The three story high, 50 by 160 Back Lot was created and designed by noted production designer Michael Helmy as a flexible, movable, multi-use, seaworthy floating location site with an endless array of physical and digital backgrounds for film, television, music video and commercial productions. Other uses include special events, photo shoots, private parties, fund raisers and whatever else one's imagination desires.
