Your Next Film Location Rental with Cocoon
A curated collection to fit your needs.
Most producers, filmmakers, and location scouts spend hours on real estate websites searching for the perfect space to shoot their next project. More time is spent driving around to door knock or tour each film location, and once a space is chosen, seeking out a property owner for clearance is often a waiting game. Cocoon features a collection of undiscovered NYC film locations for rent – each with innovative and design-focused layouts. Our portfolio is curated to offer spaces that blend creativity and reality for an authentic and memorable scene experience.
We speak your language.
Many Cocoon clients also appreciate that the space rental process is completely property owner free. You communicate only with your dedicated Cocoon Booking Manager to reserve the space and customize the details. We even provide an onsite space and event management professional with a production background to assist you on shoot day. We speak your language and help you get things done so that the focus is always on doing your best work.
A dedicated concierge service to support you.
Cocoon takes our service a step beyond and offers you custom SuperConcierge service to assist with filming pre-planning. We can assist with staging and decor to fit your vision, coordinate props and rental equipment, schedule lunch and coffee service, and more.
