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 works with the Gwinnett County Video Production Curriculum, 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.
