Ogawa Plaza park, facing Oakland's beautiful city hall. We are also just 50 ft from 12th Street City Center BART station.

We have ample photo, video, audio, and lighting equipment if you want to record your event or stream it online. We have a 55" TV and a short throw video projector available.

Nothing illegal on premises. No smoking, drugs, pornography or acts of sex allowed on premises. No alcohol without prior consent. And if you break it, you buy it.
Please, take care of our photo/video equipment as it if it is your own; we have professional grade equipment available to our guests and expect our guests to be comfortable and competent using it properly. Every client who books our space is responsible for any damages that may occur. If you are not comfortable with using our equipment and being liable for any damages, then you are welcome to bring and use your own equipment. Or, if you'd like to learn how to use our equipment, we suggest hiring our Studio Assistant who can stay with you during the rental and show you how to use our equipment properly. This can be invaluable if you want to rent and use our space on a regular basis. Studio Assistants are $100/hr extra.
When gauging time management of your production, it's generally safe to allow yourself and your crew 15 - 30 minutes for setup and breakdown. We will not open the door 10-15 minutes early to let you set up unless you ask us prior and/or book the extra time. Our studio assistant will help out for about 10 minutes to set up one or two photo or video lights if they are needed, and they will show you how the Air Conditioning and music works, and the safety features of our studio, like where the first aid kit is (always good to be safe). If you need our Studio Assistant to stay longer, then there will be an added charge for thier help. With few exceptions, we offer a 10 minute grace period to clients, but after that grace we wiil need to charge for extra time in 30 minute incriments.
