Actual film studio bookings

YouTube music video

I wanted to inquire about your "Bright, Open Studio Space with Mirrors | Ocean." I saw there's no availability for Sundays. Is that correct? I'm looking to shoot a YouTube music video for my daughter and her friends (ages ranging from 5 to 12) in this space. But we can only do Sundays.

photoshoot and short video snippet

Your space looks amazing, and i'd love to book it if available. I would be shooting some photos and a short video snippet for an up and coming artist. I would bring one lighting guy, and one stylist with me to the shoot. We would be 4-5 People at location. Also was curious to know if we are allowed to use props and lights that are already in the studio?
