Top Five Places in WA Where We Think a Movie Should Be Made
Admit it when you think of places to film a movie Washington State doesn't immediately come to mind. But it should because there's plenty of beautiful places to make an epic movie.
THINK ABOUT WHERE YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A MOVIE?
So if you could grab a camera and a camera crew where would you go to film that first scene? If you are a resident of the state you probably know a half dozen places on the top of mind that you'd start that film. Plenty of places to go for beautiful views right? So many places where you could see Mt. Rainier in the background.
FROM MOUNTAINSCAPES TO WATERFRONT LOCATIONS THERE'S PLENTY OF PLACES IN WA
They could be looking for the perfect waterfront location to shoot a pirate film, or maybe a rigid mountain landscape for a supervillain's evil hideout.
For decades Washington state officials have worked to build up Washington Filmworks funding programs hoping to attract filmmakers. But funding has been scarce at times and support has been spotty through the years according to some filmmakers who've talked to KIT News.
HERE'S OUR LIST WHAT DO YOU THINK?
So we have some suggestions for future filmmakers to check in the Evergreen state which we think would be ideal for movies.
1.) Gig Harbor
Gig Harbor has a lot going on as one of the faster-growing cities in the Pacific Northwest. It's a richer area with some beautiful scenery. Not only are the homes gorgeous but the waterfront is breathtaking. Perfect for any kind of movie surrounding the water, from a teenage summer movie to a remake of Friday the 13th.
A smaller town when it comes to population, but let me tell you driving through this town makes you feel like you're in a covered wagon. Now that's not anything against this town, it's definitely modern, however, those backroads look like something from Little House on the Prairie.
I mean just look around, what a perfect movie for a western, s, or even just a college party movie. Either way, there's open land for them to spruce up with their Hollywood Magic.
Yes, they filmed the hit movie 10 things I hate about you here in Tacoma, only problem is that it was played off as Seattle. Sure Seattle is great, but if you want some Real Drama head south down to Tacoma.
5.) Mt. Rainer
The mountain would be a perfect place for a Christmas movie or any kind of wilderness movie whether it's action, comedy, or horror. Mt. Rainer has a whole lot of untapped potential, especially for movies.
