Stella Self Tape Studios

FREE Parking & Getting to Your Appointment:

One parking space per booking is FREE through Stella Self Tape Studios. Please do not arrive more than 5-10 minutes before your appointed time as we book appointments back to back! Parking is in the back of the building entering on Schrader Blvd, between Sunset Blvd and Selma Ave (it is the open air lot that has a sign that says $20 but don't worry -it's free for us!). Please tell the attendant you are there for STELLA SELF TAPE and park where directed, or if no one is there come on through and park where ever suits. Additionally, there is plenty of metered street parking available running at about $1 an hour. Please check the signs for restrictions. If catching public transport the number 2 bus stops right outside our building and our studio is a 10 minute downhill walk from the Hollywood/vine red train line. 


Once you have parked please walk back to Sunset Blvd, to the front of the building on 6525 w Sunset Blvd and look for the entrance between the two big planters/next to the plaque saying "the first ever EMMYs was held in this building".


Please ring the intercom for 101 CALL and state your name. You will be buzzed into the building. Take a seat in the lobby. Someone will come get you. Please do not knock on the studio door - we are probably recording!
