When you’re setting out to produce a polished and professional-looking video, you don’t always need a videography education or the latest and greatest equipment for successful footage. Sometimes, all you need is a controlled space to create! While we’re all about filming on-location when the circumstances are right, there are actually some major benefits to choosing a studio environment.
Keep reading to find out the many different benefits of filming your videos in a studio.
Control Over Your Environment
One of the biggest advantages of shooting video inside a studio is that you have complete control over the production environment. With a studio, you won’t have to worry about things like weather, traffic noises, or onlookers interfering with your video and audio.
Not to mention, with a studio, your production crew has the ability to easily regulate all of the lighting conditions. This means that every aspect of the scene is perfectly illuminated—and you don’t even have to think about the suns’ positioning. Indoor filming also ensures your videos’ audio is clear, crisp, and free of outside noises.
Ability to Create the Desired Look
The cool thing about most production studios is that they are typically equipped with a “green screen” that facilitates the display of video footage from another source. This technology basically allows you to insert any backdrop you want in the background of your production.
As a result, you can stage a shot where it looks like you’re speaking from a football field or beach when in reality, you’re standing in a studio. With the ability to create the desired look—no matter if it’s special effects or simply displaying a website behind you—a studio will often give you the upper hand when it comes to visuals.
A Singular Location
Another great thing about filming in a studio? Everything you need is in one convenient spot. You don’t have to worry about relocating your crew or equipment when you have a designated studio to work with. Everything will be set up and ready to go when it’s time for shoot day without having to think about weather conditions or commuting.
Additionally, studios make it a lot easier to bring in large equipment like cranes or dollies that can be set up and left unsupervised. You don’t have this luxury when filming out at a location, as equipment will need to be moved back and forth with each day of production. When you film at a studio, you can lock up at the end of the day and know that everything inside is safe and ready to be used the next day.
The Technology Factor
There’s no doubt that a studio is more technologically efficient than filming out on location. While it may not be something people immediately factor in when considering filming a professional video, there are all types of technological benefits available in a studio that can be difficult to find in a location.
A studio provides better access to necessary filming equipment, not to mention an adequate amount of electrical power and outlets are available—something every film crew needs to be successful.
