How 2 Build Movie Sets

Building sets doesn't have to be time consuming but it will always require materials and skill to make them look good. They also need to be safe and solid so walls down wobble like they used to do on cheap TV shows.

There's a balance between locations and sets with pros and cons for each as follows:

 

Sets Locations
Control sound and lighting Less control
Have to be built Existing
Can look cheap Can look amazing
Need space for set Use location when you need it
Interior light and sound quality  Interior or exterior
Control over environment Much less control
Build it and film Need permissions and releases
