I love the rental spot ... It’s always well maintained and clean. The bathrooms and kitchen area are clean. Lots of space to shoot a film and do one on one interviews. As well as, there’s lots of space for equipment too! There’s plenty of street and building back yard parking. I highly recommend this place to film. Have Fun, Anike Bay
Hasan was awesome... The space was clean & very professional. He also went out of his way to help 1 of my clients after hours. Which I really appreciated. I would definitely be using his space again & I would highly recommend it.
