Actual filming location bookings

last minute interview film shoot

Just had someone cancel on me last minute for a film shoot I'm working on. It's interview-based and it's on Thursday. We'd need to rent the space from around 9-4. Would still need to get approval from client, but could we go ahead and reserve the space?

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).

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.
