Hourly Rentals

The quick and simple answer is no. We’ve chosen not to do this because it inevitably leads to scheduling conflicts for our clients. So, in return we try to keep our studio priced fairly, renting out large blocks of time to hopefully accommodate your needs.

If you think you actually have a quick and easy shoot that will wrap quickly, let us know. In the end, it’s up to us whether your shoot can finish in a few hours. It’s almost always more cost effective to use our 4-hour slot.

Cyclorama Painting

Definitely! We paint to green, white, and blue. Green is included with the studio rental. Painting to any other color will have a fee associated with it. Make sure you get us to quote that out. Give us at least 3 – 4 days to paint.

Off Hours

For the most part we like to keep relatively normal business hours, primarily for the sanity of our employees. But, if you desperately need to shoot during our off hours, contact us, and we can talk about it.

Oh, and be warned… there will be an additional fee for off hour shooting.

Setup Assistance

Absolutely, but those fees are not included in the price of the studio.

We charge:
$125 per hour for a Producer or Director
$100 per hour for a Director of Photography/Camera Op
$75 per hour for a Grip/Gaffer/Photo-Assistant

We also know plenty of people in our field. We can always send you additional suggestions for crew, talent, and hair/makeup.

Refund Policy

To book the space, we need the rental payment in full. Though we can "hold" a date, we will check with you before releasing it to a renter that is ready to book.

As for refunds, we understand that things come up. That's why we're happy to reschedule your shoot. There will be no refunds given for shoots canceled less than five business days in advance. Because the space was unavailable, we are only able to refund 50% of the full payment for rentals canceled more than five business days in advance. There are no refunds or reschedules for equipment or painting.
