Film Production Company Los Angeles, West Coast & California
The film industry has been huge for decades, and it seems that its growth can only go up – with online streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime leaping into the mainstream, films have become more and more accessible to a huge population as more people turn to online entertainment – in 2019 alone, over 159 million people viewed content on Netflix, much of this content being films. Netflix themselves have even begun to produce their own movies, with “Bird Box” being their most viewed original film in 2019 at an impressive 80 million views Needless to say, many people and companies are looking to get into this ever-growing industry, though producing a film is no easy task, especially if you don’t have many fleshed-out ideas in mind.

Film production in Los Angeles The process involved with producing a movie is often a long, complex one, and is not always linear as things can (and often do) go wrong. This is why having an LA film production company is vital, as you will have the help of experts to ensure that the process goes along as smoothly as possible and with fewer hiccups. In general, however, there are several main steps that production goes through to result in your full-fledged (hopefully award-winning) film. Development Before we can begin on any sort of filmmaking, a foundation to your movie must first be formed. First you must decide on an idea that your movie will be based on – this will include the story, themes, and characters, and is the most important aspect of film production. After all, without a gripping story, where’s the joy of watching a movie? The development of a story will also involve the creation of a script, which can be based off of an existing script, or a book if your movie is a book adaptation. If there is no existing story material to work on, then having a brief outline of a story will do too.
Pre-Production This is where things start to get a bit more serious, as pre-production is essentially where you start to prepare the film production crew for actual production. This will include a huge amount of fine details such as laying out a budget and schedule, carrying out creative planning, securing locations and props, hiring crew, carrying out auditions and rehearsing. It is basically the ‘planning and preparing’ stage, and is vital in ensuring a smoother production process later on, as you want to make sure that you don’t forget any details and don’t realise it until you’re halfway through production and it’s too late. Production Once everyone is hired and everything is secured (i.e. location, props, equipment, etc.), your Los Angeles film production company is now ready to begin the actual film production process. The camera can now start rolling and you can begin capturing the footage you need for your film. However, this is not the easiest part, as a huge amount of effort is still needed to ensure everything goes smoothly – communication between all crew and cast members is key in this regard, and efforts must be made to keep planning ahead and to ensure production is still sticking to the schedule and budget. Wrap This is the period immediately after the end of shooting where everything is dismantled – the location is cleared, the props are returned (in good order!) to the suppliers, and all of your footage is put “in the can” and is ready to be organised.
Post-Production So you have all of your snippets of footage piled into a hard drive – what now? How do you turn these into an actual movie? This is where post-production comes in; all of the footage your film production company has gathered will be gradually pieced together and edited. VFX and music, for example, will be added to the film, and minor touch-ups will be conducted to result in a clean, polished, final cut of the movie that’s ready to be shown to your audience!
