Studio 1289 was conceived to address the lack of VIP studio facilities in Los Angeles. We recognize the importance of having a private outdoor shooting location paired with efficient studio space. Often times subjects favor a private place to work over a busy and crowded multi-studio facility; a place where the members of his or her team have ample space to relax while the shooting takes place but still be unobtrusively on-hand when needed.

Previously, Studio 1289 was only available on an invitation basis. Now we open our doors to accommodate you and your upcoming projects! Our facility is two blocks from Beverly Hills in the Sunset Strip area of West Hollywood; close to everything essential yet a world away. We have a convenient loading area in the back and a private parking lot right down the street for your entire crew.
