The Space

The locker room is a 1030 square foot historic set of 8 rooms available for film shoots, photo shoots, arts rehearsals, and meetings. The rooms, located beneath a church, were abandoned in the 1970s. From October 2018 through April 2019, the space was renovated and is now available for your use. Thus, the look of the space is raw and industrial. Most of the floors are concrete. The bathroom and shower room are tiled. Many of the walls have flaking paint jobs and weathered areas. There's exposed piping, wood beams, and unique materials and textures everywhere. A video tour of the venue is available here: https://youtu.be/xVsWujC8ZNY The Shower Room has four brutal, beautiful vintage black shower stalls with working water spouts. The front door has a speakeasy style password window, which can be a fun set piece for certain shoots and events. The space lets in very little daylight. The main doorway to the space can let in daylight, if left open. This allows photo and video work to have total control over the lighting. The bathroom has a window to outside which can be easily blocked. The space is equipped with a 12,000 BTU Fujitsu wall AC unit to keep you cool in the summer. We have two 5600W Dr. Infrared DR-988 space heaters to keep you warm in the winter. There are newly installed power outlets in every room, each with two three-prong 110 volt sockets. There are ceiling lights in all of the rooms. Some of the lights are outfitted with colored bulbs for low mood lighting. Some of the lights have brighter bulbs to allow better visibility. You are free to adjust the lighting as you see fit, and you're welcome to rent our lighting gear if you'd like a brighter environment. The space is equipped with a powerful WIFI network. Phone reception in the space is often weak, depending on your carrier. The space is highly set designed because of a performance that regularly takes place there. Please be careful with our set and props. Some items, like the mannequins and the waiting room desks, can be moved without too much trouble. Many of the other decorations, such as the vines and the balloon tent, are embedded in the room and cannot be taken down or moved. Renters are able to safely store their equipment in the space overnight. The space is open from 3:30pm to midnight on Sundays, and from 4am to midnight on the other six days of the week. Our venue has a large selection of in-house photo and video gear. For additional add-on fees, renters may use: - Impact VC-500WLN 3-500Ws Digital Monolight with Transmitter Kit /// 3 x Monolights /// 3 x White Reflective Umbrella with Permanent Black Backing /// 1 x Wireless Transmitter /// 1 x Softbox with Speedring (24 x 36") - Bi-color LED modeling light - Softbox (20x20") with 500W Tungsten Photoflood Bulb - C-stand (10.75’) - 6" Backlight Light with 100W bulb - Vanguard Alta Pro 2+ tripod - Universal Filter Holder (12x12") - Filter Gels (Rosco CalColor Kit 12" x 12", 33 sheets) - Bi-color on-camera light - 2 sandbags (20 lb and 15 lb) - 2 x pedestal fans (18" and 16") - set of four apple boxes We regret that at this time, our space does not offer wheelchair access. We’ve spent the last year restoring this basement from the 1800s, but we are not yet at the point where we can afford to build ramps or elevators. With the help of your rentals, our budget will get there. Thank you for your patience. Our space is more popular during evenings and weekends, and so our hourly rate varies. Weekday evenings are priced higher after 6pm. Friday evening and all of Saturday and Sunday are priced at a premium. Keep in mind our special weekday morning rates. Between 4am and 9am, the space is available for $65 per hour. The locker room is located on Bushwick Avenue near the Halsey J and Gates J stations, and a 12 minute walk from the Myrtle Wyckoff L / M station.
