This brand new raw space is available for photoshoots, video shoots and films alike. The building dates back to the 1800s, where it was originally a Faber pencil factory. It has been completely renovated from the inside-out. AMENITIES/TRANSPORTATION: The space features spacious 10.5' ceilings, conveniently available are large Men's and Women's bathrooms across the hallway from our studio, a large garment rack for wardrobe changes, a beautiful exposed brick wall, and a south-facing view of lower Manhattan & Williamsburg. New passenger elevators with freight capacity available as well. We are located one block from Transmitter Park with gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline, 2 blocks from the East River Ferry and 2 blocks from the Greenpoint Station on the G Train. BACKDROPS: Included in your rental fee, we offer a simple setup with a 10" backdrop in White, Black or Green. The first color is included in your rental, but there is a $15 fee for any additional color change/setup. LIGHTING: 2 x Aputure Amaran AL528S LED lights [High color rendering LEDs (Ra≥95) / 5000lux/3ft; 1400lux/6ft; 620lux/10ft], and two 2-bank barn door light panels. You are, however, welcome to bring your own reflectors, lighting equipment, etc, as the space has 24 outlets for all your powering needs.
Most importantly, please be on time. Your rental schedule includes your setup and breakdown time. This is a No Smoking, No Pets building. Space is not equipped with kitchenette/refrigerator. Any props, packaging or materials brought in for the shoot, must be disposed of by you and/or your production team. Otherwise, you can arrange for it to be picked up by a private trash removal company such as 1-800-Got-Junk. Thanks!
Perfect space! The backdrop was set up and the lighting equipment was provided and ready to use as soon as we got there. Ken was amazing, looking forward to using studio space through him again in the future. Overall, couldn’t have asked for a better experience! THANK YOU KEN!
Amazing and very accomodating studio. Tons of tools, modifiers and equipment to work with. Ken is a very helpful and kind individual. Would rent again without hesitation. Thanks, Ken!
Superlative space and host - can’t say enough good things. I’ve booked the Spanish Fly Studios twice, once for a green screen video shoot and once for voice over work - each time the facilities were top notch and we were made to feel like family. I will probably only exclusively use Ken’s spaces in the future :)
As the photographer I would like to say this location was perfect. Super big. Studio itself is amazing and host was nice. AC unit kept it nice and cool. I do look forward to working at this location again in the future. Five stars!
Photos in the listing do not do it justice, the space is well kept and very large. The host was very helpful. I had photoshoot there but the space can be used for much more than that and also can be utilized as a recording studio! highly recommend this place!
Ken, was a phenomenal host. Met me at the door too! Was extremely thorough and outgoing. He detailed all of the amenities and was quick to change the background during the shoot. Went a little over with breaking down, but Ken was chill about it. Will definitely book again with Spanish Fly Media!
One of my favorite locations! Great Space !! GREAT HOST !!! Amazing amenities!! I would Highly recommend , I certainly will be booking this location again.
