Located within Mack Sennett Studios, one of the oldest remaining sound stages in Los Angeles, Point Blank LA resonates with over a hundred years of cultural history. However, while we regularly run tours of our LA school for potential students, we appreciate that getting first-hand insight into the environs we offer may not be so convenient for everyone. For those who are eager to get an inside look at PBLA but can’t make the trip in person, this virtual tour is an attempt to capture the unique, creative environment, the facilities that we offer and importantly, what the student experience is actually like here at Point Blank Los Angeles. We’ve recently added a brand new studio to our complex within Mack Sennett, with each workstation fully equipped with top of the range production tools for students to work with.
Head to Point Blank’s LA course page to enrol now. PBLA is based at the newly restored Mack Sennett Studios in Silver Lake, a historic sound stage and studio complex. It’s now a hub for the music, fashion and art worlds.
