Filming location

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Location shoot for The Black Dahlia, June 2005, on Hollywood Boulevard.

A filming location is a place where some or all of a film or television series is produced, in addition to or instead of using sets constructed on a movie studio backlot or soundstage.[1] In filmmaking, a location is any place where a film crew will be filming actors and recording their dialog. A location where dialog is not recorded may be considered a second unit photography site[citation needed]. Filmmakers often choose[citation needed]to shoot on location because they believe that greater realism can be achieved in a "real" place; however, location shooting is often[citation needed] motivated by the film's budget. Many films shoot interior scenes on a sound stage and exterior scenes on location.

Types of locations

There are two main types of locations:

Many types of movies were initially filmed on sound stages in Hollywood, the movie neighborhood, before the development of location shooting.


Video cameras originally designed for television broadcast were large and heavy, mounted on special pedestals and wired to remote recorders in separate rooms. As technology improved, out-of-studio video recording was possible with compact video cameras and portable video recorders; a detachable recording unit could be carried to a shooting location. Although the camera itself was compact, the need for a separate recorder made on-location shooting a two-person job.[2]

Substitute locations

It is common for films or television series to be set in one place, but filmed in another, usually for reasons of economy or convenience, but sometimes because the substitute location looks more historically appropriate.

Some substitute filming locations, and the corresponding film setting, include:
