STANDING SET PRISON / JAIL CELL
SMALL MINI STUDIO
+cells are in a 500 SF industrial space near the Van Nuys airport that's perfect for small productions and short projects.
+Two jail cells each with a cot and mattress.
+Both have rolling bar doors
+Payphone is real. Can be removed to have a clean wall.
+Comes with 2 cots and foam mattresses. NO LINENS
+includes a rolling set piece with "bulletproof" glass that is used for inmate and visitor scenes.
+Has two payphone handsets
You can also film from inside the cell looking out using the same set-piece but flipped around backward. It works as a hallway if you are shooting a guard interaction, for example, and want to see the guard's face or over the inmate's shoulder.
+Comes with 1 folding table (not to be used by art dept) and folding chairs
+A/C. (it's old but works fine in the small space)
+Parking for 1 1/2 vehicles (motorcycle) right in front of the door. Street parking isn't terrible.
Note, cell bars do not SLAM but they do close with a strong magnet and make a nice stick.
The studio must be returned to the condition it was delivered.

adult content, fire, burning, SFX, painting, rigging on set, drilling into set, taking apart or modifying ANY part of the set in ANY way, etc without written permission.
