Mack Sennett Studios is one of Los Angeles’ most unique stage and still photography rental studios. Built in 1916 as a silent movie studio, it has hosted hundreds of commercials, music videos, feature films, industrials and recently internet productions.

A partial list of past clients/projects that have graced our stages include the likes of Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Ronald Reagan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Donna Summer, Dr Dre, Anita Baker, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Adidas, Jerry Lee Lewis, Celine Dion, Yamaha, NIN, McCann Erickson and hundreds of others.

Stage 1, a 5,000 sq ft soundproofed soundstage, with a 60′ clear span, 100 foot length and 23 feet to the catwalks and adjustable lighting grids, is a fast and easy rig. It has ample power, a 100′ U shaped cyclorama, a 7′ deep pit in the floor for tricky effect shots, and accommodates cars.

Stage 2, with 2,000 sq ft of shooting space and a 50 foot L shaped cyclorama is ideal for small productions and still photo shoots with ample daylight or fully blacked out.

Each stage comes equipped with their own separate support facilities: bathrooms, kitchens, dressing, hair / make-up areas and lounges.

In addition to studio rentals, Mack Sennett Studios also provides flats, scenic backdrops, risers and a well stocked mill for set construction on site. The 12,000 foot basement offers endless possibilities for suspense and atmosphere.
