A second company has announced plans to build a new TV and film studio facility in space.
Last week Space Entertainment Enterprise (S.E.E.), a UK-based media company, revealed it is developing SEE-1, described as the world’s ﬁrst content and entertainment studios and multi-purpose arena in space.
Now, Space 11 Corp is working with Voyager Space company Nanoracks to build a free-flying space station that will function as a soundstage in zero gravity.
Space 11 plans to construct and launch a specialised free-flying space station, named S11S, to service film and TV projects as a dedicated platform akin to a live venue / soundstage. The S11S will also include multiple compartments for use as accommodations and sleeping quarters.
Under Space 11 Corp sits Space 11 Studio – a film and television studio focused on high-concept science fiction films and television formats shot in space, involving zero-gravity; and Space 11 City – a film production facility designed to accommodate high-end film and television productions.
The company says it expects S11S to be operational by late 2027.
“Exploring space opportunities has been quite eye-opening,” said Space 11 Corp founder Andrea Iervolino. “We are in discussions with Nanoracks because they are practical and have unmatched experience in taking unique ideas and developing them into real space programmes. Our gradual approach will allow us to explore thrilling in-space media opportunities possible today while also working towards our long-term vision of hosting entertainment events on a customised space station platform dedicated to our viewers.”
Space 11 Corp has already created its first zero-gravity show, Galactic Combat, where MMA fights take place in parabolic flight and zero-gravity outer space.
