Sunscope Studios

Sunscope Studio Policy


Description of Property: Our Sherman Oaks Sunscope Studios is an exterior location ONLY for photography and video for ad campaigns, music videos, film, and television. It sits on almost 11,000 sqft of a private oasis with a tropical overgrown jungle garden, a classic front porch with rocking chairs, brick pathways, a camping tent, an empty pool, a ping pong table, a lounging area with a large patio and basketball court, studio backdrops, makeup area, and dressing room. There are so many different angles to shoot. All props on site can be used at no charge. Just return them where they were found, from flooded basements in the empty pool to a camping area set built for a film. We are offering an open canvas for your creative inspiration.  There are many different sets and angles, gated, and parking on the street. Sunscope Studios is inexpensive, production-friendly, and easy, with a great host.

Location: Sunscope Studios is an exterior location ONLY. Interior Green Room costs an extra $500, but it is not always available.

Bathroom: The property is open to use ONLY exteriors, so there are no interiors. So you must either bring a bathroom, or we can rent one for you (bathroom and sink model) or use nearby businesses (Chevron and Restaurants) to access a toilet.

Garbage: Bring garbage bags and take the trash with you. Nothing stays here. Take all garbage off the property.

Furniture and Props: You may move anything, but you return the item to where you found it.

Lighting and Electric Limitation: No HMIs more than 1.5k can be plugged in. Bring a generator. Electricity is available otherwise on both sides of the property.

Insurance: Your rental requires evidence of insurance coverage.

  1. Your rental requires evidence of insurance coverage. “Additional Insured” certificate and endorsement must be assigned to us. WE WILL EMAIL THAT WITH POLICY.
  2. The certificate and endorsement must state that the insurer will give the additional insured 30 days advance notice of cancellation or change of coverage and limits except ten days for nonpayment of premium.
  3. The certificate must bear the original signature of an insurance company officer or agent authorized to sign.
  4. Also, the evidence of insurance must have an “Additional Insured Endorsement” because certificates state that it is issued as a matter of information only and confer no rights upon the certificate holder.
  5. At the very least, the coverage and limits must include bodily injury and property damage for $1,000,000 per occurrence, fire legal $300,000, contractual, owned and non-owned auto (if applicable), waive subrogation, coverage is primary and must apply separately to each insured.

No Insurance: We can assist. Just ask. For a fee, we can find you insurance.

Pricing: How much does it cost?

  • A 4-hour booking is minimal.
  • Two fees must be paid: The Location Fee (for the property itself) and the Site Rep Fee (for the property representative who needs to be there).
  • Extras, if needed: filming equipment, motorhome, porti-bathroom, and sink.
