The Vista Story
Our facility, technology, and talent will impress you. But it’s our vision and ability to elevate everything you do that will make us your trusted partner. Vista Studios was created to be much more than just another production facility.
Decades of live production experience
Our team members have been key players in some of broadcasting’s most notable live productions. However, we identified a growing and critical need for innovation and simplification in the industry. Vista Studios is the only studio in Los Angeles designed, built, and optimized for producing shows with future-forward content creators. Clients like Apple, Discovery, Facebook, and HBO are testing the boundaries of live production, and only Vista Studios can make such industry-advancing ideas a reality.
The only thing that’s classic about Vista Studios is our location–Playa Vista, California. Before it became the neighborhood at the center of Silicon Beach, much of the land belonged to Howard Hughes, where he built massive aircraft hangars and the world’s longest private runway. Hughes eventually abandoned this land, but not before he constructed and flew the infamous Spruce Goose. After Hughes moved out, Hollywood and the tech industry moved in. The Spruce Goose hangar became a soundstage used for big blockbuster films. Parts of Ironman, Titanic, and Avatar were all filmed within the bounds of Playa Vista. Now, our vibrant neighborhood is home to tech giants such as Google, Facebook, YouTube, Microsoft, EA Sports, Belkin, and Yahoo, to name a few.
You’ll find us less than 5 miles from LAX, just off the 405 in the heart of Silicon Beach. Our neighborhood is beautiful, walkable, and we’re surrounded by amenities that will make your crew and talent feel at home. Let's Connect

Producers Prefer Vista Studios
Vista Studios has built the most efficient and cost-effective production model in the industry. That means producers don’t have to work so hard.
All of our systems are pre-built and thoroughly tested–which means no technical setup and strike costs for you.

We offer an end-to-end service model so producers can be more productive.
- Leverage a single facility to house your production. (Pay 1 invoice instead of 7)

- Depend on an experienced on-staff technical team that knows live production better than anyone in the LA production market.
