Danny was hospitable and kind enough to allow us to film our little independent short film in his home. Our other location fell through, and he and his family made accommodations so the production could still go through. I’m very grateful!

Danny is without a doubt the best host I've ever had on any platform. His space is as photographed which is exactly what you want when you book a space for production. He and his wife are gracious hosts -- they gave me and my team the access, time, space, and flexibility required. Incredibly kind people. I will absolutely be back to shoot more content here!

Advantages

  • Venues
    Austin has a wide selection of rooftop venues to choose from. Downtown Austin alone is a prime location with a concentration of buildings with rooftop spaces suitable for events.
