The space worked very well for our needs. We actually ended up spending a lot of time in the raw shared space. Much of that space is unheated, so the studio served as the central meeting point, warmup spot and good location for wardrobe change with hair/makeup adjustments. Working with the team was also very easy and I appreciated the support to show me around before the shoot. Everything worked well and we will likely use the space again for future shoots.
Our dance company of about 50 dancers used the space to shoot a video for our social media channel and the space worked out great for this. We were able to use the many different parts of the Raw warehouse space to capture the shots we needed. Jimmy was great in letting us use some lighting they had in the studio to light some of our shots. All and all the space was great for what we wanted to accomplish.
This space was perfect for the music video we produced. Super raw and open. Which is exactly what we needed. Jaime and his assistant were great and gave us full reign to do with the space what we needed. Would highly recommend for film shoots in the future.
I loved the studio! The space was clean and very welcoming. We took full advantage of the extra 12,000 sq ft shared space. I highly suggest you do too! I was a bit late and the host called me to make sure I was okay and that I was still on my way. I will definitely be booking again!
