Our “Pocket Park” on the front of the Lot is not only a nice lunch spot or event location. Back in January it was utilized as the filming location for some Olympic promos! 💚🌳☀️ 🎥🎬 #park #filming #location #pocketpark #promo #commercial #fbf

Creative use of an alley on #newyork street at a recent event. VIP section bar set up with lamp posts illuminated was a nice touch. 🍸🍺🍷💡 #universallotevents #studioservices #events #bar #vip #tbt

Loving the glow these #lights give off. 18” Scoop lights above the backdrop, a 6K Skypan, and behind the mic boom is a 9-Light Maxi brute. All creating a specific ambiance for this shoot. 💡🎬🎥📸 #photo #promo #onset #stage #setlighting #grip #tbt
