Introducing Studio Tours!

For the first time, we’ve teamed up with three of Chicago’s top studios to open their doors to the Half Rez community. At each studio, you’ll get to meet the people behind the work. They’ll show you around their spaces, talk about their process, and explain how they make the magic happen.

Flavor is a collective of designers and visual artists who delight in experimentation and thrive on collaboration. We create commercial, interactive, live action, VFX and finishing work, always keeping our clients goals in clear view. Blending a variety of design techniques, our key ingredient is the creative, which is the centerpiece of everything we serve up.

Flavor is a part of Cutters Studios, an international creative company that provides top-tier production, post-production and creative development services for causes, brands, studios, networks and agencies. We'll follow a single project through our integrated workflow as it moves through the entire process from beginning to end.

Fuelled by a relentless curiosity we continue to look to the future, carving out new spaces, screens and media through which to tell stories.

All this and more for $99!

To give you the best experience, we’re keeping Studio Tours small, with only 30 tickets available. That means more time for you to explore, more chances to ask questions, and more opportunities to make connections.

We’ve also taken care of all the practical details for you. Just meet us at the first studio, and we’ll take you to lunch and provide a private trolley to each of our stops. When we’re done, we’ll take you to Wicker Park, so you’ll be among the first to enter Half Rez when the doors open. We think this adds up to an amazing experience, and we’d love to have you join us.
