Actual filming location bookings

film a short video for LinkedIn

I would love to book this space for my husband and I to film short videos for LinkedIn to promote business. He works for a large consulting firm and it is just us and our son shooting with a small tripod and our iPhone. I realize the listing says filming after 5 but we don't have any large equipment or a team and it is just a quiet, professional shoot. Please let me know if this will work as we are looking for a space to use on a regular basis. Thanks!

dance film shoot

I'm the Artistic Director of a Dance Theatre. We're shooting a dance film on the 17th 1-5pm. It's a simple shoot - 2 dancers, myself, our videographer, and 2 additional assistants. Your space looks lovely and it's nice to see the wonderful reviews on Peerspace. I'm new to Peerspace, but I've been an Airbnb host for 4 years, so I know the many things that go into being both a great host and a great guest. We'd like to know about the natural light in the middle of the day/afternoon. We're planning to bring in a few lights but nothing extreme. I hope we can create this dance film in your space. I look forward to meeting you.
