short film shoot

very interested in filming in it for a short film. It would be for a half day with a small skeleton crew. Do you allow filming in your space? And if so, would you be open to having us come talk a look at this space early this week.

filming a TV series

My team are filming a series where we investigate phenomena caught on camera to find out 'the truth'. We are looking for a space to film an interview with one of our contributors on Sunday. This would be low impact - one Director, one Camera Op, one contributor and one camera, plus a handful of lights. This would just be a 'talking head' type interview against the backdrop and we would just need a chair for them to sit on. My team would need to get there at 9, set up, film from 10 until 6 and then pack/tidy up and be out by 7.

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.

film video for a local musician

I was hoping to rent this venue to film a video for a local musician. The scenes will be very simple and typical club shots : (i.e.) dancing, talking,and having drinks. We will be coming with beautiful but pretty minimal camera and lighting equipment. The drinks are more for show than actually getting drunk so no need to worry about anyone becoming a problem or disrespecting the venue. We are really in love with this location for this particular shoot so we are crossing our fingers that this rental date will work for you.
