1. Facility Care
We want you to feel safe and comfortable in our studio spaces and we encourage freedom of expression in all its forms. That said, we also expect you and your group to respect and treat the facility with care. All areas should be left the way you found them, clean and ready for the next use (if the facility was not prepared for you, please contact your booking agent immediately). Please put back any items used, replace furniture or set pieces to their original location, sweep the studio floor and vacuum any carpeted areas if applicable. Empty all trash in the dumpsters to the front or rear of the building. Excessive cleaning will result in a fee assessment.
2. Studio Property
Studio Property cannot be borrowed for any length of time at the studio or otherwise without permission. Studio property that is noted as ‘rentable’ may only be rented and/or used if written or verbal authorization is obtained prior to use. Double check that you have obtained permission from an authorized representative before use.
3. Conference Rooms
The conference rooms can be used for many purposes. If you need help with the monitor or other electronics, please ask.
The dry erase boards will typically be erased daily unless otherwise requested.
In the event of a spill or other accident, please inform the studio manager immediately so the situation can be assessed/addressed, or you may be assessed additional cleaning or damage fees.
4. Green Room/Lounge Areas (if applicable)
The lounges come equipped with a 65" 4k TV, a 100" drop down HD projector, and full access to the break room area. The TV can be tethered to a camera on the shooting floor and both the projector and TV can be accessed via wall ports. There are 4 ethernet ports on the wall for direct connections. Please ask staff for assistance with any of the devices or appliances.
5. Sound Stage/Cycloramas
The sound stages are our primary event, film, and photography shooting space and contain the cycloramas. If you have not booked access to them, please refrain from entering the areas without permission. The Cycloramas can be easily damaged; the curves are not load-bearing and any small weight or pressure can easily crack the seams or put a hole through the cove. Any damage to the cycloramas will result in a damage assessment. If the cycloramas must be repainted after your use fees will be assessed as follows: $75-$250 floor only, $250-$1500 full repaint. If you would like your cyclorama painted a custom color the fee is $500-$1500 plus paint cost. The Green Screen cyclorama may not be painted a different color.
If you need assistance with any equipment, please inform your agent or the studio manager. You are responsible for your use of our equipment, and we cannot be held liable for any damages or loss resulting from your use, accidental or otherwise. Any violation of the rules or other misconduct will result in the immediate revocation of facility privileges, is grounds for removal, and may constitute a forfeiture of your deposit.
Please respect our staff. If we have provided you with a grip, PA or a AV tech, do not abuse the privilege. We appreciate your patronage and will treat your business and associates with courtesy and respect. We expect the same of you and your guests. If management feels misconduct or abuse is taking place, or the tech/grip/PA informs management of such, you may be penalized, ejected and/or banned from the premises.
8. Smoking, drinking & other substances
We do not allow smoking inside the premises except under the following conditions:
a) Fog machines.
b) Smoking scenes using non-tobacco/non-cannabis based products. Additional fees apply.
c) We allow alcohol on premises with prior approval. An ABC licensed professional must be engaged to distribute any alcohol, whether sold or freely given away. You are responsible for ensuring the legal age of those participating. We will have appropriate action taken immediately if we find minors consuming on premises. You may not sell alcohol in any way, including selling “drink tickets” or plastic cups without a catering license and event permit. Locations that already have a dedicated liquor license will require all alcohol sales/distribution to be handled by on-site staff.
9. Building Use
You are responsible for ensuring all members of your group have vacated the premises upon the termination of your booking. As applicable, if a key is provided, the person responsible for the booking is responsible for ensuring the facility is locked and the key is returned as agreed in writing.
Gambling of any kind is not allowed on premises. You may film, photograph, record, or in any other way portray gambling for the purposes of your production, but you may not host any type of gambling, nor host an event with any type of gambling or any game of chance in which money changes hands.
We take the protection of minors seriously. The physical and mental safety of minors present at the facility is paramount. Labor and sexual exploitation will not be tolerated in any way and will be immediately reported to local authorities.

Discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated. We take the fair and equitable treatment of all guests and patrons very seriously and seek to create and promote a safe and inclusive environment at all times. If you feel you have been treated unfairly or are aware of unfair, discriminatory, or abusive behavior taking place on our premises, please contact the studio manager or another staff member immediately. Please also immediately report any observed physical abuse, health emergency or un-scheduled violence to local authorities. (unscheduled violence is any suspect violent behavior not associated with an active event, film or photo shoot. While some productions may include mock violence and sometimes real violence for various professional and commercial purposes, all instances will be well documented and announced.)
