Bill A.

"...We had a great experience filming in Maciek's studio. Our project was a day-long interview shoot. The space provided nice natural light throughout the day, and the street noise was low enough to rarely interrupt our interview. Maciek was a very accommodating host. I would absolutely book again..."

Sean J.

"...We absolutely loved working in this studio. The studio has a great white wall for studio photography but we also did film with video in the space. Despite being close to the street, we had little problems with audio. Plus our contact Avi was great with both communication prior to..."

actor voiceover work

I'm an independent filmmaker shooting a short film this Saturday and it needs some voiceover work done and I was hoping to record the actor at your studio on Tuesday. We'd need an engineer to help with the recording. It's a simple film, just one actor with her voiceover.

video shoot for spoken word album

I'm a poet/singer/songwriter. Myself along with fellow poet are looking to shoot a video for our upcoming spoken word album being released next month. We are looking for a set that feels like a modern news studio. We like your space based on the pictures, but wanted to know if that wood cabinet is moveable. It would be perfect to serve as a news desk and we would like to place it in front of the tv so we can use that to run a powerpoint in the background. Let me know if that desk is moveable and if so, we will request to book the space if it is available.

film a pitch for crowdfunding

I was interested in renting your green screen studio to film a pitch video for a crowdfunding project I am working on. My videographer would need professional lighting and I was just curious how many professionals lights you have in your studio? Are they included in the rental? And do you have extra that we can possible rent as well? I am curious because we are going to need about 5 lights for our production. Get back to me when possible! Thank you!
