Our Story

In January of 2012, Michael Casentini, founded “The Network Studios” out of his 1 bedroom apartment in Los Angeles, California.

Over time, he continued to improve the studio environment moving from his master bedroom to a 1500 square foot facility that has 3 separate studio rooms that are conditioned for sound, multi-cam presentations, chroma key capacity and live streaming video options. Today, The Network Studios, produce on a regular basis; Podcasts, VODcasts and Voiceover recordings that have serviced hundreds of customers around the country and the world.
