About Us

1st Stage Studio is a high-value, business-oriented studio that has seen too many people forced to use bad offices or warehouse space to record audio and video that doesn’t meet the expected quality in today’s digital world.

Tom Eaton, the owner, has over 40 years of experience and made sure that the facility was outfitted with cyc lighting, sound baffling and other amenities that make the studio ready to go.

Tom says, “My goal was to create a professional studio with all the elements a producer, director or DP would need while keeping projects on budget… no nickel & diming!” If you need full-service production or equipment rentals, we have them too. We have remained focused on being a great value facility, a Big Bang for your buck!

Call us to schedule a tour of our facility. We are in Wauconda, Illinois, just 35 miles northwest of the city of Chicago.  The most studio you will ever see at $675 per 8-hour day.
