Garage Media Center is for photo and video shoots

BROCKTON — Tucked away in the SoundLab at 60 Skinner St. is a haven for content creators of all areas to roam free and explore their creative visions.

Nicole da Silva, the manager of The Garage Media Center, wants creators to have a blank canvas and add their pizzazz to the space.

When you step Inside the building, white walls and floors are met with high industrial ceilings.

The main goal of the establishment is to give Brockton residents a place that will encourage their growth.

“Brockton has so much creativity it’s overwhelming, but we don’t have the spaces for it,” da Silva said.

Barbatt Jocelyn, a Brockton resident and manager of the recording studio at the SoundLab, understands the difficulty teenagers face in Brockton when it comes to extracurricular activities.

“It’s honestly disappointing that more money is spent on gentrification than the youth, that will ultimately be the future of the city,” Jocelyn said.

Director Czarr Freeman goes over a shot with camera operator Chris Ruiz during a video shoot at the Garage Media Center at the SoundLab in Brockton during the center's open house on Sunday, Aug. 28, 2022.

“The lack of opportunity for the people raised in Brockton is the exact reason why some feel like it’s a place they need to escape from. So that’s why we try our best to create those opportunities,” Jocelyn said.

The center offers several services to utilize for a fee, from the podcasting room, a cyclorama wall for music videos, and a seamless wall for photoshoots.
