film student needs HELP!

  1. HI,

    I am a student at the New York Film Academy working on my final film.
    I am looking to shoot a scene of my short film in a hospital room. I only need a room with a bed and a door. I was hoping you could help or even direct me to someone who could.
    my story is about a young man and his grandfather. the grandfather passes away (of old age) and comes back as a ghost to "say goodbye" to his grandson.
    The film will be 8 minutes long, on black and white 16mm film and silent.

    The scenes to be shot in a hospital room are the following:

    -The young man enters the room and walks over to his grandfather, laying in bed [one long shot and two close ups]
    -The young man enters (on a different day) to an empty bed. (his grandfather passed away) [two medium shots and one long shot]

    as you can imagine this won't take very long, including set up: 4 hours at the most. 2 minimum.
    I have a crew of 6 people total, including myself and 2 actors. I could cut it down to 4 if you needed me to.

    I can provide proof of insurance from my school (The New York Film Academy)
    I will give credits at the end of my film.

    We are looking to shoot this scene for either the 21st; 22nd or 23rd of july

    I would really apreciate any help I can get
    please feel free to contact me for any further information
    My e-mail is
    Again, thank you

    You can start by contacting the public relations departments in some of the hospitals in your area.

    Good luck................
