Outdoor Set


an outdoor area with an open horizon used for filming natural motion-picture scenery against a sky background.

Outdoor sets may be located on the premises of a studio or outside the studio (in the countryside, in areas with a low noise level and a diverse landscape). To screen out noise, outdoor sets are fenced off or divided into individual filming areas by strips of closely planted trees and bushes. Set pools, “artificial skylines”, and similar permanent scenery structures are sometimes constructed on outdoor sets.

Outdoor sets at studios are gradually losing their importance because of high-rise construction in the areas surrounding the studios, which is extremely difficult to conceal during filming. Increasing use is being made of on-location shooting rather than filming on permanent outdoor sets in the countryside.
