California Bay Area gigs vs L.A.

edited February 2017 in Sound

Hello world! I'm curious to know what the ratio of production sound gigs in the bay area compares to the number of gigs in L.A.. Seems like there is a heck of a lot more work down there obviously...


  • SF get's better rates on non-union gigs. There are a lot of mixers in LA

  • I'm pretty much a local in both LA and SF. In my experience it is easier to fight for your rate in SF. l I find most of the work in the Bay Area is more corporate. There is definitely more work in LA and it's more varied, but because of the competition there is much more low balling on rates.

  • SF work from my understanding is much more commercial/corporate work.
    LA is scripted, television, film, reality.
