Frequently Asked Questions

New York City has served as the backdrop for countless iconic films, and it’s easy to see why. The city’s bustling streets, towering skyscrapers, and diverse neighborhoods offer a distinct setting for any story. So, when it comes to film shoot locations in NYC, filmmakers can choose from so many options, from traditional film studios to outdoor locations. Traditional studios are great for controlled environments, while outdoor locations provide a more natural setting and atmosphere.
Many professional filmmakers shoot in a studio. This is because the venue gives them more control over the environment, which allows them to capture high-quality footage that would be difficult to achieve on location. Shooting in a studio also offers filmmakers greater control over the lighting, which is crucial for crafting the right atmosphere and mood for a scene. By controlling the light, filmmakers can achieve stunning visuals. In addition, studios give filmmakers better control over the sound, making it easy to eliminate unwanted noise and produce a virtually flawless mix of sound effects and dialogue.
Among the most popular film shoot locations are natural light studios and cyclorama studios. Natural light studios offer a unique combination of convenience and quality. With access to abundant sunlight and industrial design features, these spaces provide a setting that is both aesthetically pleasing and conducive to capturing vibrant images. When scouting out natural light studio spaces in NYC, look for features like ample space to move equipment around, as well as flexible layout options and cool views in or outside of the studio. These factors can determine how suitable a given space is for the vision you have in mind.
A cyclorama studio, often referred to as a cyc wall or infinity wall, is a type of film production location that features seamless white walls and a floor that combine to create an infinite background for items in the scene. Keep in mind cyclorama studios come in different sizes, so you'll want to rent one with the proper dimensions for your project. In addition, a good cyc wall studio will have great lighting that won't cast harsh shadows on your actors or set pieces.
The borough of Brooklyn is a popular destination for filmmakers from all over the world. But before you can start shooting your film in Brooklyn, you’ll need to obtain a permit from the city. Filming without a permit in Brooklyn can result in costly fines, so it’s crucial to make sure you have all your ducks in a row before you begin rolling the camera. For more affordable options, consider renting hourly film shoot locations, which can accommodate most budgets. These spaces are ideal for independent filmmakers, and venues range from video studios to green screens to lofts and warehouses.

Midtown Penthouse Photo/Video Studio
as soundproof as possible by adding extra sound-absorbent materials. He was very responsive leading up to the booking and during our 3 day film shoot he was always a text away and available when needed. If one is willing to be flexible with an occasional firetruck or honking car...

Beautiful 4200 sf NoMad / Chelsea Photo / Video Studio, 2 Shooting Areas, Exposed Brick, High Ceilings, North Light
The space is as advertised! There are multiple spots that are suitable to film, and there’s room to create multiple sets. Street noise was lower than expected, so I chalk it up to Friday morning quiet. Regardless, I think you can make this location work for a variety of...
