“The Chosen” is an American historical drama television series created, directed, and co-written by American filmmaker Dallas Jenkins. It is the first multi-season series about the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. Season One was filmed over 60 days in Weatherford, Texas, and used the existing Capernaum Village, which offers film set rental and live experiences for tourists, to recreate the historical Capernaum. Season Two moved filming to Utah’s version of ancient Israel in Goshen, Utah County. With the success of season one and two, “The Chosen” needed to expand quickly and looked to build a stand-alone sound stage and supporting production complex at the Midlothian, Texas site. Convention construction timelines were not an option. The Chosen reached out to Pacifica Ventures a world leader in sound stage development to consider alternatives.
How Sprung Delivered
Sprung, in alliance with Pacifica Ventures and CRC Construction Group, teamed up to design and construct a 22,000 sq ft state-of-the-art sound stage complete with a 40’ independent lighting grid, and 9000 square feet of offices. The unique design of the wall system of the Sprung structure includes a four-layer sound attenuation system with a minimum STC rating of 48. In addition to the sound stage, a number of Sprung support facilities were constructed to include mill space, wardrobe, and props as well as lighting and grip. The entire facility was constructed in just six months.
