Vanessa S. booked a video shoot for 24 people
Great communication with the host. He was very accommodating. I went the day before to location scout and it was great to discuss the furniture and decor in the home. We ended up using a stunning chair and painting in this home for our production shoot. The large doorways and high ceilings make this property an easy yes for productions. I covered the floors with moving blankets and drop cloths to protect the floor from our equipment and would recommend other productions do the same so this piece of history can be preserved. We would definitely shoot at this location again.
