澳门马会传真Film Production Studio

Studio Services and Equipment

Newly launched in 2023, the 澳门马会传真provides a unique state-of-the-art commercial film production studio for scientific and educational productions supporting the promotion and advancement of science. The film production studio incorporates a fully equipped laboratory.

The 澳门马会传真has a partnership with and strongly encourages interested production companies to retain their specialized services in cinematography for any productions at the MBL.

Animal Support and Maintenance

As part of the rental of MBL鈥檚 studio, the 澳门马会传真will provide 24-hour access to reserved laboratory studio space and specialized equipment. Specialized equipment consists of recirculating seawater systems including required filtration, such as biological, mechanical, and chemical filtration as well as UV sterilization and temperature control, to ensure optimal water quality and animal health. The 澳门马会传真will also provide supplemental animal care equipment such as hand nets, basters, tubing, pipets, water quality testing equipment, forceps, and other general laboratory/aquarium supplies. This system can support natural landscapes such as coral, anemones, etc. as well as the developmental requirements of various embryos and hatchlings. All equipment provided by the 澳门马会传真for projects will remain the property of the 澳门马会传真and must be returned at the end of the project. 澳门马会传真will provide appropriate exotic seawater discharge biosecurity throughout the project.

澳门马会传真provides a variety of marine organisms for filming through the Marine Resources Center. Accessory organisms such as coral, macro algae, fish, and other aquarium cohabitants are possible.

Included in a rental cost, the 澳门马会传真provides up to four hours per day, during normal business hours, of dedicated expert staff to aid in animal manipulations and to provide behavioral advice. Additional 澳门马会传真staff will be available to provide daily support during normal business hours to ensure space, tanks, and life support systems are in working order.

Rental Costs

Studio rental cost includes the lab studio space as well as the standard level of animal support and maintenance. Additional fees are charged for support or equipment that is not included in the standard level of support.

Accommodations

Depending on the timing of film production request, the 澳门马会传真provides on campus lodging and dining in its dormitory or apartment facilities. Additional information on the 澳门马会传真campus and the local area, including transportation to the campus can be found on the 澳门马会传真website.

澳门马会传真 the MBL

The 澳门马会传真is one of the oldest and most eminent private nonprofit research laboratories in the United States dedicated to exploring fundamental biology, understanding biodiversity and the environment, and informing the human condition through both research and education. It was the first private scientific institution in Woods Hole, MA. Its inception began in 1871 when the United States Department of Commerce鈥檚 Bureau of Fisheries was established.

Woods Hole is located at the confluence of two major biogeographic ecosystems that are home to a rich diversity of marine life. Warm water from the Gulf Stream meets with colder waters from Cape Cod Bay resulting in great biodiversity of marine organisms. An ideal location for a research laboratory. The ocean is the origin of all major animal lineages. The diversity of marine organisms is reflected in the enormous range of mechanisms for carrying out the basic processes of life.听 澳门马会传真scientists have harnessed this diversity to make fundamental contributions to our understanding of biology as well as significant advances in biotechnology and human health. Recent advances in areas such as genetics, neuroscience, physiology, developmental biology, imaging, and computation have expanded our ability to explore complex biological processes to address fundamental questions. 澳门马会传真uses marine and aquatic species to better understand similar evolution and development in humans. Its location is also ideal for research on coastal ecosystems and impacts of the ocean microbiome.

A summer-only institution during its first decades, today it has nearly 30 resident faculty and an expanding year-round education program including 22 world-renowned, graduate-level, Advanced Research Training Courses (ARTCs), many introducing new research organisms and cutting-edge techniques to students and academic faculty each year. It鈥檚 educational offerings also include a variety of undergraduate and high school courses and fellowships, as well as adult and professional learning courses.听 聽

Among the scientists with an affiliation to the 澳门马会传真(serving as a researcher, course faculty, and/or student), nearly 60 scientists have been recognized with Nobel Prizes since its founding in 1888. Some key discoveries made at the 澳门马会传真include mechanisms that explain nerve impulses, use of horseshoe crab blood to detect bacterial contamination, proteins that control cell division, including its lack of control in cancer, and how the transport of molecules is precisely controlled within cells.

Each year the 澳门马会传真accommodates nearly 2,000 visiting scientists, academic faculty, and students with its housing and dining facilities. In addition to its academic and visiting science programs, the 澳门马会传真hosts nearly 3,000 visitors in the spring and fall months for scientific meetings and conferences. The 澳门马会传真continues to serve as a destination for innovative, collaborative research and research training opportunities.
