In the heart of Norristown, on Lafayette Street, is a former warehouse that has been reborn as Blu Bear Studios, a state-of-the-art film production space. The man behind this transformation is self-proclaimed movie buff and serial entrepreneur, Matt Tranguch, writes Rachel Ravina for The Times Herald.  

Harrisburg-based Tranguch is no stranger to the entertainment scene. By 2016, he already launched Paperboy Media Group and ThirdEye Creative Productions

Seeking a change of scenery, Tranguch and his partner, Matthew Dunstan, began scouting for a new space. Their search led them to a former factory in Norristown. 

Despite delays from Hurricane Ida in 2021, they purchased the building and embarked on the 18-month renovation journey. 

Blu Bear Studios officially opened its doors on January 1. Visitors to the 8,000 square-foot-building are greeted by halls adorned with movie posters of popular 1980s classics.  

The studio’s standout feature is its Cyclorama room, equipped with infinity walls that create a 180-degree effect.  

Seven employees from Paperboy Media Group have set up shop in some of its office spaces. The studio has also hosted creative and production agencies and even filmed a commercial for furniture giant, Raymour & Flanagan
