The Essential Guide to Building a Home Studio

You’ve done it! You’ve finally decided to build a home studio and gain the benefits of a professional and versatile video area conveniently located in your own house. But before jumping into the project, take a few minutes to review the important factors that will make your studio stand out.

A well-built studio is indispensable to perfecting your shooting skills in a controlled environment. It’s ideal for producing professional interviews, experimenting with chromakey, and gaining more control over lighting. A home studio offers independence, since you won’t need to rent or borrow another studio, and convenience, since you can shoot great video without leaving your house. Gone will be the days of constant setup and teardown as you invade your living area with a mess of paper rolls, reflector stands, and extension cords. You’ll finally have a place devoted to keeping all your video accessories and supplies in one handy location.

However, jumping into any kind of big building project can be daunting—especially when the project is as complicated as turning an ordinary room into a video studio. You want to be sure that no significant safety or aesthetic considerations have been overlooked. Otherwise, you risk future problems and hazards, like annoying reverberation that’s expensive to fix, or the poorly installed light that threatens to drop on someone’s head.
