Abandoned Vintage Apartment (1970s)

Favorite
Share
An abandoned 1970s vintage apartment just 9 miles east of Downtown LA. Grungy wall paper, stained carpets and yellowing walls are ready for you and your crew to take over and make your very own! This location features a vintage kitchen, living room, bedroom, two bathrooms and a central, enclosed atrium where lights can be placed for all four rooms and all sun light can be easily controlled. Managed by filmmakers for filmmakers! Fast response times, easy scouting and knowledgeable, film-friendly site-reps. --Scouting-- We are open for location scouting between 9am and 2pm Monday through Friday by appointment only. Off hours scouting subject to availability and additional charges may apply. --Furnishings-- While we try to keep a handful of small items around the space for productions to use, please consider the space unfurnished. Currently the speakers in the living room are in storage as most shoots don't use them, but they can be setup with advance notice. If you don't see it on your scout it's not included with the rental! --Wallpaper-- We highly encourage productions to come scout our location. The wallpaper is in a constant state of change from production to production due to wear and tear and its current state may not match the pictures above! Come see what it's like for yourself before booking! -- Overtime Policy -- Please note: Giggster's policy is to charge 1.5x overtime for any hours outside your booking. If you go one hour over and paid $100/hr, that hour would be $150! As a location, it's very important to us that we have an accurate idea of the exact number of hours you intend to book. If you contact us up to 24hrs in advance we will be happy to extend your booking hours at the base rate to avoid the higher overtime rate. Otherwise, overtime will be billed at 1.5x your booking rate. -- Booking Policy -- All bookings are on a first come, first serve basis. If you do not have an approved booking here on Giggster your dates are not reserved. Inquiries about the location or coming by to scout the location will not place any form of hold on your dates. We will however provide a soft hold for specific dates by written request only once you've completed a preliminary scout. During a soft-hold we will alert you to other clients requesting your desired filming dates and will give you approximately eight hours to make your formal booking before approving the competing booking. -- Offices -- Offices in the photos rent for $50/office/day and are not included in the rental.

We had a great time shooting in the vintage apartment set. AJ was very quick to respond and helpful throughout so were Joe and Ray who were at the studio. Couldn't have asked for a better last day of shooting for our film!

We were appreciative that there were so many furniture pieces we could use to decorate the rooms we filmed in. Though there were challenges, such as having to put back together a bed the previous renters had dismantled and having to shoot around the places that were a little too damaged like the carpet in the livingroom, we were still able to persevere and get all the shots we needed.
