I bought a building for cheap to use as the new site of my production company. The building is used for filming all kinds of media, from television shows, to movies and commercials. Before the building was fit to be used for filming, I had to hire a company for exterior restoration in nyc to get it presentable. When I first bought it, the building was pretty run down. It looked like it hand’t been used in years. I guess that’s how I got it for such a low price, because it was unappealing to most buyers from the outside. The inside wasn’t that appealing either, but I knew that I could fix it up for a little bit of money and easily make that money back from all the production I would be doing.
I hired a company to do both the exterior and interior repairs. Since I was able to use one company for both tasks, I was able to save money in the process. Over the course of two weeks, they worked on the building and turned it into a building that looked like it had just been built. I quickly started using the building for filming.
Since the building has been in use, I’ve filmed over 200 commercials, 5 films, and 13 television shows there. It’s become a prime spot for different kinds of media, but so far, action based media seems to get filmed the most there. I guess people really like the environment of the building and think it is a good place for high intensity scenes. Whatever their reason is, as long as they pay me, they can film whatever kinds of scenes and content they want in the building. I think I’ll buy a few more buildings to have as production property in NYC.
