Actual film studio bookings

short tease in a studio space

I'm looking for a studio space to rent for the 12th from 6PM to 11PM. We would like to use your space to shoot a short tease for our team's upcoming season. We have no special circumstances and would be a crew of ten. We are looking to get some great shots of the team under the iconic LEDs and together in the studio. Is the space available for the 12th? How much would the rate be for our shoot, if we were to use it for 5 hours? Is it possible to work around the 8 hour minimum?

film shoot in a studio

I am interested about booking your studio for a shoot I have on the 15th. I am shooting with film and curious about the types of continuous lighting you have? What type of lights/model are they exactly?

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.

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.
