Actual performance space bookings

product testing for an app

I wanted to inquire about your space and whether its available for 2-3 full days next week. Our company is currently working on an app that requires us to test how well a phone's internet connection works in a large enclosed space. So we're looking to rent a warehouse for a few days and perform some user testing.

acoustic performance music video

I'm an aspiring filmmaker working on a music video project in need of a venue to work in. It's a simple acoustic performance with a guitarist and vocalist that will have other film material overlaid. Both the film material and musical performance will be filmed in the space, as it coincides with some of the different themes we hope to achieve. The director and musician would like to rent the space for a couple of hours for initial scouting. We would like to take measurements, explore the space, and work on visualizing our project with your venue, so we can eventually rent it in the near future for the actual filming. It should just be the three of us (a possible fourth, the guitarist, might join us for a quick rehearsal).
