short film about a single mom

I'm making a short film about a single mom in the valley. We want a scene of her watching TV with her daughter, doing makeup in the bathroom and asleep in bed. I would need the apartment next the 14th (shooting in the afternoon but coming earlier to set up toys/props to make it look like a kid lives there).

rooftop filming

I am a grad student in a film program looking to use your rooftop for my classmate's student film. The short film is about two strangers meeting on a rooftop. We are looking to shoot Friday and Sunday. We also were wondering if you are available sometime tomorrow evening (Friday)?

portrait photo shoot

I'm a fine art photographer working with large view camera and black & white film. I am interested in your studio for a portrait shoot. There are several dates that work, but the time is important for the person I will be photographing. I am assuming for the duration of the rental that no one else would be in the space, is that a correct assumption?
