Our passion for creating automotive photography and video meant finding a large production space in Austin, Texas, that allowed for drive on capability. It didn’t exist, so we built it. ROC Studio Austin is a 3,600 sq ft creative studio space that is enjoyed by our photography, videography, and film partners and clients. Our large front office space has been used as a classroom, screening room, green room, and more. Our studio has played host to not only several parades worth of classic and high-end sports cars, but everything from commercial shoots, music videos, and photography demonstrations.
ROC Austin’s business model is a first of its kind. In addition to serving the creative industries of Austin, our doors are also open to the entire automotive community with our unique drive on stage. Our resident media production company Right Over Crest was formed to create affordable options for premium automotive experiences in both digital and traditional mediums.
