A Historic Los Angeles Soundstage, Then and Now

In the last century, so much of Hollywood’s production methods have changed. The technology used in motion pictures is well beyond what anyone could’ve imagined decades ago.

To make the best out of any movie, TV, or photo shoot, you need a historic Los Angeles soundstage like ours, which is fully equipped with everything. In this blog, we’ll lay out what Mack Sennett Studios can offer. Our location has been a timeless entertainment industry staple for many reasons.

Comparing the production used silent films that were developed in Mack Sennett Studios in 1916 to the type of equipment and technology needed to produce a motion picture in 2019, the production methods would be unrecognizable. Withstanding the development and keeping up with the pace of technological evolution is one of Mack Sennett Studio’s best features, and offering a sound stage that continues to expand it’s capabilities with state of the art equipment is how the studio has remained a timeless institution throughout all these years.

Our facilities offer an extensive range and availability of equipment rentals beginning with grip and electric and production supplies, through an extensive variety of parts and pieces needed to fulfill your production.
