ABOUT OUR STAGES AND BACKLOT
Whether you need to do a photo shoot for a few hours or shoot a motion picture for a month, we have thought through all of the details in order to accommodate your individual needs. With over 35 years in the film and video industry we have developed a facility where producers can feel at home.
Conveniently located near the 78 freeway yet nestled in the quiet hills of Vista California, our studio houses one of the largest green screen cycloramas in San Diego County. Our beautifully well kept and private facility has been called a producers paradise. Even with the ability and amenities to host A list actors, we continue to maintain some of the most competitive pricing in the area.
For film makers this is a one stop shop which can save you a lot of time and money. Much of what you may need is right on site. We have an art department for set design, a mill shop for set construction, flat and set rentals, a production office and a well appointed talent trailer.
Surrounding the stage is a 5 acre backlot with varied landscapes and unique features, AND for no extra charge we throw in the most spectacular weather anywhere in the world! While on the property you will notice that you are taken care of with the utmost care, that’s because we like to treat all of our clients like honored guests.

Inspired Images Studio is a great San Diego alternative to larger LA sound stages. I had the pleasure of DP’ing an infomercial shoot for Waldorf Crawford at Inspired Images and it went off without a hitch. The shoot was on the larger side with over 20 crew members plus talent and clients, so we were concerned with how Inspired Images could accommodate us. Well I was really impressed! They really went the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of.
Not only did we rent the stage, we also utilized their very talented art director, Lauren Fehlhaber and construction lead man Woody Woodburn. Lauren first worked up creative set plans which Woody expertly executed. There was a huge cost saving for us to have Art and the stage at the same location.
We’ll definitely come back!
Scott Leslie – ES Productions
This was such a great location, the Inspired Images Team went above and beyond for our little crew. The prices are AMAZING for what you get. Beautiful studio space, beautiful outdoor space and I can not express enough how great the team was. We look forward to our next shoot at their location.
Lauren, Jim, Ryan, and Woody were the best. I had the refreshing pleasure to work with them and their studio on a feature film we were working on. They were affordable, very responsive, and offer a wide-range of services. The Studio is ideal for sound and is private. They are all very professional, lots of fun to work with and very knowledgeable about filming needs. I highly recommend them. Do not go anywhere without looking into Inspired Images Company first! You won’t regret it..
