The Mama Dog and the little Chihuahua, the face of the Studios in Oakland

Meet Mama Dog Studios

Mama Dog Studios is designed for creative professionals who demand a great client experience and high technical performance, including high quality audio capture.

Think designer carpet, light filled spaces, comfortable seating, a soundproof sound stage, bar accessories, chihuahuas and drive in access. It’s all in the details.

With over 5,000 sq ft of production space Mama Dog Studios has three main areas to choose from for your event, photography session or video production.

Additionally, the daylight photo studio acts as a dining area for 12, with easy access to our kitchen with tableware and utensils for your use.

The separate 30x30 photo studio and conference room with shared kitchen and bathroom amenities offers a smaller experience or added space for productions that need to stretch out or hold meetings and calls.

Housed in the same building as Corduroy Media, Mama Dog has the added benefit of creative and support services provided by Corduroy Media. Inquire for any additional support from Set Design and Creative Direction to add-ons like PA’s, PM’s, Editing and other support.
