At NORKAI we champion the the craft of storytelling. In 2017 we set out to establish a stage/studio built by filmmakers, for other filmmakers, specifically independent and student filmmakers who cannot afford to rent gargantuan, sprawling soundstages for their films. We decided focusing on creating smaller, pre-built 'macro' standing sets that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive to lease. Our goal is to help the filmmaking community by providing creators with great value, allowing flexibility, affordability, and quality sets where visions can come to life without breaking the bank.
"NORKAI" Origin: In Japanese, Kai has a number of meanings, including "ocean" (海), "shell" (貝), "restoration" and "recovery". Located at the heart of the newly christened Downtown Los Angeles North Sea neighborhood, NorKai Stages has its roots grounded in its new rejuvenation with a nod to its past and proximity to Little Tokyo.
