Hey everybody, I'm looking for a rooftop to shoot a low budget short film on -- preferably around downtown L.A. Eight years ago this forum came through for me with a fantastic choice -- United Pacific Studios -- that is unfortunately no longer a studio, and they won't let us go back. We are looking for something urban, gritty, dirty, etc. And most importantly, something that has different levels on it, separated by little dividers -- like New York buildings do between different addresses. What we need is something where somebody can jump off one of these levels, and with a low angle camera, it looks like they are jumping off the building, as we see them disappear below. Please attached pic -- this is from the old United Pacific rooftop that is no longer available. If anybody has any leads, please let me know. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

I am planning to shoot a choreographed dance scene on a rooftop and am seeking any tips for shooting in an uncontrolled environment with a standard Canon 5D or 7D. Should i avoid harsh lighting and shoot after sunrise or before sunset? What budget lights or gels would assist? Also with dynamic shots can i still achieve nice sweeping pans left-right following the dancer without a steady cam apparatus? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
