Frequently Asked Questions




Discover sound stage rentals in Chicago

Now that your film has a script and a cast of actors ready to begin, it's time to find a sound stage for audio recording. Sound stages ensure crisp audio and remove any distractions from the surroundings. Rentals in Chicago come by the hour, half day, or full day rental periods. And they aren't useful for filmmakers alone. Musicians, actors, interviewers, and other creative professionals whose work requires a space tailored to capture perfect audio all seek sound stages. So what is a sound stage and where can you find them in Chicago?

Renting a soundproof stage in Chicago

Sound stages (soundproof stages) are an essential part of producing any film or television series. The room is soundproofed to prevent any unwanted sounds from intruding from without. Sound stages are essential for capturing dialogue between actors and ensure clean recordings that background audio can then be added to in post production.
Soundstages for commercials in Chicago are as technologically well equipped as you'll find anywhere in the country. Many include green screens for mixing webcasts and live broadcasts, editing tools, and other production equipment. The very best Chicago sound stages even include staff to assist in your production. Set up and break down staff, camera operators, and other talented people who shoulder some of the burden and speed up production.

The best professional sound stages in Chicago

Begin your search with professional stage rentals like Space Stage Studios. Available for 6 and 12-hour rentals, the studio has experience recording productions of all sizes, including partnerships with international brands. You have the option of working inside any of their five studios. Including a 14,000 sq. ft outdoor gated courtyard studio with a raised stage for presenters and/or music.
Space Stage Studios is also a fully equipped equipment rental facility, so even if you don't record using one of their sets they remain an invaluable partner for Chicago sound engineers and filmmakers.
Chicago sound stages come in a variety of size, budget, and equipment styles. Some are small rooms that are just large enough for a pair of interviewers and the camera crew. While others are set up in warehouses, repurposed factory lofts, and other spacious buildings thousands of square feet in area. Extra-large sound stages can be divided further into individual stages. Whether you are creating a Hollywood blockbuster, an intimate interview, or recording a music performance, you'll find that production sound stages in Chicago are an invaluable place to work!
