Film and Photo

Film recording, sound and photography can all be completed in our well-equipped studios. Or we can pack up our cameras and capture footage and photographs at a location of your choosing.


Our purpose built photography studios offer everything you need for a productive, enjoyable photo shoot. We can offer a blackout studio, natural light studio, and just about every type of lighting condition in between. You’re welcome to use your own crew and equipment, or put your project in our capable hands and we’ll take care of it from beginning to end.


Our high production values are reflected in the substantial investment we have made in leading recording technology and a new SSL desk. COTYSO studios offer four floors of space dedicated to film, television, audio recording, photography and media tuition. This modern, bright space is well-equipped and comfortable to work in, providing a pleasurable and productive working experience.


Artists and repertoire (A&R) is the division of a record label or music publishing company that is responsible for talent scouting and overseeing the artistic development of recording artists and/or songwriters. It also acts as a liaison between artists and the record label or publishing company; every activity involving artists to the point of album release is generally considered under the purview of, and responsibility of, A&R.
