Los Angeles Prison Location


New member
I'm planning on filming my thesis project in late March, early April, and am looking to find a prison with an execution chamber and preferably a dark hopeless feel. If anyone has used one or knows of one in the greater L.A. area I would greatly appreciate help. Thank you.

You might start by calling some Studios in Burbank. Or what one Yale student did was build his set in his basement. I know you might not have a basement but you might know someone that does.

I just made a film about a guy in prison. Really heard finding a place. I ended up building mine out of paper which worked great and was cheaper and controlled. You can see the result at matthewkalish.com; click The Inmate. Good luck.
