WHAT IS A SOUND STAGE ANYWAY?

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.

LOS ANGELELS SOUND STAGE BENEFITS

Shooting a film or television series on location isn’t always the best option as a lot of time is wasted waiting for the right time of day, suitable weather conditions and the surrounding natural noise to be minimized. As such, choosing to base production in the best sound stage Los Angeles has to offer will allow you to maximize these benefits:

  • Clean audio recording – When you use a sound stage in Los Angeles, you’ll be able to record any dialogue and natural scene noises as they occur without having any interference from outside noises. This means that if you WANT to be able to hear a plane flying overhead or have chatter in the background, you easily add these sounds and won’t have to suddenly stop shooting because a jackhammer starts up nearby.
  • Optimum lighting control – Any great Los Angeles sound stage will be set up to allow you to fully control the lighting as you require. This means that you’ll be able to effectively make it look like it’s the time of day while being able to make sure that shadows don’t fall over your subjects, disrupting the perfect shot.
  • Eliminate the weather – Filming indoors means that you won’t have to battle with the elements or have to wait for the perfect conditions to shoot. It also prevents the wind, rain and/or heat from wreaking havoc on the hair and makeup of your actors and actresses so that their fresh looks can be more easily maintained.
  • Flexibility with camera shots – Because sound studios are located in a large, open space, you’ll have the flexibility to be able to move the camera around to exactly where you require without having to contend with on-location surroundings. This allows you to capture the perfect shots without having to move the entire scene by which time the lighting has probably changed, spoiling your shot anyway.
  • Greater comfort – As Goya Studios Los Angeles sound studios are located indoors in a climate controlled environment, your actors, actresses and film crew will be much more comfortable filming in the height of summer or the middle of winter. They’ll also be able to make use of easy access to all the facilities they need and expect including bathrooms, showers, kitchens and waiting lounges.
  • Faster production times – Ultimately, choosing to film in a sound studio means that for all of the reasons above, you’ll be able to record your film or television series in much less time. Without having to wait for the perfect conditions while being able to shoot day and night, if necessary, you’ll be able to reduce production costs and get your piece to air sooner.

What to Look for in a Los Angeles Sound Stage Rental

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.
