A behind-the-scenes glimpse of Episode 2 of "Ars Longa," a web series shot on location at studio/stage. Best filming locations, film friendly locations, film locations for rent, filming in LA

Producers are always on the lookout for the best filming locations in Los Angeles. If you’ve ever tried producing your own work, you know that finding affordable film locations for rent can be tough. Filming in LA isn’t always easy, but we strive to make our spaces film friendly locations. The team behind upcoming web series Ars Longa learned just how filming-friendly studio/stage can be.

Details about this series are held tightly under wraps for the moment, but Eric and his team were kind enough to let Jenn shoot some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and give the world a sneak peek about this twisted little mockumentary. Check it out!

About What We Do When We’re Dark:

These vlogs highlight happenings at the various StageCrafts venues – all film friendly locations – as well as share some of the fun things the owners do, both theatrical and mundane. Whether that’s filming in LA, developing our own new stories, or taking a break and unwinding with something fun and unusual, there’s always something interesting happening behind the scenes.

What do we mean by “dark”? Well, the TDF Theatre Dictionary tells us a playhouse (like studio/stage) is “lit” when there’s a show running in it—until the production shutters and the theatre is said to “go dark.” That’s almost never a good thing, at least as far as the building’s landlord is concerned. With luck, it won’t be long until a new show loads in and the theatre is lit again.

For the context of this vlog, “dark” means any time a performance or an event is not actually in progress on our stage, and our goal is to answer the burning question “what happens in The Room Where It Happens when there’s nothing happening?”
