An abandoned 1970s vintage apartment just 9 miles east of Downtown LA.
Grungy wall paper, stained carpets and yellowing walls are ready for you and your crew to take over and make your very own!

Fast response times, easy scouting and knowledgeable, film-friendly site-reps.
We are open for location scouting between 9am and 2pm Monday through Friday by appointment only. Off hours scouting subject to availability and additional charges may apply.
While we try to keep a handful of small items around the space for productions to use, please consider the space unfurnished.
Currently the speakers in the living room are in storage as most shoots don't use them, but they can be setup with advance notice.
If you don't see it on your scout it's not included with the rental!
We highly encourage productions to come scout our location. The wallpaper is in a constant state of change from production to production due to wear and tear and its current state may not match the pictures above!
Come see what it's like for yourself before booking!
-- Overtime Policy --
Please note: Giggster's policy is to charge 1.5x overtime for any hours outside your booking. If you go one hour over and paid $100/hr, that hour would be $150!
As a location, it's very important to us that we have an accurate idea of the exact number of hours you intend to book.
If you contact us up to 24hrs in advance we will be happy to extend your booking hours at the base rate to avoid the higher overtime rate.
Otherwise, overtime will be billed at 1.5x your booking rate.
-- Booking Policy --
All bookings are on a first come, first serve basis. If you do not have an approved booking here on Giggster your dates are not reserved.
Inquiries about the location or coming by to scout the location will not place any form of hold on your dates.
We will however provide a soft hold for specific dates by written request only once you've completed a preliminary scout.
During a soft-hold we will alert you to other clients requesting your desired filming dates and will give you approximately eight hours to make your formal booking before approving the competing booking.
-- Offices --
Offices in the photos rent for $50/office/day and are not included in the rental.
-- Multi Site Bookings --
Martinsound hosts some of Giggster's most exciting locations including the Abandoned Grungy Apartment, the Retro Electronics Lab and the Grungy Warehouse Stockroom all in the same building!
We're happy to offer the convenience of hosting shoots that use multiple sites in our fantastic location!
To make things fair, simple and straight forward, here's our multi use booking policy:
All multi site bookings will be booked individually.
Each must have their own start and stop times and each space will be billed for individually including overtime (if the crew or gear is in the room past the booking, it goes into OT).
Each site will be billed at it's standard rate per crew size starting at $100/hr unless otherwise discussed but we will only charge the site rep fee once!
Often we will book multiple sites in one day with consecutive or sometimes overlapping crews (just as a studio with two sound stage
