"...Nice little house to film in. Our host, Ray, was very accommodating, and helped us move around furniture. The owner, Dylan has made films himself, so he understands what is involved with the set-up and break-down of props and equipment. There is plenty of street parking early in..."

Actual film production location bookings

graduate student film

I'm currently a graduate student, and I am shooting a short film, and came across your space. I find it extremely desirable. We would want to use the space by the window with the red neon light, probably bring in a mattress and a lamp to make it look like someone sleeps there. We would also want to use the rooftop for a scene. There are no stunts, and our entire cast and crew are signing waivers and agreements. We also will have our own insurance.

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.

small budget commercial

I'm producing a small budget commercial on the 10th. We need to film in a hip / modern office setting, and your space looks perfect. For the purposes of the scene, we would need to arrange the desks differently so that they're not all facing the wall. Please let me know if that is possible and if the space is available!
