  • If our project is running longer than I planned, can I add time to my rental?"
    Depends, if there is no one right behind you on the schedule we can offer you more studio time in one hour blocks. But if there is another rental client that is starting right when you should be leaving we can not. Please Note: We reserve the right to refuse additional time to anyone/renter, for any reason.
  • What if I don't use all my time I booked?
    There are no refunds for unused time. Book what you think you need from your start time to exit time. Some folks book one hour less, then ask to add more time if their project does end up taking longer. But this option is only available "if" no one is scheduled right behind you. And if the studio assistant can stay in the studio longer. (Our staff can refuse additional time at any time for any reason.)
