What is Ares Studios?

Ares Studios is a unique film studio, open to all independent film and Star Trek fan film makers who want to use the amazing sets originally built for the ground-breaking film “Prelude to Axanar”. Ares Studios also makes the studio available for free to Georgia High School video production students, servicing 28 local high school programs, allowing students to film on Hollywood-quality sets, in a professional film environment.

Our Mission

Ares Studios is dedicated to helping filmmakers, from students to seasoned professionals, create exciting content on hollywood-quality sets.

We endeavor to give students opportunities to make films in an environment not otherwise available to them, while giving independent filmmakers the chance to shoot on a quality of set they could not achieve themselves.
