"...and backyard looks wonderful! Alex was very helpful to us and I would definitely book this location again. We did a 1960s Motown student film and he was accomodative to our needs and I would definitely reccomend this space to students. The home was very clean and well maintained..."

wedding docu-series production

We are a small film production company producing a Wedding Docu-Series. It is a positive, feel-good show. We love your space and think it will be perfect for our shoot! We are looking to do some simple sit down interviews with one of the couples to help tell their story for the show. We wouldn't be doing much rearranging aside from small things here and there and maybe moving a couch or chair around. The lighting setup would be very stripped down with 2-3 LED lights and a diffuser or two and we would be using 3 small Canon C100 cameras on tripods. The total crew is 3 cameramen and two talent!

film short romantic comedy

I am producing a short romantic comedy and am looking for a loft/apartment to film a few scenes for one of the lead characters. I just had another space cancel on me. So I need to book something immediately. There will be approximately 13 crew and staff throughout the day, not at one time. We are using 1 camera, 1 gaffer and 1 sound tech.

filming an album release trailer

I'm a local film producer working on an upcoming album release trailer, and we're moving pretty quick on it - so I apologize for the short notice in reaching out! We're looking at this space and we love it for what we're working on, but I have a couple clarifying questions: - I see no pyrotechnics allowed in the space, so does that include haze as well? Not a dealbreaker, but we'd love to haze it up a little if possible.- Is there any roof access available at this building? We have a couple rooftop shots we'd like that this location could work for as well. I marked dates/times flexible, but we're pretty set on date. Times could move around a little, but we're hoping for evening night for some cool lighting stuff.
