Actual performance venue bookings

proposal with a private performance

I am planning the ultimate proposal for my lady and this venue fits right into my vision. I am very open for dates. I would need the space for a couple of hours for a private performance, from one of our favorite local bands. I am fine with doing it during the week, because I know it'll only take a few hours and of course, I would love to keep the cost down.

performance music video

I'm planning to use your space to shoot a little performance music video. I'm planning on bringing in fog machine and my own lighting equipment and camera equipment. It will only be the artist, me and my camera assistant. Let me know if everything works for you as soon as you can.

spoken word video shoot

I'm obsessed with your space! I will be shooting a 2 minute spoken word piece and I doubt we will even need the full 3 hours. I'll have a super small crew (1 talent, 1 camera guy, and 1 sound guy) and we won't be bringing any props or anything like that. We're just looking to shoot in front of large glass windows.

filming a music video

I wanted to look into filming a music video at this location. First off, is the space available at the above date and time frame, the 22nd, 12pm - 5pm? And secondly, in the space, do you have a ladder that can reach the ceiling if I was looking to mount two lights to the wooden rafters to shine down as spotlights on the performers? I look forward to hearing back from you!
