Easy access through the alley swing door, great natural light, and excellent hosts make this a standout production location. The host has worked with lots of film crews, and she knows just how to help out when needed. I highly recommend this space!

About Los Angeles

You probably already know that Los Angeles is known as the City of Angels since Los Angeles in Spanish means “the angels,” but did you also know that it is known as the entertainment capital of the world? That is because the television and movie industries are found here, and thousands of films have been made in LA. It is also the home of Hollywood, which is where the Walk of Fame and the famous Hollywood Sign are located.

Los Angeles has spectacular weather with an average daily temperature of 66 degrees all year long. Summers are a bit warmer with an average high of 81 but winters are pretty fantastic with an average high of 68. And it is one of the sunniest cities in the US with over 3,200 hours of sunshine per year. So, it just makes sense to choose a production space in Los Angeles.

Production Space Options in Los Angeles

As the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles is not just the perfect place for production, it is also the best place to find help with all the details in planning the production. You can find the top caterers, photographers, and videographers as well as the best equipment rentals and car services in LA.

  • Photographers and Videographers
    You may have your own film and photography specialists already, but it is also a good idea to hire a photographer and/or videographer to record the process of the production. Videos and photographs of the team setting up, filming, and breaking down are fantastic ways to record and show off what you do.

  • Equipment Rental
    Whether you are a large company with your own equipment or a small company with just the basics, it is often best to rent the equipment you need on site. This is especially true if you are traveling by airplane because you do not want to have to trust your expensive equipment to the airlines. Choosing a production space in Los Angeles means you have access to plenty of companies with film lighting gear, camera lenses, sound equipment, and whatever else you need.

  • Car Service
    Even if you are producing on a tight budget, having a car service for you and your crew can be a time and money saver. It helps everyone get to where you need them on time, which allows you to start on schedule. It is much better than relying on public transportation to get everyone there at a certain time and it may be cheaper in the long run.

  • Catering
    As good as the car service is, you do not want to rely on them to bring you and the team your food. It is better for everyone if you just hire a caterer to take care of the whole thing. Then you have someone to plan the menu and prepare the food as well as setting up and cleaning up the whole deal. That is one less thing you have to worry about.

Production Space Companies in Los Angeles

  • Big Door TV
    Big Door TV has been working in production planning since 1993 and has worked with every major network from ABC to PBS as well as many fortune 500 companies. Whether you need someone for full-service production with equipment and everything or just a bit of help planning a shoot, this company can do it for you.

  • Stoelt Productions LLC
    This experiential marketing agency knows exactly what you need when you need it, even if you don’t. They have serviced top companies and brands all over the world to conceive and execute the best experiences that produce the best results. Some recent projects include the Louis Vuitton Rodeo Popup, Pandora x Larabar Live DJ & Flow, and the Billboard Latin AMA Fest.

  • The Visionary Group
    Another huge branding team, the Visionary Group has worked with big names like Warner Brothers, Amazon Prime, and Nickelodeon to name a few. Even if you have not chosen your Los Angeles production space yet, they can help you get everything going and take care of all the details. From art direction to strategy, the Visionary Group has done it all.

Pros and Cons of Production Space in Los Angeles

There are some things about Los Angeles that make it the perfect city to find that production space. But there are also a few negatives you may want to know about as well. Check out these pros and cons of having a production space in Los Angeles.


  • The weather is great
    If you like sunshine and warm (but not hot) weather, Los Angeles is where you want to be. With average temps in the upper 60s and sunshine almost every day, Los Angeles is probably the most pleasant place on earth. Unless you like cold or hot weather.

  • Film locations are abundant
    If you are looking for a beach, empty warehouse, or glamourous city lights, the locations to shoot are everywhere. Maybe that is why they call it the entertainment capital of the world.

  • Things to do
    Whether you want to hang out in the park, visit an art gallery, or spend the day shopping and eating, you can do it all here. They don’t call it the entertainment capital of the world just for film and TV production.

  • Plenty of cast and crew
    Another benefit of having lots of movies produced in LA is that there is plenty of cast and crew on hand and ready to work. Everyone seems to be just waiting for a gig so you can find who you need when you need them.

  • A variety of food
    You can find some of the best food in Los Angeles whether you want tacos off a taco truck or a full five-course meal at a fine dining establishment. And they have 10 Michelin-starred restaurants if you want a real treat.


  • Traffic is horrible
    Los Angeles used to be the number one city in the country with the worst traffic, but now the city stands at number two (after New York), which is still horrible. Drivers in Los Angeles sat in traffic for 365,543 hours in 2020. That is a lot of time sitting in your car.

  • Parking is worse
    If you thought traffic was bad, wait until you try to find a parking spot. The reason so many businesses offer valet parking is because there is not enough parking anywhere. Take a car service or get a cab.

  • High crime rates
    You will also find more crime in Los Angeles; rates recorded have been an average of 32 crimes per 1,000 people. That means you have a one in 31 chance of being affected by a crime in LA. Stick to the safer spots like Riviera, Brentwood, and Pacific Palisades.

  • Permit fees are high
    In many locations of Los Angeles, you will be paying quite a bit to film. It is better to book a space and film in that space to reduce costs.

  • High cost of living
    Speaking of costs, Los Angeles is one of the most expensive cities in the world, which should not come as a surprise. It’s true, no matter what you are buying, expect to pay more.

Famous Locations in Los Angeles

  • Hollywood Walk of Fame
    You cannot visit LA without seeing the walk of fame. Get pics of stars featuring Michael Jackson, Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Sally Field, and even Big Bird. You can even nominate a star or get a t-shirt with your own personalized star on it. Book a brick manor estate near the Hollywood Walk of Fame and chill out by the pool after the production.

  • The Getty
    Found on a hill in Brentwood, The Getty is one of the most popular art centers in the state and they have stellar views, gardens, and architecture as well. Close to two million people per year visit The Getty for its art dating back to the 1500s. Don’t miss the 1889 painting of Irises by Vincent van Gogh.

  • Santa Monica Pier
    This famous pier has been delighting locals and visitors of Los Angeles since 1909. From the amusement park to the aquarium as well as several restaurants, shops, and pubs, you can stay busy there all day. Relax near the Santa Monica Pier in a mid-century modern boho after the production.
