"...friendly. Wifi worked perfectly. Only thing to note is that the floors are a little creaky so if you're using the space to film, be sure to account for that. Otherwise, it was wonderful and easy..."

low budget indie short film

I just wanted to see if you would have any flexibility for the amount of people allowed to film in your home? We're doing a low budget indie short and have 8 cast and crew. Your place seems like a great place for us to film at and would like to know if you could accommodate a larger but still very small crew? We'd be shooting for two days over the weekend for a 10 page short about an unlikely love story with time travel.

small-budget Kickstarter video shoot

I'm Founder & Producer of a boutique production company - and I'm reaching out to see if your space is available to film the 11th? For more context, my team and I are doing a very simple, small-budget shoot for a Kickstarter video for a water bottle product. We'd need to film primarily in the kitchen. ~8 person crew: 2 actors, 1 hair/makeup artist, 2 client reps, 2 director/DPs, and myself. My team and I have liability insurance up $1M+ for all our productions and we are incredibly respectful of our Hosts' spaces.
