About Us

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.

Over the past 100 years iconic clients such as Charlie Chaplin, Bing Crosby, Universal Pictures, Michael Jackson, Adidas, Nordstrom, Halston, Miramax, Dr. Dre, BBC, Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mitsubishi, Pharrell Williams, Justin Bieber, Beats by Dre, David Lynch, among others have graced these well-known stages.

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: brand new 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.


Mack Sennett Studios has the largest selection of flats and risers in Los Angeles. We stock standard frames ready to skin with raw primed luaun or your choice of material. Muslin flats are no problem.

With a fully equipped woodshop on site, our staging department can supply all of your platform needs. We stock wood parallel risers from 6 inches to four feet high in 6 inch intervals. Surface areas are 4×8′, 4×4′, and 2×8′.
