*CONDITION/PAINTING OF CYCLORAMA WALL AND FLOOR*
Our cyc is always white for each rental; however, since many of the productions we host do not use the cyc, we do not automatically re-paint it before each rental.

Host rules

While we would like to give you full freedom to execute your creative vision in our studio, for your own safety, the safety of your crew, our staff, our equipment, and the studio itself, there are some restrictions to our studio rental.

Any activities that will generate unusual amounts of mess, require containment measures, or require higher than normal amounts of clean up must be approved in advance. Examples of these activities would be anything involving liquids, mud, dirt, confetti, glitter, powder bombs, smoke bombs, sand, fake snow, broken glass, fire, etc. We will stop your shoot and terminate your rental if you attempt any of these activities without prior permission and/or appropriate containment methods.

No painting or modification of any surface in the studio is allowed without prior written permission. No objects may be attached to any studio surface by screw, nail, glue, or other adhesive without prior permission (with the exception of paper tape or painter’s tape on the concrete floor).

The cyc is delicate and very time consuming and expensive to repair. Nothing may be attached to any portion of the cyc wall or cyc floor other than blue painter’s tape. All equipment and personnel must be kept clear of the curve of the cyc (36” from any wall of the cyc).

We clean the studio between each rental and we do not expect guests to clean the studio for us at the end of their rental; however we do expect guests to tidy up after themselves – they should place all of their trash and recycling in the provided receptacles, remove all tape, personal belongings, sets, set pieces, props, equipment, excess garbage, and litter. Guests will be charged for cleaning and removal of anything left at the Studio other than one 32 gallon garbage bag per studio rental day placed in the studio trash can. Excessive trash, leftover set pieces, props, art department materials, etc. may NOT be disposed of on the property.

No smoking
No alcohol
Studio Personnel will be present

Cancellation policy: Standard 60 day with Grace Period
