Welcome to the Retro Electronics Lab!
Racks of electronics equipment, microscopes, spare parts, soldering irons, and computers make this ideal for your mad-science lab needs!
Managed by filmmakers for filmmakers!
Fast response times, easy scouting and knowledgeable, film-friendly site-reps.
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.
Message us for rentals. We have a wide selection of Red, Blackmagic, Sony cameras, Cine lenses, Litepanel, Aputure and Quasar lighting, grip equipment and much more. Rent where you shoot - save time, save money!
While you are welcome to film the pieces on display, they are still considered "in-use" and must be handled, turned on and moved by our site-rep.
Any damage to the electronics equipment or lost or missing tools or parts will be charged for as damages.
We highly encourage productions to come scout our location. We do not guarantee any specific items seen in the photos above will be available or in working condition. If you don't see or test it on your scout, don't count on it on the day!
Come see what it's like for yourself before booking!
-- Multi Site Bookings --
Martinsound hosts some of Giggster's most exciting locations including the Abandoned Grungy Apartment, the Retro Electronics Lab and the Grungy Warehouse Stockroom all in the same building!
We're happy to offer the convenience of hosting shoots that use multiple sites in our fantastic location!
To make things fair, simple and straight forward, here's our multi use booking policy:
All multi site bookings will be booked individually.
Each must have their own start and stop times and each space will be billed for individually including overtime (if the crew or gear is in the room past the booking, it goes into OT).
Each site will be billed at it's standard rate per crew size starting at $100/hr unless otherwise discussed but we will only charge the site rep fee once!
Often we will book multiple sites in one day with consecutive or sometimes overlapping crews (just as a studio with two sound stages would book multiple stages per day) and we need to ensure our ability to maximize the space in order to keep our costs down and our prices affordable for everyone!
If you require access to the entire building or half the building in one booking, we offer package rates starting at 5 and 10 hours to accommodate your needs. Message us to discuss!
-- 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.
