What Is Independent Studios?

Indep Studios is an office and community resource for creatives in Melbourne. We help freelancers and start-ups from a variety of industries such as film and TV, graphic design, architects, journalism, and website professionals work and create efficiently.

Freelancers, small businesses and production teams work on extremely tight timelines and need their office space to be in sync with challenges provided by their work. This is where we step in. Our onsite management makes sure your working space is organised to suit your needs so you can be your best, productive self.

Film production teams like to use the studio as a preproduction and production space due to its location in Prahran with proximity to Chapel Street’s shooting locations. Production teams tend to reside in the South East suburbs such as Prahran, Windsor, St Kilda and South Yarra. Quick access to the Eastern suburbs such as Collingwood via Punt Road is a bonus.

What are creative cowork spaces?

Creative cowork spaces are office and studio spaces specifically designed for creative professionals. They maintain a balance between being social and connected while also allowing for privacy and professionalism. The cowork spaces at Indep Studios are designed to allow freelancers, small businesses and start-ups to collaborate in a creative environment that enables teams to work together effectively.

At Indep Studios we have more than 100 desks in various combinations split across two beautiful office levels allowing teams to collaborate or retreat and work privately. The main focus of our studio is for creative professionals, start-ups and freelancers to have a creative space purpose-built for creative industries where professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds are under the same roof.

Depending on individual budgets, freelancers can choose a private, dedicated work space or access hot desking. Hot desks allow for work and collaboration without the cost of a full-time space.

What is hot desking at Indep Studios?

Hot desking at Indep Studios is a great and flexible way for freelancers, writers and creative professionals to have access to a fully equipped office on demand. Hot desks allow professionals to come into the studio and work for the day with access to a desk, fully equipped kitchen, internet and phone, and become immersed in a highly productive, creative and professional working environment. Hot desking at Indep Studios is ideal for working professionals who don’t need a full time office, but still require the resources of a professional environment and want to connect with other creatives.

Located in Prahran, just 8 minutes from the Melbourne CBD via train on the Sandringham line and around the corner from Prahran station, hot desks at Indep Studios are a convenient and practical option for short term desk rental, or when you just need to rent an office for a day.

If I have a photo shoot can I get a park?

Thankfully we are one of the few offices to have onsite, non personal car parking which means that you can access a car park at Indep Studios for your most important production or shoot days.

All our car parks have high ceilings to allow production vehicles and 4WD’s to park undercover.

Some of our parks are free to allow for quick crew, director, or equipment drop offs. Other car parks are bookable at reasonable rates to allow for a dedicated booking.

Ask us anything. We love to chat.

If you have any more questions about anything at Indep Studios we would love to hear from you. Give Andy a call on 0409 978 378 or fill in the contact form below with your questions.

We look forward to hearing from you.
