How to set up a film shoot: SoFlo Studios, Florida

A couple weeks ago I was asked by one of my readers if I could help set up a film shoot in Florida for a short indie film. I figured it wouldn’t be a big deal to find a small company with what he needed for his film. He just needed a few shots in a classroom and a hotel lobby, no big deal. Classrooms and hotel lobbies are pretty much everywhere, right? Yes and no. Although they are pretty much everywhere, you have to get permission from the owner, government and pay crazy fees. So I started to look at video production companies in his area. They all seemed to be pretty expensive for something so simple. Then I found SoFlo Studio in Fort Lauderdale.
