Very cool space. We used the soundproofed room as a soundstage for a simple video production and it was perfect for our needs -- no windows, so we had total control over lighting, it was large enough to fit our backdrop, talent, cameras and lights, and the acoustics were great, with no ambient noise or reflections/reverb. Jake was communicative and accommodating, and the onsite manager, Victor, was super nice.
