NEW COVID INFO:
Dear MoonHut Fans,
We are so happy to be able to offer our space again for your video and photo shoots. We missed you all during the months of the pandemic lockdown.
While we were shut down we made some alterations to our space to help everyone stay safe while working here. We no longer allow anyone in our live space, which includes the bathroom. We keep a portapotty outside that is cleaned professionally, and we installed an outside sink for handwashing. We encourage you all to take your breaks outside in our back patio area, where we also have a sanitizing station.
Unfortunately, with the pandemic has come extra security issues, and so we have had to board up our back windows on Hut 2, and add more bars. This should not affect your shoots, but the windows no longer open.
If you need the privacy of a separate costume changing area, please let us know, and we can accomodate you. Please let us know how we can make your shoot better.
I've made a video tour to cut down on one point of contact - though you are still welcome to scout the location.Copy and paste https://youtu.be/ZuFCcvwcTh0
Everyone involved with your shoot will have to sign a covid-19 liability waver when they arrive.
Moon Huts are a photo and video location near Downtown Los Angeles, at the end of the 710 Freeway and Cal State LA. The Huts are a readymade and unique property for anyone needing a grunge, dystopian, urban feel. We have no cove, but we do have round walls and a look like no other space in LA.
We can also accommodate meetings, rehearsals, set construction, and other events and productions. We have onsite parking and industrial roll up doors with loading docks.
The Moon Huts are three WWII era Quonset huts plus studios. Our steel 1947 buildings originally housed military personnel, and have a led a colorful life since then—including as an iron works, a Harley Davidson biker club, a murder and crime cleanup service, and an “herbal” grow house. We are now all cleaned up and ready to serve your needs!
The space is a total of 4000 square feet—each hut is 1000 square feet. Hut #1 is a cool living/office space. Hut #2 has an interior structure inside that can accommodate lights. Hut #3 is clean and smooth, like the inside of a whale.
N. Hollywood Studio Amazing TopBox Light Cyc

10 hour minimum rental.
We’ve made it easy to shoot commercials, films, tv shows, pilots, music videos, shorts, and VR work on our stage! Our LightCube is a curved cyclorama, pre-rigged with a fabulous 28'x28' Top Light LiteGear LED panels with DMX control, and diffused with The Rag Place Magic Cloth.
The LightCube is flip-of-the-switch fantastic, and definitely not your average pre-lit-cyc! Light panels can be turned on all at once for one solid continuous light source, or individually controlled for custom looks. Typically our clients will run the lights at only 30% power.

This is a $100,000.00 rig, that will save you thousands in time and labor trying to achieve the same look!
