For each started overtime hour we charge 85€.

The core hours in our film studio are 8:00 to 21:00. If you would like to use the studio at earlier or later times, this is of course possible by prior arrangement. An additional charge may be made for very early or very late use.

Of course, our Westside Studios can also be rented on weekends. On weekends and holidays a surcharge of 150€ will be charged.

You are also welcome to visit our film and photo studio beforehand to get a first impression and clarify initial questions. This often works spontaneously, the studios are always occupied. Just call or write a short mail: +49 (0) 069 201 66543 / hello@westside-studios.eu

Equipment and personnel

From studio assistant to lighting technician to DoP, we can provide everything that is needed for a professional production. Especially our lighting technician and our live technician are often booked. Depending on the function, the daily rates range from 400 € - 700 €.

TV stations or production houses often book our live team, which operates the live technology and does image mixing or a recording team for studio recordings (e.g. statements before green).

Our team is also happy to act as part of your team (white labeling). Westside Studios only acts as a rental studio in front of the end customer in order to avoid possible competition.
