Finding the perfect sound stage Los Angeles has available, to record your feature film, television series, commercial or music video can be a challenging task. However, the flexible, expandable and professional sound stage options at Goya Studios are designed to all-inclusively cater to all of your production needs. With all the extras such as private parking, VIP lounges, production offices and much more, read on to find out why you should use a sound stage and how to find the best sound stage Los Angeles has to offer.
A sound stage is a soundproofed set that’s specifically designed for shooting movies and television shows. They’re most often located in a specially designed film studio that has a large open space and high ceilings to allow film crews to design and build practically any type of set.
Because sound stages have excellent soundproofing that eliminates or minimises any interference from outside noise, they allow producers to simultaneously record production sound while the images are being captured. This reduces the need to lay down extra sound tracks or dub the film during post-production and usually results in a more seamless, natural-looking final output.
It’s important that a sound stage isn’t confused with what’s called a silent stage. Unlike sound stages, silent stages AREN’T soundproofed. This means that the actor dialogue, sound effects and natural scene noises usually can’t be recorded along with the images because if it were, you’d more than likely be able to hear the natural interference of surrounding traffic and environmental noise. As such, sound stages are ideal for filming dialogue scenes in things such as films, television series and commercials. The best sound stages Los Angeles has to offer also incorporate other facilities including hair and makeup rooms, production offices, bathrooms and kitchens so that your film crew can produce scenes quickly and efficiently with minimal interruption.

Choosing an indoor location to shoot your next production isn’t as simple as finding an empty building that’s advertised as a sound stage. In fact, there’s a few technical aspects that are crucial to ensuring that you’ve secured the highest quality sound stage Los Angeles is offering. Before you commit to renting any Los Angeles soundstage, always visit the space to ensure that it’s fit for your needs. While it’s important to consider if there’s enough space to house your set and crew, you should also ensure that the layout allows you to easily organise and move equipment and gear around. If you’re bringing things such as custom lighting or large scene props, you’ll more than likely need even bigger, wide-opening doors to make access easy. If the loading dock is located right next to the sound stage, this will be an added bonus when it comes to being able to set up and pack up gear quickly.

However, to be able to reap the benefits of filming on sound stages in Los Angeles, quality soundproofing is a must! This is something that can be difficult to assess without having a good knowledge of soundproofing techniques but is essential to ensure that your shoot runs smoothly and that your final sound quality is ideal. To help you to assess how good the sound-proofing is in any Los Angeles sound studio, start by looking at the surrounding area. Even with the best technology, it’s not always possible to completely block out very loud noises and vibrations from things such as trains passing nearby. Once you’re at the studio, spend some time in the sound studio without any noise. The environment should be fully silent. However, because a short visit won’t give you the complete picture, feel free to ask the sound stage representative for feedback from past clients as well.
