With fifteen stages of varying sizes throughout LA, Occidental Studios is committed to excellence, providing support services to meet the diversified needs of motion picture, television, commercial and Internet productions.
Our state-of-the-art stages range in size from 1,000 to 43,000 square feet. Multiple locations in and around Hollywood offer cost effective facilities that will satisfy the varying needs of today’s filmmakers. We offer great choices and the highest level of customer service in the business.
Built in 1913, our main lot on Occidental Boulevard is Hollywood’s oldest continuously operated shooting studio. We’re part of Hollywood’s history and we treasure our ties to the by-gone era of great filmmakers, including Cecil B. De Mille, D.W. Griffith, and Mary Pickford, who first worked at the studio as an actress and independent filmmaker in its early years. While valuing our past, we’ve also adapted to the present day needs of our clientele. Over the past two decades, our main lot has been transformed and upgraded, including adding a new multi-million dollar, four story, state-of-the-art sound stage and production center. This gated 3½ acre studio lot houses three other sound stages totaling another 20,000 sq.’ and is among a total of a dozen Occidental sound stages located throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
As early as 1995, Occidental Studios believed digital technology would launch a new paradigm in content creation. Occidental’s early contribution to “Hollywood’s Digital Revolution” was to create, test, and rent the original “Smart Stage” facility.
By 2002, the company was offering filmmakers a robust, easy to use, and affordable system that gave client’s the ability to track all 7-axis’ of camera movement, and then use that 4k tracking data to drive a background plate. This virtual compositing environment supported digitally generated photo-real background plates, and was twice showcased by the Directors Guild of America’s Digital Committee.
Occidental Entertainment views the sound-stage as a cauldron of creative energy that can be enhanced and made more capable through the application of digital technology and connectivity. Occidental Technologies continues to bring innovative and relevant services that enhance the shooting experience.
For the past three decades, Occidental Studios has supplied Lighting & Grip equipment as a related service to our studio clients. The overwhelming success of this production service has prompted Occidental to expand its inventory with an 8 figure inventory of state-of-the-art studio and location equipment.
Supporting our studio clients with a large, modern, well-maintained, and diverse equipment inventory is just where it starts, because Occidental’s Lighting team understands the connection between the artist and the tools. Lighting units, like the brushes in the hands of a great artist, come in many forms and with great variation and subtlety. Filmmakers “paint” with light. We care about the success of those who choose us, and we pride ourselves on our ability to stay connected to our client’s needs…, making changes in equipment lists and delivery dates…, and living under the budget constraints of modern productions.
Most of all, providing great service is a matter of staff, and Occidental Lighting & Grip has populated its operations with people who have amassed vast experience and demonstrated a true love-of-craft. Whether a large, complicated, long-running TV series or feature film; or simply a one day still shoot, Occidental Lighting & Grip will approach your project with the same degree of focus and professional support – always aware of the ever-changing demands of production.
