Frequently Asked Questions

Consider renting a house for a film shoot in Chicago

House rentals have become affordable and easy to come by now that everyone's looking to advertise their space. People often think about parties and vacation spaces but there is a huge demand for filming spots. Just think of all of the times you've seen a contemporary living room, kitchen, or bedroom in a feature film. A picturesque house is foundational to telling a good visual story. So why not look into Chicago houses available for film productions? Whether your story is set in the quiet suburbs and requires a lawn and dog fence or you need a Gold coast mansion set on Lake Michigan's shores, the Windy City has both of these and a lot more to offer.
Just remember that of all the filming locations out there, houses tend to be the least well equipped with accessory technology. The exception here are houses specifically designed for filmmaking crews. Otherwise, look into equipment rentals like audio-visual equipment, light modifiers, and other tools.

Raw warehouses for film shoots in Chicago

Chicago has been a manufacturing industrial powerhouse for a very long time. The city is dotted with warehouses in various states of preservation. Some were decommissioned just a few years ago while others last saw business when prohibition was still a thing. Raw warehouses are in high demand for filmmakers because they are a blank canvas for cinematography. They offer huge amounts of space for large production equipment, loads of staff, and multiple sets. Not to mention room for trailers and parking, which is always in short supply in a major city like Chicago.

Explore rooftop film shoot locations in Chicago

Houses are some of the best indoor shooting locations for cinematography but what happens when your script demands an outdoor venue? Why not check out a rooftop location for filming? So many of Chicago's skyscrapers have bars, restaurants, lounges, and viewing areas on top of them. The perfect spot to capture a romantic story framed by twinkling night lights and a skyline background.
Rooftop shooting locations are often entertainment venues but that's not a problem. They cater to most live events; parties, dancing, conferences, dinners, and even filmmaking. One thing to consider is how long you'll need to rent the venue for since most dining establishments expect rentals of just one or a few nights. Filming a feature film could take longer. With that in mind, you're really spoiled for film shoot choices here in the Windy City!
