Great space and Ken was an incredible host. The photos don't do it justice, it's much more spacious than it appears. We got the all the footage we needed plus some. There's also a music studio inside which Ken let us film a few parts of the video in and it looked fantastic. Overall incredible studio, great pricing and great host. Will be booking again in the near future.
I rented this space for a maternity photo shoot and it exceeded my expectations. Ken was an amazing host, very attentive and helpful. It was such a pleasure meeting him. The space was bigger than I expected, with a beautiful brick wall and tons of natural lighting. The pictures simple do not do this space justice, I will definitely be booking this space again!
Ken was very accommodating. He offered lighting and other additional options. Extremely reasonable cost with decent size. I would recommend this place to others.
Ken was an amazing guy. He was very helpful, and he stuck around the whole time. He made his equipment easily available, shared his input, and went beyond what I expected.
