music video shoot in a bungalow

Hello! We are a very small film crew looking to use your bungalow for a music video shoot. We are shooting and need a cute bungalow for the first shot, your place is perfect. We would be setting up from 09:30 - 10:30 and then shooting from 10:30 - 11:30. Apologies for the short notice request but your Bungalow is the ideal location!"

drone video from the rooftop

My wife and I are licensed drone pilots and are interested in filming a quick drone comparison video on your rooftop this evening. It looks like the perfect space for us and is far enough away from the flight restrictions due to the games :)

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.

film video for a local musician

I was hoping to rent this venue to film a video for a local musician. The scenes will be very simple and typical club shots : (i.e.) dancing, talking,and having drinks. We will be coming with beautiful but pretty minimal camera and lighting equipment. The drinks are more for show than actually getting drunk so no need to worry about anyone becoming a problem or disrespecting the venue. We are really in love with this location for this particular shoot so we are crossing our fingers that this rental date will work for you.
