Hi, Emily here. We’re a woman-owned-and-operated production company in the Garment District. Come shoot at our 855 square foot loft studio located between the Port Authority and Penn Station. We have a 9-foot seamless paper wall mount, a wall with a whimsical mural and a rainbow seamless paper wall (plus a plain white wall). We have sheer white or beige linen curtains if you’d like to take advantage of our beautiful natural light (windows face west), or we have velvet green and blue curtains. Option for blackout curtains. The studio includes x4 c-stands, x6 sandbags, x1 v-flat, a set of apple boxes, and various clamps. The furniture in the first ten photos is included, as well as a variety of faux plants, vases, and other set decoration. There is a hair and makeup vanity and dressing room. All of these can be moved around to suit your needs. See our list of add-ons. We have art/set add-ons like a bed frame and mattress with bedding, or tile backdrops for product photos/videos. We have production add-ons, like 4k Sony cine cameras, lights and sound gear. We have A/V add-ons like a projector and wireless Bluetooth speaker. We work with LVR Rentals across the street, so if you need any rentals beyond what we have in-house, we can rent it for you at a 20% discount. If you choose to rent LVR gear through us, we can load your in the day before your shoot. We’re near almost every subway line. Our proximity to Penn and Port Authority makes it easy to come from New Jersey or Long Island. Stores like B&H, Target and H&M are within a 10 minute walk for last-minute production needs. Great options are nearby for food, and GrubHub will bring your order straight to the studio door. We personally recommend coffee, bagels and cream cheese from Liberty Bagels, so you can skip the block-long line at the storefront every morning! There is a Google Home speaker in the studio connected to Spotify, as well as a mini-fridge. The freight elevator is open from 7am to 5pm - if you need it outside of these hours, please let me know so I can arrange access for you. The space is NOT SOUNDPROOF. We roll sound for our own productions in this space and have not had any major issues in post production. We’re on the 15th floor and face the side of the building, not the street. We deal with your typical midtown honks, beeps, bangs, and shouts. We cannot make any guarantees about the sound quality on the day of your shoot.You are welcome to come by for a site visit during the time of day you plan to rent if you have concerns. This studio does not have a private bathroom. A key is used to enter the men and women's bathrooms in the hall. These are shared by the other offices on the floor. Please be respectful of our neighbors. Strictly no confetti, fog machines, or smoking. We look forward to hosting you, and feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!
