The host and production studio were great to work with. Allowed us to ship a couple items in since we were traveling from out of town, and communicated very well. We were able to capture all the content we needed. Only small issue was there is no AC and unfortunately we were shooting on a day that was a little hotter than normal for San Francisco, so we weren't able to utilize the upstairs areas much because it was to warm for crew and talent. But that was just a minor hiccup and we were able to work around it.
