Logistics: The Space is approximately 1300 Sqft with natural lighting available as well as ceiling lights. High ceilings, roll up gate, and ground level access allow for easy entrance in and out of the studio, as well as easy unloading and loading of equipment. The space is surrounded by a private, gated parking lot which can accommodate approximately 10 cars maximum. We can easily accommodate two to three automobiles inside the space. The space has two adjacent bathrooms and can be blacked out for simulated night time shoots. There are multiple dedicated 220v lines in the space which means an ample source of power for any energy intensive video equipment. The space includes small card tables and approx. 40 plastic chairs for use if necessary, we also have two ladders and adjustable ceiling lights which can be used to increase vertical clearance or change the lighting of the shoot. Overview: We have had numerous previous film and photo shoots in our space, the most successful of which have brought in their own equipment to keep costs low. There are numerous prop-houses near our venue which offer competitively priced prop and equipment rentals. Photographers will benefit from our free white / green backgrounds and hanging florescent lights which have been used for photo shoots recently with much success. The neighborhood surrounding our space is mostly industrial which means that sound is not an issue, even late into the night, however a two minute drive will place you in the middle of a residential area with numerous food establishments and restaurants. We are very close to Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, and adjacent to North Hollywood which situates us in a perfect location with access to tons of film and photo resources. About us: We are a family run business and aside from managing this studio space we also design and manufacture apparel, costumes, and uniforms. Our factory is adjacent to the studio, so if you need any custom wardrobe for your next shoot, just let us know! *Note about usage times* Our studio is available for rent at any time during the day, however, between the hours 9am-5pm on Monday - Friday we will be working through our other business which will create noise. If your production requires silence please take these hours into account. In the past, some film productions have booked us starting at 3pm, allowing two hours for setup, and have begun filming after our other operations end.
We require that the space be returned to us in the same manner that it was provided to the guests i.e cleanup any and all spills or residue from your usage. We allow food and beverages, including alcohol, to be consumed in our space, however, they must be taken out with the guest and cleaned up in accordance with our cleanup policy. Additionally, furniture can only be moved upon request, and access to amenities must be decided upon before use.
Rick and his wife Pam are an amazing couple! Very hospitable! I love this location! They gave us free roam of the property to do whatever we wanted for our film. Rick even made a cameo! We will be back for a second day soon!
Rick is super accommodating and it goes a long way. He definitely makes me feel at home and I can feel that he truly believes in my project. He is all for making sure we get the best out of the time and space provided.
