Re: Sydney Australia - Renting a hospital room for an hour.

Fox Studios?

Seriously though, I don't think you have a very high chance of being able to film at a real life hospital. Even if you do somehow find a hospital willing to accomodate you, you'll be required to jump through all sorts of hoops with insurance, permits, etc.

You could try contacting some local private practitioners such as GP's, dentists, radiologists, physiotherapists, etc, who might have hospital beds, operating theatres, or whatever else it is you need for your hospital scene, and who might be willing to let you do it after hours.

Your best budget bet though is to just build a very basic set yourself with a few props and clever camera angles, or to re-write the scene so it can take place elsewhere.

Re: Sydney Australia - Renting a hospital room for an hour.

Some Specialist Dr's have their own Operating Theatres which may be available on weekends. I know of one, but can't give you the name on here. And not sure if he'd allow it, but you can give it a go.

Re: Sydney Australia - Renting a hospital room for an hour.

Aged care facilities also have hospital style beds in the "high level care" sections.

And they tend to have a room become available from time to time. :-)

Re: Sydney Australia - Renting a hospital room for an hour.

Not as silly a request as you might think.

There was a bit of a "to do" in central London a few years back when the local health board dicovered in it's end of year accounts that an entire ward, mothballed due to budget restrictions, had been rented out to a film company for "quite some time" to shoot a feature.

It wasn't so much the fact that it had happened, but that the "higher ups" didn't know about it till well after the event.

Check with the admin at your local medical board, there's bound to be a mothballed Base hospital (complete) or wards, scattered all over Sydney.

I know there's one (entire mothballed Base hospital) in Coffs Harbour, a tad out of the way for you though, probably.


CS

PS: From memory, in the London incident, the ward came complete with all fixtures, fittings, equipment and even, I think, supplies. Everything but patients!

Re: Sydney Australia - Renting a hospital room for an hour.

I looked at a list of closed hospitals in Sydney. Most of them have been converted into housing. A consequence of the housing bubble (the one that we dont have).

I also emailed out to a bunch of student organizations at Usyd - so lets see if that would pan out. The Nursing and Medicine Faculty have Clinical labs that would be perfect.

Re: Sydney Australia - Renting a hospital room for an hour.

I assume your script says 'hospital table' because of how the person passed away, was it an exterior accident or happened in the hospital? Obviously it's not in an operating theatre, would a bed be more suitable?

It would seem to portray more drama on a 'hospital table', but that smacks of being in the morgue. The procedure for deceased persons is to move them to the morgue of a hospital asap, possibly awaiting an autopsy. Getting into a morgue will be a problem, getting out more so.

So I'd try a private hospital, asking about exterior shots to establish the scene, emphasising limited gear, lights, duration, on a weekday etc. along with a small sympathetic crew, a suitable patient male/female? your own flowers and a movie credit. Good luck.

btw looks like you started your thread in the wrong forum, on the day make sure you leave time to find the hospital :)

Cheers.

Yes a bed, as the person had drowned.

I did think of sneaking into the uni morgue, where the cadavers lie. But I doubt a small crew and cameras can be explained.

I am trying the training beds for the uni Nursing and Medical faculties. They are made to look like a hospital bed. And may work with the right angles.
