If you’re a location scout searching for a place to film a TV show, web series, commercial or movie then you’re in luck! Free Range Office might be the place for you.
Free Range is known in Chicago as a coworking hub for remote workers, digital nomads, and tech startups. It also specializes in providing a space for meetings, training sessions, conferences, and all types of events from holiday parties to baby showers. With such a wide variety of functions, it is no surprise that Free Range Office has recently started offering its facilities to production teams as a film, television, commercial, or video shoot location.
Why should you consider Free Range Office?
Exactly because it’s unconventional and unique. Your shot will stand out from all the other scenes filmed in bland, grey Berber carpet and painful, fluorescently lit offices.
It’s close enough to the center of Chicago’s lively Wicker Park/Bucktown neighborhood to be in walking distance of great food, boutiques, and coffee shops but far enough away to be quiet, peaceful and easily accessible.
The space itself is a beautiful wood loft with a large variety of desks, ergonomic chairs, and couches, all of which can be rearranged, in large, high-ceilinged and open rooms or small, cozy, and private office-nooks.
Tucked between a city street and residential block, the view from a window at Free Range can either show a busy road or a scenic, leafy neighborhood.
The space looks professional but isn’t insanely expensive. Thus a small DIY production can create there a highly professional-looking product at an affordable price.
There’s plenty of natural light.
