Minneapolis, MN (November 1, 2006)–Former sister companies BWN and Gasket Studios have taken their respective entities to the next level, establishing an innovative new 5,000-square-foot environment with a fluid floor plan that emphasizes collaboration and creativity.
“The development of this shared space came out of a combination of opportunity and a sense of community,” explained BWN co-founder/composer Ken Brahmstedt. “We enjoyed working in close proximity while under the Hi-Wire banner so we decided to keep that intact. We have the best of both worlds–independent businesses with connected space–in the heart of downtown.”
“We immediately feel for the vibe here and appreciate being close to our advertising clients like Carmichael Lynch, Fallon, Martin Williams, BBDO and Campbell Mithun,” adds Gasket Studios founder/creative director Greg Shultz. “Our building is connected to the Skyway system–we call it the habitrail–which is handy in the February deep freeze. But most important is the feeling of collaboration that this design exudes. It’s very unique and we love it.”
Music and sound company Brahmstedt White Noise formed in 2002 by Carl White and Ken Brahmstedt. BWN is part of a creative collective The Noises, which combines the talent of BWN with that of Richmond, VA music company ShockoeNoise. BWN’s Suite A boasts a myriad of instruments, a large projection screen, surround sound and doubles as a large recording room for making music and organic sound effects, while Suites B and C can tap into it for traditional live room recording via remote camera technology.
Gasket Studios is a design, visual effects and animation company that serves the commercial, interactive, music video and feature film markets. Launched by digital artist Greg Shultz Gasket Studios is comprised of a diverse group of artisans with talents ranging from cel animation to painting to video game design.
