Lots of states like to claim it, but few places on the planet offer the truly amazing diversity of backdrops you’ll find in New York State. From filmdom’s favorite big city to the wonders of Niagara; historic Hudson Valley villages to rugged Adirondack peaks (the largest wilderness preserve in the U.S. outside of Alaska); from Brooklyn to Buffalo, waterfalls to Wall Street, farmland to factories, New York State has it all. And now, you can find these sites faster and easier than ever before, and here’s why:
IT STARTS WITH THE LIBRARY We have thousands of images in our locations library from all over the state, covering every time period and every look imaginable. That includes a wide range of state assets that are available for production use. Just drop us a line with what you’re looking for and we’ll get the conversation started. Click the map above to see a few samples from our extensive collection.
NEXT COMES THE SCOUT We have a dedicated locations department manager who offers full service assistance with research and, when appropriate, he’ll even hit the road and offer personal scouting assistance. We also work closely with a network of film offices and experienced professionals across the state so we can respond quickly and effectively to all location enquiries.
PICKED YOUR PERFECT SPOT? – WE HELP LOCK IT IN We will work with you to facilitate and coordinate dialogue with State agencies (Thruway Authority, State Parks, Department of Corrections, etc), federal agencies (National Parks, Homeland Security, Federal Aviation Administration, etc), regional and local authorities, and public and private institutions (museums, hospitals, prisons, colleges, etc) in every region throughout New York State.
PROBLEM? SOLVED! It's in our DNA to help solve challenges big and small that might arise on your production; communication is key, so if you ever feel you’ve run up against a brick wall, that you’re not finding something you need or that someone on the other end of the phone is unable to help, don’t hesitate to bring us into the mix. We’re always ready and be an advocate for filming in New York State.
