Working with the team at Cocoon Flex Spaces and Giggster when looking for a space to film some interviews in was excellent. Once we pulled the trigger, we were given all the information we'd need in order to have an easy shoot. Everything from neighborhood food options to optional load-in time the day before, COVID-19 protocols and a location manager on site to assist with additional furniture and production design elements like computer monitors. One thing to note: if you're filming or photographing in this space, some of the artwork on the walls will need to be cleared with the artist. Thankfully our location manager brought that to our attention. It is located in Chinatown so the elevator does have an operator, that said, he was fully willing to work within our schedule and the freight elevator let's out directly onto the sidewalk, which was incredibly easy. Working with Cocoon Flex Spaces through Giggster was a way better experience than we've had with other production location sites. One place we looked at was a fully functional co-working space that they were trying to pass off as a filming location. The team at Cocoon actually works in production, and know exactly what would be expected when paying for a beautiful location such a this!
