Actual film production location bookings

short music video

This space is perfect for a scene in my client’s short film/music video. We would be filming for the time rented. Small group under 10 people between crew and actors. Small equipment only. No personal staff needed from your end. I just wanted to make sure filming was allowed if we were to rent the space before booking so I'm reaching out.

film shoot in a garage

I'm a graduate film student. I'm shooting a short and I think your garage/shop set would be a perfect location. I may potentially want a longer session if the space has everything I need. I'm also curious about your picture cars. Is there a good time I can come visit?

pickup shoot for youtube creator

I am a producer. We have a pickup shoot for one of our biggest installments that will require 6 youtube creators from around the world to come together and shoot a short segment. We are incredibly interested in shooting on your rooftop and hoping your space would be available. We will have a small footprint. Let us know if your space is available since we would really really REALLY like to film in your space.
