Los Angeles is a beautiful city (and the second most popular after NYC), which offers a lot to anyone who decides to go there. Are you taking a leap of faith in your filming career? Or have you already established a name for yourself in the City of Angels? Whatever your situation is, Tagvenue will try to fulfill your need to book the perfect filming venue. You’ll be happy to hear that we have options near the main landmarks as well as on the outskirts of the city. Do you want to film near the Hollywood Sign? Perhaps you fancy exploring the Hall of Fame after the shoot, and seeing your favorite celebrity’s star? In your free time, take advantage of LA having the best of both worlds, and take a trip to the nearest beach. Relax on the coastline, which runs between Malibu and Long Beach, and enjoy the sun.
We could go on and on about what to do in LA, but we know that you’ve come here for a reason.
Here at Tagvenue, we try to step into your shoes when choosing a venue. We understand that filmmaking is a lengthy process, which can be quite stressful. And we also know that one of the most crucial aspects of pre-production is deciding where to film. Search for appropriate areas, as this is critical in order to avoid any problems for you and your staff later on. Let’s take a look at the key points to consider when selecting the ideal site for your film shoot.
First of all - know your script inside out
Everything in your movie, which means the setting also, is determined by the script. The first step in site scouting is to know your screenplay inside and out. Check which places fit your filming description and ask the scriptwriter what they think of the location that you are planning to choose, or have already chosen.
Secondly - scout locations at the right times
As the time of day varies, so does the ambience and vibe of a site. Don’t search for good daylight studios, if you’re planning to shoot a scene in the middle of the night. The location can look very different in the morning, and have a completely different feel at night. Of course, we don’t mean closed studios with artificial lighting, but definitely check all those outdoor spots which you fancy. Something that could look unappealing during the daytime can be a wonderful spot for filming when the sun goes down.
Finally - do a necessities check
If you’re filming a scene in a pub, why don’t you book the Upstairs Lounge at The Fox Hollywood located in Hollywood? It’s got a laid-back atmosphere, and is a cozy, comfortable place. It’s private enough that you won’t have to worry about too many passersby. It’s perfect for quiet scenes and dialogues, but if you’re looking to be louder, then bar fights as well.
Have you been looking for a beautiful studio? We found the place you need. Book the Studio at Artsy Apartment Studio Space, which is equipped with everything you could possibly want, and it’s all included in the price. It’s perfect for interviews, cooking shows, fitness programs, music videos and many more. Look for it in the Arts District.
We don’t lie when we say that we have it all. Would you like to film on a yacht? We come to you with more than one! Check out the Entire Yacht at 76’ Monte Fino, and many others on our website. The entire space is just for you and your film crew. You get to film a scene in the likes of Wolf of Wall Street, and feel luxurious for the day. Look for it on Marina del Rey.
The price range, as always, is quite a big one. We have many budget friendly options, where you can expect to pay as little as $40 to $150 per hour. There are also a couple of more expensive options in the $200 - $1000 zone. And of course there are very expensive options reaching even as much as $30000. (All data from Tagvenue.)
The center of LA is completely filled with venues, so if that’s the area of the city that you’re looking for - you’re in for a treat. However, if you’re searching for more locations in different parts of Los Angeles, we can recommend going north and checking out areas of Glendale and Panama City. Or if you’re looking to be closer to the beach then go west towards Marina del Rey.
There are many different locations in which you can film. There are indoor as well as outdoor options, and we strongly recommend looking through our website to see some non-standard locations. You can film in a studio, restaurant, rooftop, terrace or a patio, and of course many others. Check Tagvenue’s website to pick your favorite.
FilmLA is the official film office of Los Angeles. The permit can be obtained by filling out an application form via FilmLA’s Online Permit System. Don’t forget to fill it out a minimum of 4 working days before filming.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
