This is a really beautiful open space with so much natural light! Brian and Sharon were so accommodating and generous. It was a real pleasure to be able to have our event here and I definitely hope to rent it again!

4 important points to mention. 1. This is right by a train track and any video or audio recording in the space will definitely be interrupted by the loud noise of the train. 2. From 1 to 3pm it was very hot in the room even with the air conditioning on. 3. Some of the curtain rods were broken and taped up so that it is not possible to cover the windows. This caused problems with slots of string sunlight limiting the space we had to record video. 4. There is a rule that you cannot move the couch or you will be charged. I don't understand why but it limited the options and space that we had to record video. Besides these 4 issues listed it was a great place to work and record video. The curtains not being able to cover or block out the windows was by far the biggest issue that caused problems we had to spend significant time working around.

Music Video Options in Chicago

Making music videos isn’t a one-person job. Whether you’re a seasoned artist or shooting for the first time, having the right crew by your side can help you create an excellent music video that stands out.

  • Video Director
    Unless you’re an experienced filmmaker, you’ll need to hire a music video director in Chicago to oversee the production process. Directors are skilled professionals who supervise the team, from filming to editing.

  • AV Technician
    Audio-visual technicians are crucial commodities for the shoot. They troubleshoot equipment issues, install systems, and ensure that images and sound are always of excellent quality in the filming location.

  • Production Equipment
    The production equipment you need will depend on your budget, what you want to accomplish, and the video quality you want to make. Ensure every crew member is equipped with appropriate gear to fulfill their roles. Suppose you don’t have the budget to purchase new equipment but want to access high-end camera gear. In that case, you can hire a production rental company in Chicago.

  • Musician
    Musicians or band members are a crucial component of making a music video. You can’t film a music video without the composer or the artist. You can feature them in the video or simply use their recording, depending on the theme and structure you want to create.

Pros and Cons of Music Videos in Chicago

A good music video space in Chicago is easy to find. But before picking any location in the city, you need to carefully consider its pros and cons to make a sensible decision.

Advantages

  • Vast entertainment options
    Chicago has excellent cultural attractions, festivals, clubs, parks, and outdoor activities to enjoy. There’s always an adventure you can feature, no matter the theme of your music video.

  • Air transportation
    Chicago has several convenient airports if you need to travel a lot. O’Hare International Airport is one of the country’s busiest airports and is easily accessible through public transportation.

  • Top-of-the-line shopping centers
    You’ll need numerous items and gear for filming, as well as props and décor for your music video space in Chicago. Luckily, the city has many top-quality shopping centers where you can buy everything you need for the shoot.

Disadvantages

  • Big crowds
    You might need to shoot in public locations when filming a music video. Since Chicago receives millions of visitors each year, expect to find visitors flocking in popular areas in the city.

  • Bone-chilling wind
    Chicago isn’t called the Windy City for nothing, so you might want to stay indoors for your music video. But if it requires an outdoor setting, make sure you dress appropriately. Bring waterproof boots and several layers of clothing just in case.

  • Terrible traffic
    It’s common for a big city to experience traffic, but Chicago is on another level. It was the country’s third-most congested city and the seventh in the world at one point.
