Share
Our space is a large ranch of 25 acres in the Western end of Santa Monica Mountains. We are a working creative community ranch with lots of different spaces with different looks. The focus is the natural environment with some structures, all of our locations are outside. If you are looking for scenery with no visible buildings ,with the classic Southern California mountains look, we have it. Oak trees, sycamore trees, hills, big boulders, dirt roads, seasonal creeks and mountain vistas. Some of our areas: There's a rustic colorful trailer in the woods. Dirt and gravel roads A fabulous patio and pool behind the main house. A sweeping beautiful meadow with giant oaks trees, Seasonal creek, full of rocks and boulders. Big and small bridges Open meadow with mountain backdrop A giant stilt tree branch platform. All outside spaces. We've recently added the property next door to us for more outside looks. Please see our pictures for ideas. On the next door property , there's a handmade whimsical troll cottage for interior/exterior shooting , as well as an Elephant barn for interior and exterior shots. See the listing for "Rustic Buildings-Troll Cottage & Elephant Barn" We've had music videos, outdoor horror films, nature branding content, feature films, among others shot here. For production , we have a converted bus with power, A/C, counters, seating, mirrors, clothes rack, outdoor area. Located in the parking lot, good for use as base camp. During this Covid situation we have a Porta potty that is designated just for the productions. There is a hand washing sink with soap , hand sanitizer and paper towels . Please wear masks when interacting when possible and especially when interacting with residents of the property. There is also a large screened pop with either A/C or heat depending on the weather. Power available and light. Comes with 6' table and 4 folding chairs. It can be used for production office, make up, holding area if you need a setup closer to the middle of the property. We have power in the trailer and stage area. Internet is outside and inside the trailer. There is also some available down in the main parking lot. The phone service is bad unless you have Verizon and even then it's not everywhere. Wifi calling is available if you are set up for it. The back meadow and areas farther from the front will need generator power. We have Kawasaki Mule ATV vehicles to rent for moving gear around. There's a huge parking lot in the front area, 30 cars. There's also parking in the back(15 cars) and access and parking to the middle areas. We ask that people carpool , but we also have access the parking on the property in front of us. Big box trucks can only get to the parking lot. Further back we have low trees and power lines. The smaller box truck and high vans can make it to the back . We're 20 mins from 101 Freeway on a private/public road. The last 2 miles of the road are private and the road is one and half lanes wide. We must respect the neighbors that use the road. There are pull out spots, for when 2 cars meet. Please be nice and back into or pull out to the side when you can. And drive slowly as there are animals on the road too. besides the scenery is beautiful!

We had such a great experience shooting a music video on this property! Lynne was so kind and helpful along with many other awesome residents there. She set up our base camps exactly how we needed before our arrival and had the ATV ready to go, and was available throughout the day if we had any questions. The crew bathroom was clean and the hand washing station was great to have for COVID safety. I definitely recommend adding the ATV rental on for easy transport throughout the property. Our footage turned out absolutely beautiful and we will definitely be booking again with Lynne soon, already planning some future videos around using this amazing outdoor space!
