Welcome to The Reservoir! On behalf of The Reservoir, I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome you to this creative space. The Reservoir is a thoughtfully designed space built to invoke creativity, flexibility, and collaboration. Our guests are the most important part of our space; be sure to follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thereservoirphilly and Instagram at @thereservoirNJ & @ohcrapitskurt to stay connected to our growing community and to see if any of the sets have been changed. To show some video examples of the space and a full walkthrough of what to expect, here is a 1 minute video showcasing the studio of what it looks like when you will enter -https://www.instagram.com/reel/CiaX0ZMuvqR/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Below please find some information to help when arriving at The Reservoir NJ: Parking There is plenty on-street parking available or in the parking lot. There is a ramp as well. Property Rules and Regulations A full list of property rules and regulations can be found in the lease agreement and also below. Please read through it and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. General Rules • Your booking time is when you will be given access inside. Please do not arrive or pull into our lot any sooner than 15min before your booking time. If you booking starts at lets say 10:00am — do not arrive ANY EARLIER than 9:45am — our site rep arrives at the time of your booking. Do not arrive earlier than your time expecting to start setting up and shoot. If you need more time to set up and breakdown, please factor this in and book more time. * The LED tubes are for rental. They are not for just open use. If you did rent these you can watch a tutorial video here - https://youtu.be/NGqLeHmsS9Q?t=229 * We are also a Podcast studio and if you have selected the podcast area you will have access to ONLY the podcast area. Using the photography section of the studio in addition to the podcast studio is an extra charge. Headphones, microphones and recording device all comes with your booking when you book the podcast room. We do have a TV with an HDMI cable if you need to attached a computer for playback of videos and other things. We do offer videography of your podcast but that is an additional charge found in the add ons sections of Peerspace. * There are Seamless Paper Backdrops. These are included in your hourly booking. We ask that you please take care of them and make sure your shoes or feet are not extremely dirty before stepping on them. * There is a studio light, light dome and stand. This is not part of your hourly booking. There is an addition cost to use it. Please be sure to add it in the add ons sections of Peerspace. * No smoking inside our studio whatsoever (this includes weed and cigarettes) — if you want to smoke, go outside in your car or there is a designated area in the parking lot by the GRANT building. This is a non negotiable. No rolling cigarettes or blunts of any kind in the studio or the buildings bathrooms. If found doing so, your card that you used on Peerspace will be immediately charged a $250 fee for breaking this simple rule. * Any food and drinks brought into the studio must be taken with you when you leave. Do not leave uneaten food and half full drinks in the trashcan or in the room. Failing to comply will result in an addition $25 cleaning fee noted in a review left on peerspace. * You are responsible for leaving the space as you found it! That means taking out all trash / putting back all props if any were moved or using in other spaces. The $25 cleaning fee on the listing is simply our site rep fee that goes to our site rep who will be there on the day of the booking. * No Guns or live weapons of any kind, (prop guns are okay if first shown to our site rep) — Failing to comply is an instant non-negotiable $125 fee. * No Pyro of any kind (unless you have permit or a fire marshal present) — Failing to comply is an instant non-negotiable $250 fee. * No Fake blood / No Squibs / No Color Smoke Bombs — Failing to comply is a $125 fee. * We allow music to be played -- but at a respectable level as there other business operating at this location. NO EXCESSIVELY LOUD MUSIC. * Your rental is based hourly. To avoid an overage, "taillights" must be be within your allotted time. Ex: An 8hr booking from 12pm - 8pm / You must be wrapped and off the property by 8pm to avoid being billed an extra hour. There also may be a booking directly after or before yours so please be courteous to this timeframe because you know you would not be happy if you showed up to your booking and the booking before you exceeded their time and cutting into your time. * We are not responsible for any lost / stolen / damaged equipment during your booking. * If you completely break something of The Reservoir property, you will be required to replace it. * We reserve all rights to take and share behind the scenes photo(s) of whatever shoot is happening on our property, for the promotion of our location. • We are not a sound stage! This is in its purest form, the building is more or less an office building. So there are sometimes other businesses working, phone calls and meetings. We are not a sound stage. Using our studio, you understand the risks of recording audio as we have other companies near us that we cannot control the sounds the make and when they make them. If you need complete silence for your interview or film/documentary, we are not the location for you. There have been countless large companies such as HBO, Showtime, Fender Guitars and many Movie Productions that have came in for just recording interviews and dialog. It is a very quiet space especially for an industrial area. BUT PLEASE BE AWARE there is other businesses operating below our studio and they occasionally do start their trucks,power wash their vehicle,open garage doors and play music. Sometimes 1-2 times a day. It’s not extremely loud but you do hear it. Please be aware that this may happen during your interview. If you do need complete silence without possible interruptions the entire booking time, our space may not be for you. I’d say it’s quiet about 95 % of the time. And if there is noise from elsewhere it lasts for a few minutes. These locations are not partners or associated with the reservoir Philly. They are entirely separate entities and I do not have the right to control what they do with their business or the sound they make. So this is a heads up about the rarely occasional noise from downstairs. There is also the HVAC System which may play a small part as well. We can control this for you to turn it off for you via wireless control. Otherwise the space is quiet. You will not be refunded if you did not read this prior to booking. By booking this space you agree and understand that there will be the risk and chance of occasional sounds that I have mentioned above. Sets and items included in your base hourly booking: Pink Furry Wall Sticker Bomb Wall Blue School Lockers Vinyl Record Wall Plant Wall Seamless Paper Backdrops Podcast studio (if you booked only the podcast studio) Photography studio (of you booked only the photography studio) Sets and items NOT included in your hourly booking: Using both the Podcast studio and the Photography studio. Using both is an additional charge. LED Tubes Studio Light, Dome and stand Artificial Sunset Lamp Smoke Aeresol Cans Micro SD card for Podcast Photographer Videographer Thank you again for entrusting The Reservoir with your most important creative needs.

ReservoirNJ was very responsive to our communication. They allowed us time and space to be creative. All the equipment was in working order and we were free to use it as we liked. Already booked for another session!
Marissa A. booked a photoshoot for 15 people
Booked this place on a whim looking to get a variety of content for a few models, great space very user friendly, a bit small so be careful about how many people you bring, it comfortably fit 5 of us though! Would definitely book again 10/10 Kurt was a very reliable host!
