Frequently Asked Questions

Renting a video studio in Chicago is one of the best ways to ensure the quality of your movie. Whether it is an interview that needs soundproof setting and a plain background or a complex blockbuster with green screen shots to edit in post production a video studio is where the journey begins.
Video studios come in a variety of size, budget, and technology types. Some are simple affairs with space, lighting, and a few accessories. Other studios come with the latest technology and are the places Hollywood calls on when they visit the Windy City for video productions. Commercials, music videos, documentaries, Netflix specials, and feature films are just a few of the genres that benefit from partnering with Chicago video studio rentals.
Video studio rentals are about more than just the space or equipment, however. Industry professionals in Chicago have decades of production experience you can draw from. They can help you establish the main ideas of the video, recommend scenic locations outside of their studio, help with location scouting, and have production staff for hire to assist in grading and other editing tasks.
Some studios offer their services off-site as well. They can create mobile studios in an instant with backgrounds, screens, generators, and trucks full of production equipment. Mobile video studio suites are what news, documentary, and sports videographers rely on when the action can't be brought indoors very easily.
You may also need a lounge area for the cast, production staff, and visitors to relax. Couches, water fountains, snacks, lighting, and charging ports should be a part of your video studio rental. Some studios may even have a kitchen with a fridge and microwave if the venue is large enough. High speed internet and streaming technology are essential for live broadcasts like corporate shoots and panel discussions.
The best places to find a video studio in Chicago will also include technology. Cinema cameras, flat walls, cranes, cinema lenses, light modifiers, and other tools of the trade will help you sculpt light and sound in just the right way. Many, but not all, video studios offer these, so be sure to inquire before committing to a space. Fortunately, as one of America's entertainment hubs, Chicago video studios are never poorly equipped when it comes to technology!
