Werkartz is the Prime Location for Filming, Photography & Events in Los Angeles.

Werk Studios is a massive historic warehouse space for filming, photography and events in the trendy arts district of downtown Los Angeles.

The gritty, industrial location features over 15,000 square feet of space. Within, the warehouse is broken into three separate and highly versatile filming and photography rental studios.  These stark warehouse stages are set apart by their weathered aesthetic, bountiful natural light, and polished concrete floors. Production assets include a built-in infinity background, ample crew parking, and a variety of sets. Additionally, a rooftop space opens onto a skyline view of the Los Angeles financial district. On site, a 16’ roll-up bay door and 20’ elephant doors give production the capability to load fully built sets or large elements into the space.

The on-trend Werk Studios warehouse is a trusted location for Hollywood’s high-end movie, television, music video and commercial filming.  It’s a perfect location for still photography and creative projects, and an iconic backdrop for high fashion and celebrity warehouse photoshoots.
