Actual film studio bookings

photoshoot and short video snippet

Your space looks amazing, and i'd love to book it if available. I would be shooting some photos and a short video snippet for an up and coming artist. I would bring one lighting guy, and one stylist with me to the shoot. We would be 4-5 People at location. Also was curious to know if we are allowed to use props and lights that are already in the studio?

activewear shoot

I would like to book your studio for 4 hours in about two weeks for an active wear shoot. When we book exactly is flexible. I'm wondering what your availability is before I set a date and book our models. Also, I saw that if we get 4 hours it is discounted down to $400 but when I tried the request booking page it set the price at $500. Also, wondering if the equipment in the studio such as the backdrop and the green screen are included with the rental or if you're charging extra fees for that. Thank you.

YouTube music video

I wanted to inquire about your "Bright, Open Studio Space with Mirrors | Ocean." I saw there's no availability for Sundays. Is that correct? I'm looking to shoot a YouTube music video for my daughter and her friends (ages ranging from 5 to 12) in this space. But we can only do Sundays.

portrait style music video performance

I'm a video producer / commissioner. I'm producing a music video this week, and we're looking for a studio space to shoot portrait style performance, and some freestyle dance on the 11th.Our hours are flexible but we'd target 11am-4pm ish. We'd be using no paint or messy materials, our plan would be to light the white cyc with colored lights, and hang up fabric backdrops with c-stands. Our crew would be minimal, probably 12 people total, and we would not be recording sound, just playing playback. Your studio looks perfect for what we're looking for and we'd be very flexible to you based on what you need to make this work. Please feel free to hit me with any questions!
