Every job is different, and we are here to help you maximize your experience by working closely with you to tailor our space to your needs. Check out ways to help you achieve that stress-free. Here are five tips to help you maximize your HHS experience:

1. Plan and Communicate Your Needs:

Before your rental, schedule a tour or tech scout to check out our facilities. Take time to plan your shoot or project, considering lighting, equipment needs, and space layout. Communicate these needs with our team so we can tailor the setup to your requirements.

Whether it's additional lighting, backdrops, or props, we're here to help bring your vision to life seamlessly. Plus, upon request, we're happy to provide you with a list of preferred vendors.

Reach out to Quixote and Sync, where you can rent all the equipment you need for your production at a discounted rate.

If you need props and surfaces, a curated prop house located in the same building is prepared to assist your crew during business hours.

The company's inventory includes one-of-a-kind ceramics, botanicals, and all sorts of surfaces you can imagine. Besides offering package deals, The Surface Library also provides drop-off and pick-up on-site, so you do not need to worry about that.

2. Utilize Our Amenities and Bring Your Pet:

Besides providing the best service, ensuring you feel comfortable and inspired in our space is our goal. We offer a range of amenities alongside being a pet-friendly environment. 

Our site representative is always available for technical support and assistance throughout your rental period. 

Our professional kitchens have numerous implements, so you don't have to worry about renting them.

Additionally, our Hair and Makeup room features two separate stations, and our multiple multi-purpose rooms cater perfectly to conferences, meetings, and client needs.

3. Explore Concierge Services:

Elevate your experience with our unique partner services. From on-site massage therapists to private chefs, we connect you with the right professionals. Just reach out and inquire about these exclusive offerings.

4. Have fun and get creative with Set Design:

Take advantage of the flexibility of studio space to experiment with set design. Whether it's a commercial or editorial, video or photo production, think outside the box and get creative with props, furniture, and lighting. Our studio's adaptable layouts encourage creativity, so don't hesitate to push boundaries and try new ideas.

5. Stay Organized:

Efficiency is crucial in studio rentals, so stay organized and stick to your schedule. Allocate time for setup and breakdown, ensuring everyone involved is on the same page. We love to share our work oasis with people who treat it with the same care and respect.

By following these tips, you'll make the most of your time at Historic Hudson Studios, creating visuals that exceed expectations. We can't wait to welcome you and help bring your creative project to life!
