Awesome views for nighttime shoot. Small stage on the roof made an interesting platform for some shots in this music video. Equipment access through freight elevator worked, but still some lugging to get up to the roof. Fantastic location overall!

Good nighttime view of houses and distant DTLA. Good low-budget site for music video or film. Access is not the best, but the views made up for that.

Rooftop/pool area worked will for our music video. Scenic views in the background, nice pool furniture, and good access made our day go smoothly. Recommend!

Easy access to the very open space. Most of the ceilings are really high, and the natural light can really work in many cases. Easy space to dress, but the brick backgrounds are really nice too. Very creative and flexible space.

About Los-Angeles

Whether you call it the City of Angels, Big Orange, or LA LA Land; Los Angeles remains an exciting city that attracts a huge number of visitors annually. The city is home to internationally-known attractions like Disneyland and Hollywood; Los Angeles is one of the world's exciting places to visit.

Los Angeles is a wealthy city, largely thanks to proceeds from the film industry. If the city stood independently as a country, its economy would easily outdo Sweden, Saudi Arabia, and Switzerland. The city is known for its year-round beautiful weather but when it rains it really pours in Los Angeles. Outdoor activities are all the rage in Los Angeles with beautiful beaches, extensive park acres to explore, and diverse hiking trails.

Overall, LA is a community of creatives with dreamers and doers shaping the city's economy. You should also consider renting a music video space in Los Angeles for your upcoming production.

Music Video Options in Los Angeles

Filming a music video is a great way to test the waters, whether you are a budding musician or filmmaker. Most music videos typically don't require a Hollywood-sized budget, and creativity is what works at the end of the day. Teaming up with the local professionals can help you come up with a viral-worthy music video in Los Angeles.

  • Camera Operator
    You'll need to work with a filming crew and the camera operator is perhaps one of the key team members. After all, they are responsible for capturing your vision and it helps to work with someone who has the necessary skill and technical know-how to handle professional cameras.

  • Lighting
    You've probably heard the statement "lights, camera, action!" It summarizes what you need to produce a music video, and lighting is an important part of the process. Work with a lighting technician and hire professional lighting to upgrade the overall look of your project.

  • Talent
    Depending on the structure or theme of your music video, you might need to work with actors or dancers. Working with acting school volunteers can lower costs but if your budget allows it, hold a casting to get professionals on board.

  • Gear
    Filming equipment accounts for a chunk of production budgets, and it's more affordable renting the gear. It helps to work with a filming crew who can have their own gear but there are plenty of film equipment rental stores in Los Angeles.

  • Editing
    Once you've recorded the art, a video editor takes over and does the rest of the magic. For a professional product, you should work with an expert in the field.

Music Video Companies in Los Angeles

Several big names like David Fincher, who worked with Madonna in the '80s, established their careers by producing music videos. Whether you are a musician, a seasoned act, or an upcoming director, the local experts can help you produce an awesome music video in Los Angeles.

  • Ocean Front Entertainment
    This full-service production company is well equipped to film your next production. Their in-house services include motion production, still photography, sound recording, editing, and equipment rental. Over 20 years in the business ensures clients that Ocean Front Entertainment knows exactly what is on-trend.

  • Hive Lighting
    Hive Lighting is your plug for all your photography and production-related lighting needs. The Omni-color LEDs offer a spectrum that results in the highest light quality. They also weigh less while still doing more. Founded by photographers and filmmakers, the team here knows the versatility of every product they work with.

    Pittmobile Talent Agency represents some big names in the industry as well as up-and-coming acts. They specialize in packaging musicians, actors, models, screenwriters, and comedians. In turn, they can provide talent for your project.

Pros and Cons of Music Videos in Los Angeles

The world's entertainment capital provides prime grounds to produce diverse projects. However, LA presents both advantages and disadvantages that might potentially affect your music video plans.

Advantages

  • The culture
    Los Angeles revolves around entertainment and tourism which both contribute to the city's culture. You are definitely in the right place when producing a music video in Los Angeles.

  • The creativity
    LA oozes with creativity and the city hosts diverse art shows and festivals each year. Not to forget that it's where the biggest hits and classics are produced, hence the reason why it’s the best place to shoot a music video.

  • The dining scene
    Being a melting pot of cultures, as expected, Los Angeles has an incredible food scene. Filming a music video takes several hours, and you should treat your crew to some of LA's finest eats in between.

  • Sports haven
    Major professional sports teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Kings, Los Angeles Clippers, and Los Angeles Dodgers hail from the city. It doesn't hurt to borrow inspiration from this aspect for your music video.

  • Diverse terrain
    You can go from the beach, mountain, and desert in one day when exploring Los Angeles. The diverse terrains provide scenic vantage points that provide some great locations for your music video.

Disadvantages

  • It's expensive
    It's a well-known fact that Los Angeles is an expensive city. You can lower the costs of producing a music video in this city by working with film school students or fresh graduates.

  • Extreme traffic
    The traffic in LA isn't just bad, it falls on the extreme side. You might want to use fewer physical locations and settle for a music video space in Los Angeles with multiple sets.

  • Parking
    Traffic and parking nightmares in Los Angeles go hand in hand. Fortunately, most businesses have valet parking and it should be a priority if you'll be moving around the city with filming gear.

  • You'll need a car
    LA isn't a city you can expect to get around on foot. The neighborhoods are spread out and when moving around with a filming crew and production equipment, you'll want to make proper logistical arrangements.

  • Stiff competition
    Everyone associates LA with tourism and entertainment, and in turn, there's stiff competition within these industries. Remember that everyone needs a start, and you should give film school students or fresh graduates a shot.

Famous Locations in Los Angeles

  • National History Museum of Los Angeles
    The National History Museum of Los Angeles might feature an extensive permanent collection and numerous galleries, but it's perhaps popular for its dinosaur exhibits. "Becoming Los Angeles" takes visitors on a 500-year journey to the past history of Southern California.

  • The Original Farmers Market
    With its beginnings in 1934, the Los Angeles Farmers Market overcame the Great Depression and currently stands as an attraction. The market offers a worthwhile shopping experience with specialty shops, food stands, and restaurants.

  • La Brea Tar Pits
    The La Brea Tar Pits are found within Hancock Park and provide an opportunity to learn more about fossil excavation. The Tar Pits go 40,000 years back and were formed by oil seeping through the rocks around the area. They would entrap passing animals and the tar preserved the fossils through the ages.
