Meg was a great host! She was so accommodating for our shoot and helped us every step of the way. She gave us recommendations and advice for making things go smoothly and let us use every room we needed. The house was beautiful and the shots came out incredibly cinematic and had the perfect feeling of nostalgia that we were going for. We would absolutely recommend this location for anyone with a music video, short film, TV show or any scene needing a beautiful, wooden nostalgic house as a set. The neighborhood is beautiful as well! Thank you Meg.

Meg is so accommodating!! The house has so many lovely rooms. We used nearly all of them. Lots of space in the kitchen and dining room for people. One note- we needed some time to load in and the neighbors were very vocal and called the permit office if even one more car than allowed was parked and unloading gear. The limit is 4 cars total. Including the cars that park in the driveway. Otherwise, for our shoot the neighbors were very patient.

Tips on How to Organize Film Shoot Locations in South Pasadena

South Pasadena is a vibrant and busy city, filled with endless possibilities for an amazing film shoot. However, organizing a location for shooting can be quite daunting. The following list of tips will help you navigate the complexities of prepping a film shoot location in South Pasadena and ensure your production is successful.

  • Research Neighborhoods: Before renting a space, research the neighborhood and think about what type of environment you need to create the desired atmosphere for your film shoot. Consider factors such as parking, noise levels, traffic patterns, and access points to determine if the area is suitable for your needs.

  • Scout Locations: Once you’ve narrowed down potential locations, scout them out to make sure they meet all of your criteria. Take into account natural lighting conditions, surrounding areas that could interfere with filming or affect the sound quality (such as nearby construction sites), any restrictions imposed by homeowners or businesses in the area, etc.

  • Hire Local Crews and Equipment Rentals: South Pasadena offers many talented local crews and equipment rentals including camera operators, sound engineers, grips, and costume designers, and rental vehicles, which could save you some money compared to bringing your own team from outside the city limits.

  • Clean Up and Restore: When shooting has wrapped up at a specific location, it’s important that you clean up thoroughly and leave everything exactly as it was before filming began. This includes restoring any damage caused during shooting and returning borrowed items to their original owners (if applicable). This will ensure everyone involved has a positive experience working with you and your team on future projects!
