COVID-19 update - we currently remain operational


SUNSTUDIOS is committed to supporting the industry during this difficult and uncertain time.

We currently remain fully operational in compliance with recent Government advice. While we are permitted to continue operations from our Sydney and Melbourne locations, the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and customers continues to be our highest priority.

We are doing everything we can to implement measures that will protect you amidst this unprecedented global situation, should you be required to continue to use our services.

In addition to the measures announced last week, we’d like to share the further measures we have implemented for your health, safety and peace-of-mind, including:

  • Receiving regular updates from Canon Australia’s Business Continuity Team in order to maintain best practice.
  • Reducing the number of onsite employees in order to meet social distancing requirements.
  • Our Sydney in-house catering service Cooked For You By Nat has transitioned to supplying only covered, individual, takeaway portions for her catering service and is happy to work with clients to meet their specific needs.
  • All café tables have been removed as we transition to takeaway-only.
  • Studio 4 and Studio 6 are permitted for shoots with crews of 6 or less only.
  • Studio 2, 3 and 7 can accommodate small to large shoots up to 30 pax. 


Sydney Studio sizes:

Studio 2 - 260 sqm  
Studio 3 - 174 sqm  
Studio 4 - 135 sqm  
Studio 6 - 150 sqm  
Studio 7 - 257 sqm 

  • Studio 2, 3 and 7 have direct car park access, allowing private, contactless access.

  • Equipment, backdrops and goods will be placed in studios and disinfected with alcohol-based wipes the night prior to each shoot to keep human contact to a minimum.

Melbourne studio sizes:

  • Equipment, backdrops and goods will be placed in studios and disinfected with alcohol-based wipes the night prior to each shoot to keep human contact to a minimum.

What’s next?
We are keeping a close eye on government advice. You can be confident that we will continue to update our approach based on the most up-to-date recommendations. As the situation evolves, we will too. 

We understand this week has been hugely confronting for creative industries with sudden cancelled jobs, self-isolation, and much uncertainty about the future. We are sharing four small ways to keep your community and inspiration while keeping a safe distance to flatten the curve, here. We’re going to get through this together.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Many thanks,
