loft film shoot with outdoor space

I'm looking for a location to shoot a short film I wrote. The bulk of the shoot takes place at a 30th birthday party, which is obviously set at night. It's not a rager or anything, I just need to have extras standing in the background to make it looks more full. I am looking for a location that I can shoot for three nights. One of the days I would need it for 8 hours just to shoot a few daytime scenes before the "party", but the other two would only be for probably 5-6 hours so we can set up and shoot as late as you'll let us. Your loft has such a great vibe and it goes perfectly with another outdoor location we've found. Is there any way I can scout it to make sure it will work for our needs before booking?

small project for indie filmmaker

I'm an indie filmmaker and I'm definitely interested in renting this beautiful space for a project I'm working on. It's a very small project, so there will only be, at most, 6 people. However, I'm still firming up the details with the crew, so it may be less. I just have a few questions: what kind of lighting and camera equipment is available with the amenities? Also, is the furniture shown the only furniture available with the space?

documentary-style interview shoot

I'm currently producing a documentary style video for a music rights company, and we're looking for a house location to shoot an interview with one of the subjects and also b-roll of their daily routine. We would have a very small crew (less than 10 people), with one camera and a few lights, but pretty small foot print over all.
