Filming a church scene was easy with this fully set-up church. No worries about an active congregation in the way--office space, parking for all vehicles in large lot. Nice stained glass and pews.

Filming with the whole background of housing from this well-situated home was a hit for our small crew. Everything worked fine and we really appreciated the location for our group project! Thanks!

About Los Angeles

Renowned as an international hub for the film and entertainment industry, Los Angeles is a city that needs no introduction. It’s the home of Hollywood, which has drawn aspiring actors, directors, and crews for decades in search of fame and fortune, as well as some of the most iconic film venues on the big screen.

From the Griffith Observatory that appeared in La La Land to the USC campus that served as a backdrop in Forrest Gump and Legally Blonde, there are flickers of the film industry around every corner.

Production Options in Los Angeles

Los Angeles abounds with incredible filming locations, ranging from private homes to purpose-built studios and standing sets, as well as publicly accessible locations that tick all the right boxes.

  • Homes
    L.A. is renowned for its diversity of architectural styles, with everything from Mission Revival to Mid Century Modern and Chateauesque represented in its energized streets. Filming in Los Angeles allows you to find homes and residences that reflect the period in history you are recreating or the design aesthetic you desire. You can find fairytale storybook homes or Spanish Colonial villas, as well as leafy ranches just a stone’s throw from the Downtown area.
  • Film studios
    If you’re after a purpose-built studio, Los Angeles has no shortage of options, with everything you need to get the job done. Wrap-around black curtains, lighting grids, and soundproofing come standard in many, as do staging/production areas, private dressing rooms, and kitchens.
  • Hotels and Motels
    Looking to film a motel or hotel scene in Los Angeles? There are plenty of choices catering to all budgets and styles, ranging from ‘70’s motel parking lots to high-end hotel suites. You can take advantage of the establishment’s swimming pool or chandelier-lit lobby, as well as its stunning views across Los Angeles.
  • Churches
    From whitewashed Mission-style churches to vintage parish halls, you can find the church to suit your filming needs in Los Angeles. Some are working houses of worship that come “as-is,” while others have been revamped to offer a clean and timeless canvas that can be styled to suit your historical requirements.
  • Standing Sets
    Whether you need a standard office set, a hospital patient room, or a low-lit bar, Los Angeles boasts an incredible choice of standing sets that are ready to go. There’s no need to worry about getting shooting permits and managing crowds or being restricted by the days or times you’re allowed to film. Step into a realistic airplane cabin, utilize a customizable subway station, or get your legal scenes shot in a paired-back courtroom.

Production Companies in Los Angeles

While Los Angeles is synonymous with Hollywood, it’s also home to a large number of production companies. They’re responsible for many of the shoots that take place in the city, including content for some of the world’s biggest brands and celebrity names.

  • Indigenous Productions
    With Emmy and Webby awards under their belt, this LA-based film production company has been in the industry since 2011. They’ve worked with some of the world’s biggest brands, creating visually-immersive films for Red Bull, Subaru, and fashion designer, Rachel Zoe.
  • Fluid
    Run by just two individuals, Nina Leidersdorff and Alonso Mayo, Fluid produces everything from commercials to documentaries and feature films. They’ve worked on introductory videos for UCLA and The Story of Luke, an award-winning feature film that follows the life of a young man with autism
  • Optimist Inc.
    Based in Los Angeles and with offices in London and Prague, Optimist Inc.’s work includes visual interpretations of Sekou Andrews’ Grammy-nominated collaboration with the String Theory Orchestra, “Love Says,” and they partnered with Uber Eats to deliver a series of culinary-based experiences at SXSW 2019.

Pros and Cons of Filming in Los Angeles

While the advantages of filming in Los Angeles outweigh the disadvantages for most content creators, there are a few things you should be aware of before taking the plunge.

Advantages

  • It’s a thriving scene.
    There are few places in the world with such an energized film industry as Los Angeles.
  • Diversity of filming locations
    Whether you’re after an Art Deco mansion, a seemingly deserted ranch, or a ready-to-go airplane cabin, you can find the setting you desire in Los Angeles.
  • Easy-to-find production companies
    As the main hub of the United States’ film industry, Los Angeles abounds with experienced production companies who can meet your needs.
  • An abundance of aspiring actors
    Los Angeles lures aspiring actors from across the United States and beyond, waiting to make their big break.
  • Experienced crew
    When filming in Los Angeles, you have some of the world’s most talented crew members at your disposal, as well as hard-working, up-and-coming individuals.

Disadvantages

  • High costs of living
    Los Angeles is expensive when it comes to living, with housing 127% higher than the national average and groceries 12% higher.
  • High costs of location fees
    Compared to many other cities in the United States, you’ll have to fork out more for location fees and may be restricted by dates and times due to the high demand.
  • Difficult to shoot season changes/inclement weather
    With over 180 sunny days each year, finding a day with “bad” weather to shoot non-summer scenes can be challenging.
  • High permit fees
    Permit fees can be extremely costly when shooting in some locations, so it’s important to check these when scouting.
  • Locals can be wary of movies being filmed in their neighborhood
    With so many films shot in Los Angeles, locals don’t always welcome film crews with open arms when they arrive in their neighborhood.

Famous Locations in Los Angeles

Remember the junkyard in Pulp Fiction? It was shot in Sun Valley. Or perhaps the Vista Theatre on Sunset Drive that appeared in Get Shorty and Cafe Society? The Victorian-style Heritage Square Museum served as a backdrop in Saving Mr. Banks while the Last Bookstore made its mark in David Fincher’s Gone Girl.

Not only is Los Angeles overflowing with famous shooting locations, but it’s home to sites that are inextricably linked to the city’s film industry. Think of the Hollywood Sign, El Capitan Theater, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as well as the spot where the Oscars’ red carpet is laid down each year. Filming in Los Angeles means being immersed in the industry and inspired around every corner.
