Hi! We’re Guia Mondello and Paris Davis – co-founders of Homemade Studio.
As creative professionals ourselves, we understand how painful location scouting can be and the effort it takes to create the perfect set from scratch. Relying on personal networks, using expensive location scouts and spending hours searching the internet, social media or other booking sites that aren’t specialised for productions is impractical, especially when every precious minute counts.
Our journey began when we were in search of a location to showcase and shoot a collection of products. After much research and little success in finding a truly authentic space, we concluded that the best alternative would be to use a friend’s stylish home as a ‘ready-made’ set. At this point, we could not help but wonder: with so many beautifully designed local homes and private spaces, wouldn’t it be helpful to have an online marketplace that allows creatives to directly connect with owners wanting to rent their spaces for productions?
