Book the studio for your next project – instantly!
Space is everything. Space lets you dream big. The problem with keeping a personal studio is the cost involved for something you’ll use a couple times a month. On the other end of the spectrum, typical commercial rental studios are far away in the suburbs, inaccessible to most creative professionals and just not very fun.
Welcome to Hyperspace.
Hyperspace exists to give you the space you need to do your best work when you need it. Attractively priced, available 7 days a week and bookable completely from your phone or computer. Work somewhere awesome and do cool stuff.
Q: Do you have any lighting or other equipment available for rent?
A: Nope! We don’t keep any lighting on hand because we wanted to keep the rate as low as possible. We suggest checking out DPL for rentals. We do have a large electric man-lift available for rent. If there is equipment you believe we should carry, reach out to us!
Q: The floor looks kinda dirty in photos. Is the studio painted?
A: The studio is painted fresh by us before each use. Since the studio is a flat white surface, it gets dirty sometimes as people walk on it. We supply cargo blankets and a couple pairs of shoe covers for every shoot to keep the studio clean. If the studio is not clean following your shoot, you’re responsible for labor and materials to make it clean white again. Paint charges are $35/gallon and labor is $50/hour. Usually it’s about $100-125 to repaint.
Q: I want to shoot a car in the space. Do you allow cars?
A: We do allow cars and have a giant door to let you in.
Q: I only 5 and 10 hour rates. Do you offer any other rates?
A: Nope. Those are the rates we offer because of the work required each shoot to paint and reset the space. Overtime is billed at $125/hour because we want you to be on time for the sake of other shooters.
Q: How do I get a sliding scale rate?
A: We offer a sliding scale rate for purely artistic individual non-commercial shoots. These shoots cannot be for any organization (including non-profits). We want to support emerging artists in all creative disciplines and grow Detroit’s bench. Email us at email@example.com to chop it up and discuss.
Q: Why do I have to call/email The Detroit Bus Company for support? How are they involved?
A: “They” is actually “us.” This studio is a project of The Detroit Bus Company. We built it because we know Detroiters need affordable access to a studio space to make content for a whole host of reasons. We looked around and didn’t see one that we liked so we built our own.
Q: Can I rent this space for events like a wedding reception, meeting space or rock show?
A: Absolutely my dude. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s talk!
