Great location for a music video shoot! The desert location is super beautiful and there are a couple of buildings that provide shade from the sun. The booking was super easy and we didn't encounter any problems! Overall, great place to shoot, definitely recommend.

This location is beautiful! It is exactly what we had in mind for our short film. Joey was amazing to work with. Fast communication, incredibly accommodating and understanding. The land space is perfectly isolated, peaceful, with the most wonderful views! Easy drive from L.A., and secluded enough to feel that you are in the middle of nowhere without having to drive far. This is a true gem! Highly recommend it!
