise.
Ready to take your podcast to the next level? Are sub-par voiceovers jeopardizing good pitches?

Mix your audio on Pro Tools and access a library of over 200,000 sound effects. Plus all members receive a 10% discount on equipment rental and services, provided by Full English.
