One of the most exciting lofts in Los Angeles, our home photography studio is just 2 miles from Venice Beach and has a modern style that is perfect for your next film production or photoshoot. Beat the traffic and view our new virtual video tour online at https://youtu.be/viwYoPB6Sss I am a commercial photographer by trade and I designed our loft (which doubles as my photography studio) to be easily customizable to fit a variety of purposes. Our decor is a perfect fusion of world travel themed décor and bleeding edge smarthome technology, via Amazon's Alexa. Everything from the vertical blinds to the television, projector, dozens of lights and the music are controlled with simple voice commands. It’s straight out of a science fiction movie! Our studio is a very spacious 2300 square feet, with beautiful polished concrete floors and several hundred feet of private outdoor patio space, with tall bamboo plants and outdoor patio furniture. Each room has custom lighting and is tastefully decorated with lightweight, beautiful contemporary furniture that is easy to restyle (or hide completely) within minutes. The main downstairs area is a massive open layout with 16 foot high walls and floor-to-ceiling windows that allows for easy lighting setup. The afternoon natural light is positively angelic in every room and, speaking as a photographer myself, photoshoots are an absolute joy here. There is a large home office with sliding frosted glass doors that works remarkably well for a makeup room and wardrobe changing area. Several commercial productions and short films have even utilized the office as a green room for talent. The kitchen is an open concept, modern kitchen with a rolling kitchen island that can be easily pushed out of the way to make additional room. Our kitchen has been used for several Internet cooking shows, as well as commercial lifestyle projects. Our large private patio has amazing 25’ tall bamboo plants and patio furniture, perfect for portrait or fashion photography. The patio wraps around our entire loft, which makes it an ideal staging area. Every room in our loft may be lit from outside via the patio. The upstairs lounge has a 4K HD projector with a 100” motorized projection screen, which is wonderful for hosting private screenings. Just say “Alexa, turn on the projector”. There is also a gorgeous rattan daybed with a Moroccan themed cushion, Indoor plants and foliage and modular sofa pieces that may be reconfigured to create chairs, couches, loveseats or sectionals. The master bedroom is large enough for multiple crew members, talent and lighting. In the afternoons, it is bathed in a romantic, soft bright natural light and is decorated with a unique low profile platform bed and custom smart lighting. Productions: Our studio is a popular spot for still and video photographers and has many options for shooting. I am a commercial photographer by trade and my wife is a makeup artist, so we know what looks good on camera and designed our space with pictures and video in mind. We have two cats: Meowchelle Obama' and 'Hilary Linton'. They are the sweetest kitties you will ever meet, but we will make sure they stay in a separate room while you're renting :) We also offer the following optional amenities at no charge - Up to 40 white fold up chairs - Five 8-foot white banquet tables - 24 x 36" Double-sided dry erase whiteboard - 65” HDTV on a rolling stand - Clothing steamer - Iron and ironing board - Full kitchen - 4K projector and screen
WELCOME TO F-SEQUENCE STUDIO! Welcome to F-Sequence Studio, one of the most unique and exciting spaces in Los Angeles. Our condominium is a perfect fusion of artistic flair and bleeding edge technology. The following is our house rules and must-have smarthome commands. At least one of us will remain on-site during rentals to assist you with questions or concerns, but we do our best to stay out of your way and give you space until we are needed. Deacon: homeowner and host. This loft condo is my home and place of business. Maria: Location coordinator and head security. This is the person in charge of rentals. STUDIO RENTAL RULES - Our building is quiet live/work community and has a zero tolerance for noise disturbances such as loud music, partying, screaming, stomping on the stairs/railings, etc. To avoid interruption of your rental, please be respectful of our home and our neighbors. No DJs, or outside speakers and amps are allowed. - For your protection and for ours, there are 12 security cameras recording video and audio to cloud servers. These are actively monitored.

If a camera plug or wire is interfering with your production, come speak to one of us and we can relocate it. There are no cameras in the restrooms and we recommend using them for changing. PARKING: Please note that we will obtain guest street parking permits for you, based on your total number of guests at the time of your booking.

These guest permits will be delivered to you electronically and must be printed out and displayed on your guests’ vehicles. Production grip trucks must obtain proper Film LA permits to park on the street. - Non-human animals (dogs, cats, birds, etc) are not allowed without prior permission. This includes service animals. I have severe allergies to fur bearing animals and cannot have them in my home for health reasons.

The common areas of the building (courtyard, pool, gym, etc) may not be used for filming, staging, storing equipment or congregating. - Good communication and cooperation is essential for the success of your rental. You are responsible for the conduct of your guests. Disrespectful comments, arguing about rules and hard drug use will immediately end your rental. Likewise, if we feel that our safety is at risk, or that a renter is being uncooperative, then we will end the rental. - We require a detailed call sheet for all film/photo productions, which should include a list of talent and crew, as well as which areas are being used at roughly which times. This helps us to understand your needs and make accommodations for your production (such as where to put our two cats, removing our personal items, etc). - Your rental start time is your arrival time and your end time is your departure time. Setup and breakdown times are included in your rental, with no free overtime given for early arrivals or late departures.
