dance music video shoot

I'm hoping to film a very short scene ("dance rehearsal" scene) in a video project I'm working on (I'm a drag performer). Do you perhaps have availability in your space this Sunday? The shoot will be very low-impact: four people, handheld camera, easy-peasy

music video shoot

I perform as an artist. We're shooting a scene for a music video and we intend to use the space as a utopian lounge where I can perform. The reason for the short notice is that my friend wants to make a cameo in the video, and is only available on Saturday before I go on tour on the 27th.
