film about a ballerina on a rooftop

I would be very interested in shooting on your rooftop on the 1st! What I'm working on is a short passion film about a ballerina dancing on a rooftop. We would need to shoot early on that Saturday morning (6:00AM-8:00AM) to just capture the ballerina performing on the rooftop. Our concept involves using enola gaye colored smoke and was wondering if that was okay. The smoke dissipates and is non-toxic.

small indie feature on the rooftop

I would like to ask you about the availability of your rooftop. We are filming a small indie feature and we LOVE your rooftop! We need to film one scene in a rooftop and yours looks so interesting! We wonder if you have it available on May 25th? Also and importantly: we need to film overnight in the rooftop, is that possible in your property? The scene is a night scene, we would arrive at 6pm so we can have 1.5-2h to set up while there's light and then we would film the scene until about 5am, when light starts to appear. We would then load out and be out by 6am! We are about 30 people, and we don't all need to be in the rooftop at the same time - is there a space you have for holding people? Let me know your thoughts.

filming a talking head video

I am a video producer and I am writing as we are looking to film a few talking head video in your space the 17th, 18th or 19th. Are one of those days better? Also, our client is very worried that considering the location of the space that sound may be an issues (echo-y, traffic sounds, any other air, heating noises) can you do me a favor and tell me a little more about that.

docufiction shoot on communication

I'm shooting a short docufiction piece and desperately need an office location for this Sunday afternoon. The scene is a workshop on professional communication. Besides a camera and tripod there is no other equipment that I need to bring into the room (i.e., no lights nor large stands nor tracks, etc.)
