write, shoot, and edit a short film

I'm the Video Producer for a theatre. I am leading a team in the 48 film project and we would love to utilize your awesome place for the shoot! Not sure if you know anything about this film project but essentially, teams have 48 hours to write, shoot and edit a short film with a given set of required elements unknown to the team until the beginning of the 48 hours (genre, prop, etc..). The shoot would have to this Saturday, between 6pm-10pm if this is at all a possibility.

small project for indie filmmaker

I'm an indie filmmaker and I'm definitely interested in renting this beautiful space for a project I'm working on. It's a very small project, so there will only be, at most, 6 people. However, I'm still firming up the details with the crew, so it may be less. I just have a few questions: what kind of lighting and camera equipment is available with the amenities? Also, is the furniture shown the only furniture available with the space?

film shoot for an office scene

I am interested in using your space this Sunday for a film shoot. It is a short film with a small crew. We wouldn't bring lighting or electrical equipment. Just a camera and possibly ND filters for the window. We're looking to shoot in one of the private offices with a single desk. From the pictures it looked like there were a few of those. Basically it's a scene involving a boss talking with his employee. Would that be available?

I have had my eye on this location forever and finally have the time to try and shoot it.
