Chronicle Cinema Moves into Downtown Fenley Office Building; Builds Movie Viewing Theatre, State-of-the-Art Post Production Facility, & Corporate Offices
Zach Meiners and team continue work on feature-length films while expanding focus into commercial work
Louisville, KY – One of Louisville's premiere filmmaking companies, owned by filmmaker Zach Meiners, has moved into Class A 5,000 sq. ft. office space in the downtown Fenley Office Building. Located at 614 W. Main Street, the Chronicle Cinema space includes offices and meeting rooms, a post-production space, studio and tiered screening room/movie theatre.
"Louisville has become a hub for incredible filmmaking and thus it’s exciting for us to be able to locate our new office right in the heart of where business and art intersect,” said Meiners. "Our state-of-the-art studio, equipment and most important screening room, is unlike anything in our area. Having this screening room, that has the look and feel of a small movie theatre, definitely helps put us on top of the game in our region.”
Chronicle Cinema initially started as a filmmaking studio, with its acclaimed feature-length film in 2015 titled “I Am Potential.” The movie was based on life of world-acclaimed musician and speaker, Patrick Henry Hughes. Since then, Chronicle Cinema has taken on commercial work for brands including AT&T, Zig Zag, Loctite, & Louisville Slugger. Zach Meiners and his team of 3 full-time employees and over 60 contractors now produce a variety of projects for companies around the U.S. using filmmaking, animation, and virtual reality.
David Fenley, President of Fenley Real Estate, got to know Zach during a project that they were working on for Fenley’s UpStartU non-profit. He says of Zach, “I knew immediately that he was incredibly talented and have been thrilled to be able to work with him and his team to provide them the space to create amazing work. I look forward to watching them grow as a company and artists in the coming years.”
Meiners also highlights the State of Kentucky’s film credit incentive program for helping keep his company within the State. “Kentucky has done a great job of making it possible for productions to be filmed right here at home,” explains Meiners. “Because of the benefits, including refundable income tax credits of up to 35%, it made it economical to stay in Louisville, although we work with clients all over the U.S.”
