New Republic Studios is a motion picture, television, music and animation studio that opened in 2017 following the acquisition of Spiderwood Studios by John Robison. Located east of Austin, Texas, it is situated on 164 acres alongside the Colorado River and is the state’s largest privately owned studio.
New Republic Studios includes sound stages as well as fully equipped production offices and suites, audiobook / podcast studio, make-up rooms, a film vault, and R.V. park with full hook-ups. The facilities are capable of housing various sets that can be redressed. New Republic Studios produces feature films, television, animation, music recording as well as national and international commercials.
Home to a 24-foot-high, 100-foot-wide, green stage, New Republic Studios is often used for visual effects and wire stunts, and is equipped with a steel cat walk. It also has the capabilities to create artificial snow or rain and has visual effect capabilities. In addition, the facilities have a kitchen, dining room, several conference rooms, its own control room, edit bays, ADR/Isolation rooms, and storage.
New Republic Studios has the only groomed-for-production back lot in Texas. The back lot offers a historic pioneer cabin that was built in the 1840s, as well as a modern-day cabin constructed with flyaway walls, that is set along the Colorado River frontage. There is also small boat docking available on the creek, behind the cabin. The back lot also offers Spanish moss-covered trees, old and new trees and vegetation, open pastures, rolling hills as well as native wild flowers. Trails of gravel and dirt roads travel along groomed-for-production old and new forests.
