Actual filming location bookings

short dialogue scene shoot

We're looking to shoot a short dialogue scene with three characters. Crew will be minimal, 3-4 people. We'd like to bring a few extras too to fill out the restaurant a little. I put 15 on our attendance to accommodate for those extras, but it will most likely be more like 10 people. We're all excited to shoot, as we've premiered a few of our films at the cinema next door and would always stop in for a drink before the show.

film shoot for a short film

I’m an artist/ filmmaker. I wanted to use your space for a film shoot for a short film I’m making. I also need to shoot a few outside scenes and I’m not familiar with your location. Does your location have rooftop access? Or are you near any parks?

film shoot of college party scene

I am interested in renting the space for a scene for a short film. The scene is a low key college party scene that would be primarily outdoors. With extras, it would be more than 10 people, so I was wondering if that would still work if people stay outside?

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.
