Green Screen Institute sets Co-Working Lab grand opening in Nevada County

Several of the GSI Co-Working Lab’s pricing plans will include access to facilities designed for digital media creators, as well as conference rooms, training and videoconferencing facilities, kitchen area and a screening room.

The Green Screen Institute ("GSI") today announced that July 18 will mark the grand opening of its Co-Working Lab.

Emulating the pricing tiers of popular collaborative workspaces like WeWork, GSI also announced several monthly membership options:

• $25 basic membership for one-work day per month;

• Private office spaces with memberships beginning at $500 per month.

Jon Gregory, managing partner of the Green Screen Institute, noted that the Co-Working Lab's membership options cost less than half of similar spaces in the San Francisco Bay Area.

"For established companies and startups interested in digital media, and with a special concentration on the emerging fields of virtual reality and augmented reality, we think our shared space represents a tremendous economic deal," Gregory said. "Our co-working tenants and drop-in members will have the opportunity to meet and potentially collaborate with our three-month summer accelerator class, as well as each other."

Companies interested in securing office or desk space at GSI are encouraged to contact Gregory (530) 518-5733 or jon@greenscreeninstitute.com. Several of the GSI Co-Working Lab's pricing plans will include access to facilities designed for digital media creators, as well as conference rooms, training and videoconferencing facilities, kitchen area and a screening room.

"GSI's Co-Working Lab is a great opportunity for our community's accomplished engineering workforce to immerse themselves in these new digital media technologies," said Dan Castles, the CEO of Nevada City-based Telestream, a leading software and hardware provider of video capture and distribution solutions.

Castles is a member of the GSI's 20-person advisory board, which includes the world's most active virtual reality and augmented reality venture capitalists, plus executives from leading accelerators, VR hardware platform manufacturers, and media companies.

The Green Screen Institute's facilities are located in a 27,000 square foot building at 104 New Mohawk Road in Nevada City.

Gregory also noted that the opening follows the 2016 California Worldfest Music Festival on July 14-17 being held in Grass Valley. Julie Baker, executive director of the Center for the Arts which hosts California Worldfest, will be working with GSI to help create a VIP experience for select members of the Green Screen Institute.

Baker, who is also a member of the GSI Advisory Board, added, "the Green Screen Institute is all about collaboration between the arts and engineering, and we are excited to help kick-off the grand opening of the GSI facility."
