Ares Studios is the first fan owned film studio.  Founded by Alec Peters, the creator of the ground breaking Star Trek fan film Prelude to Axanar, Ares Studios produces video content for fans of Star Trek and Sci-Fi, including weekly YouTube shows.

The physical studio, located near Atlanta, Georgia - and home to the amazing USS Ares bridge set - is open to all Sci-Fi and genre fans to utilize in their fan films. Ares Studios has also partnered with Gwinnett County High Schools in support of their Academy Program, allowing video production students to work in the studio and film on our sets.

In the past, Ares Studios was where Axanar Productions shot the amazing Vulcan Scene, which was the first scene filmed for the full length Axanar.  You can see that scene here:


We don't just have an amazing bridge set:



You want to film the other guys?  We have a practical Captain's Chair and bridge consoles with a 3D digital bridge:



And Captain's Quarters:





And a corridor!

Plus make-up and wardrobe rooms.

Please support us as we deliver great content every week and help us make the Sci Fi you want to see!
