FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
FROM PROPOSALS TO MARRIAGE, WE ARE WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
HOW DID STUDIO 27 GET IT’S NAME?
We felt a special studio deserved a meaningful name. The “27” is a dedication to Franco’s Mom, Anella, who passed way too early in life due to complications from asthma. Her birthday was the 27th of January. Anella was the inspiration and the strength behind Franco’s drive to open his own studio. Franco and Steve also agreed that a portion of each contract will be donated to the AAFA (Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America).
