Can i hold a studio? What is your booking policy?
Studios can be held for no charge leading up to a shoot becoming confirmed. If another group makes an inquiry on the same studio a second HOLD will be placed on the studio, in the order of which they arrive. If a lower HOLD decides they wish to confirm, others holding above are contacted via email and must confirm or release the date within 24 hours. An email from STUDIO ROOFF will be considered adequate notice for a 24 hour right-of-first refusal release regardless if a return confirmation of such email/voice notice is received by us. Once a shoot is “CONFIRMED” you are responsible for payment of studio charges.
