The cyc wall and floor is painted white and is repainted about once every other week but does get scuffed through normal wear and tear and may have marks on it when you show up.
If you want us to repaint the cyc wall and floor white just before your session there is a $30 painting fee.
Please let us know 24 hours in advance.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE IN YOUR GROUP KNOWS NOT TO STEP ON THE CURVED PART OF THE CYC WHERE THE FLOOR MEETS THE WALL. ALSO PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH THE BACK WALL OR SIDE WALL AS YOU WILL LEAVE MARKS. THANKS

"You" (the person renting the studio) are responsible for the studio and it's contents as well as the actions and safety of "Your Group" (all the other people in the studio with you). "You" individually assume all responsibility and all liability for any damage, theft or injuries, whether negligent or not, that occur during your scheduled time as a result of your actions or of the actions of anyone in "Your Group". In renting the studio "You" promise to personally reimburse the studio for repair or replacement costs relating to the damage or loss of any studio property that occurs during your rental time. "You" hereby certify that studio equipment will only be operated by qualified studio technicians in a manner that is safe for everyone in the studio. All equipment must be operated with due care in a manor that does not exceed the capabilities of the studio or it's electrical system. If you have any questions or are just uncertain about something you are doing in the studio PLEASE ASK FIRST. In an effort to keep the "Cyc" walls and floor clean for others who will use the studio make sure that no one steps on the curved part of the wall and that no one puts their hands on the curve or the surrounding walls. Touching the wall leaves marks as does stepping on the curve. You will be charged a $30 repainting fee if your group leaves marks on the walls or curve. Please take note of the condition and arrangement of the studio and it's contents when you arrive as "You" are responsible for returning the studio to the condition in which you found it and "'You" agree to pay a cleaning fee of $50 if you have not put the studio back in proper order by the time you leave. Finally "You" agree to ensure that you, "Your Group" and all of your property will be out of the studio by the end of your session and "You" agree to pay any overtime fees that you incur as a result of staying in the studio past your rental period. We are not responsible for any property left in the studio after your session. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
