Toast Partners with Machine Gum in Toronto

Following its strong growth over the past two years, Toast Studio has partnered with production company Machine Gum Productions in Toronto.

The partnership aims to enable Toast to better serve its Toronto clients through Machine Gum’s facilities and studio.

“Machine Gum’s management team has extensive experience in television and video production for digital platforms. Their knowledge of the Toronto crews and market ensures increased production quality and agility in the Queen City,” says Alexandre Gravel, founding partner of Toast Studio.

The 2,500 ft2 studio, located on Carlaw Avenue in the Studio District, has a fully-equipped sound and image control room that allows for the production of multi-camera content that can be broadcast on digital platforms or television.

Machine Gum’s production teams also have extensive experience in filming factual content and documentaries throughout Ontario and the rest of Canada.

“This partnership with Toast enables us to expand our scope and service offer to brands and advertisers here in Toronto. Toast’s capabilities in content strategy and deployment are fully compatible with our expertise,” adds David Baeta, executive producer at Machine Gum Productions.

Toronto productions will soon be announced as a result of this new partnership between the two companies.
