Creative Membership

What Is A Creative Membership & How Does It Work?

HGAB Studios Creative Memberships are geared towards creators who are constantly generating content. Your Creative Membership includes a list of amazing perks such as:

  1. $30/HR Photo, Video + Podcast Studio Rates
  2. FREE Community Events
  3. Discounts on Premium Workshops 
  4. 50% OFF Equipment Rentals
  5. Access To Our Online Member Portal
  6. Monthly Discounts + Specials For Members Only

What Is The Difference between An Individual Membership And A Corporate Membership?

When signing up for a Membership you will be asked whether you would like to sign up for an Individual Membership or a Corporate Membership.

A Corporate Membership allows up to 3 people to access our studios and membership perks at the member rate.

An Individual Membership will only allow one person to access our studios and membership perks. That means that if you have an Individual Creative Membership (meant for just one person), the person who is registered under the account must be present in order to access our studios and membership perks at the member rate. If the member is not present, you will be charged at the regular rate.

How Much Does An HGAB Studios Creative Membership Cost?

There are 2 payment options when deciding to sign up for an HGAB Studios Creative Membership. An annual rate or a monthly rate.

Our Individual membership is currently $35/month, or $357 (15% off) annually. 

Our Corporate Membership is currently $50/month, or $510 (15% off) annually. 

Your membership fee will be automatically deducted from the payment method provided on the same day of every month. All Creative Memberships are a 12-month contract. If you would like to exit your contract early, you will be charged a $99 fee.

 

Can Someone Else Use My Creative Membership?

Individual Memberships and Corporate Creative Memberships are to be used ONLY by the member(s) who is/are registered on the account. If you book any of our studios at the member rate the booking member(s) must be present during the booking at all times. Nobody from your production crew will be allowed access to the studios or equipment rentals at the member rate until the booking member is present. 

 

How Do I Book Studio Time or Rent Equipment At The Member Rate?

Upon signing up for a Creative Membership you will receive a special login and password in order to access our HGAB Studios Member Portal. Via the Member Portal, you will be able to access all of your membership perks and rates.

How Do I Book Studio Time? 

All Photo, Video or Podcast Studios can be booked online via HGABstudios.com 

To access our $35/Hr Studio Rates as an HGAB Studios Member, please make sure you are logged in to your HGAB Studios Member Portal. 

What Do I Need to Bring For My Booking?

When you arrive for your booking at HGAB Studios please make sure to have a debit or credit card on-hand, as well as a valid photo I.D. Upon arrival, our studio managers will hold onto these items until the end of your session. 

How Many People Are Allowed In the Studio With Me?

Studio A- Limit of 6 People

Studio A (Expansion)- Limit of 6 People

Studio B- Limit of 10 People

Podcast Studio- Limit of 4 People

If you need to exceed this limit, please call our front desk in order to make the necessary arrangements to keep everyone safe.  

Can I Arrive Early For My Booking?

You may access your reserved studio up to 15 minutes prior to your scheduled booking time. Please be aware that our studios are painted and/or cleaned before and after each booking, therefore we cannot assure early-entrance. 

 

 

What If I Need Additional Time In The Studio?

We are always happy to accommodate you with additional studio time if it is available. If there is nobody scheduled in the studio directly after you, we are happy to extend your booking at the regular hourly rate. 

Please remember that when booking studio hours, you must take into account the number of hours it takes to set-up and breakdown all your equipment. All equipment and crew members must be cleared out of the space by the time stated on your booking. 

What is the Late Fee?

If you exit your studio past the time which you booked online, you will be charged a $99 late fee. This late fee has been implemented in order to avoid delays when accessing the studio.

If a booking is late exiting the studio, it delays our process of organizing and sanitizing the studio for the next session. Therefore, in order to assure that everyone enters their studio at the time which they reserved, it is important to be punctual and mindful of the timeslot you reserved online.

How Can I Cancel My Studio Bookings?

Bookings may be canceled or rescheduled 3 days (72-hours) in advance. No last-minute cancellations or changes will be honored once you are within 72-hours of your booking. You are not eligible for a refund or store credit if you do not notify us 72-hours before your booking takes place.

Please keep in mind that when you reserve studio time in our calendar, you are blocking off that time-slot so that nobody else can use it. Therefore, we expect your fullest commitment to this time-slot. Please make sure your crew is aware of the importance of being present and on time. 

A processing fee will be deducted from any booking that is cancelled.

 

 

 

What Items Are Restricted In The Studio?

The following is a list of items that are prohibited inside any of our studios:

  1. Powdered Paint, Chalk or any other flour-like substance. These types of materials get stuck inside our equipment and cause internal damage over time. 
  2. Paint of any kind.

Do You Charge A Cleaning Fee?

We always take this into consideration and schedule a 1-hour cleaning block after every booking in order to provide a sanitized and clean space to every client. This service is always free of charge. 

However, in the event of extreme wear and tear or careless use of our studio, a fee will be assessed and charged to the card on file.
