Andrew K. booked a production for 5 people
Very useful space for our needs which was to serve as a location for a filmed interview. There was minimal furniture, but just enough of it to aid in creating a nice backdrop. I was also quiet. Shalonda was great to work with and went above and beyond by sourcing some lights for our traveling crew.
