Do anyone know of a good sound stage that has a commercial air plane interior.  Thanks so much for your help.

Aero-Mock Ups, in North Hollywood. Really awesome people and great sets.

Almost everything is fly away so you can really get your camera in there. Also mostly pre-lit for practicals

 

 

'course depends on where you are.

I was once a minor functionary on a shoot at BA's training HQ, which is... eh, somewhere out west of London, in a simulated fuselage. I was a somewhat less minor functionary on a training production for EasyJet, for which we shot on a real 737 at Luton airport. Each evening, we chased the last crew off it, and in the morning were chased off by the next. 

 

If there's the slightest option to do so, always shoot in a mockup. Real, working passenger aircraft, and the tarmac they sit on, are far, far too expensive to sit around being movie sets, and this reality is expressed in a huge degree of inconvenience. 

 

And people will keep stealing the ground power unit, so all the lights keep going out, and then you have to run across the tarmac, chasing the guy towing the thing away, ducking the odd Airbus, and shouting at him to bring it back. And then you need someone who knows how the cockpit works to turn the external power back on. It is most unfun.

The image of you Phil, running across a Tarmac after a power cable is most wonderful.

Real life, as described, sounds like a very fun TV show. I would watch it. Please do it.

Im just curious, has anyone used greenscreen and virtual sets for aircraft interiors and how well did that work out, also how difficult was it to match the lighting and camera image? Can the composite image be made seemless, if so, what tricks were employed to pull it off?
