Home in Manayunk
Sq. Ft. Creative Studio
located in your friendly Philadelphia neighborhood.
Manayunk’s often called the “Secret Gem of Philadelphia.” No, we didn’t make that up and no, we’re not biased (yes we are). When you visit MNYK Studios, you’re part of the Manayunk family. Stroll down Main Street to grab a bite and do some shopping in between sessions.
A talented team of outside-the-box
videographers, photographers, audio engineers + mixers, producers, and more.
Here when you need us to add a little MNYK magic.
Bill is a professional photographer and videographer with experience in portraits, weddings, live events, and more.
Abad specializes in visual effects and motion control using his Steadicam, Cinebot, probe lens, and more. His past experience includes NFL Skycam operator and 30′ camera crane owner/operator for large scale concerts and major events.
Session Guitarist + Audio Engineer
Matt is a performer and session guitarist with 10 years of professional experience. He performs, writes, and records regularly with his band Rad and Kell.
Kristen is a music journalist, songwriter, and Third Eye Blind enthusiast—and she’s also the one you’ll be talking to most (so feel free to drop a line about warm, shimmery guitar leads and she’ll be your best friend).
Writer + Director
If there is one way to describe Terry, it would be as this: a writer/director (though he’s also a producer, shooter, editor, and grip). He spends most of his days writing scripts and story outlines for clients and it’s the part he truly enjoys the most.
Dan is an Audio Engineer, Producer, and Microphone Designer that has been working in Philadelphia studios for over 10 years. With attention to detail and experience working in all genres of music, he has helped hundreds of artists find their sound.
TAKE A LOOK
Do you have parking?
We’re located on Station Street where you can find free parking right outside the studio doors (perfect for loading in and out), as well as connecting streets. If Station is full, try Jamestown, Pensdale, and Shurs. If you would rather park in a lot, Venice Island is a 2-minute walk from the studio (cost varies depending on stay).
What are your rates?
Do you accept walk-ins?
We’re always down to hang out (there’s a reason we have a lounge with refreshments)! But we can’t promise your desired space will be available for you at any given time. We require a 48-hour advance booking notice so we can ensure you have the time and space to create your project. But if you need a session ASAP, please give us a call and we’ll see what we can do!
Can I work at MNYK Studios?
We’re stoked you want to join us! We’re currently looking for part-time employees to help us out around the studio: fill out this form if you’re interested.
What are your hours?
We operate all hours! We do request that you book a session and give us a heads up at least 48-hours in advance. We offer discounted rates for sessions 12 AM – 8 AM and on weekends.
How and where can I book a session?
Do you offer mastering services?
If you truly want to use MNYK Studios to master audio, you can. However, our studio was not designed and built for mastering acoustics. We have a list of incredible mastering engineers and studios we can send you to.
