I had the pleasure of meeting with John Trozzolo, General Manager of StagePort, on Thursday. John gave me a tour of the complex located in the Crossroads Arts District in downtown Kansas City. StagePort is one of a growing number of film related businessed cropping up in the area. Boasting a 12,500 sq. ft. sound stage with a 30′ x 38′ green screen and a 16 ft ceiling, StagePort is specifically designed for photography, film, video, tv, sound recording auditions and multi-camera shoots. StagePort also offers lighting/grip equipment rentals as well as HD and SD video camera rental. Two smaller sound stages offer a hard wall green screens and excellent acoustics.
