Actual filming location bookings

short music video

This space is perfect for a scene in my client’s short film/music video. We would be filming for the time rented. Small group under 10 people between crew and actors. Small equipment only. No personal staff needed from your end. I just wanted to make sure filming was allowed if we were to rent the space before booking so I'm reaching out.

video shoot in sign language

I'm a graduate student who needs to make several videos in American Sign Language for a school project. I'd plan to use your backdrop and lighting equipment, and maybe a small table to rest my computer. I plan to film the videos using my laptop.

filming an album release trailer

I'm a local film producer working on an upcoming album release trailer, and we're moving pretty quick on it - so I apologize for the short notice in reaching out! We're looking at this space and we love it for what we're working on, but I have a couple clarifying questions: - I see no pyrotechnics allowed in the space, so does that include haze as well? Not a dealbreaker, but we'd love to haze it up a little if possible.- Is there any roof access available at this building? We have a couple rooftop shots we'd like that this location could work for as well. I marked dates/times flexible, but we're pretty set on date. Times could move around a little, but we're hoping for evening night for some cool lighting stuff.
