Why The USA Is the Perfect Place For Any Film And Television Production

From New York to Los Angeles and down to Miami, America is home to some of the most iconic filming locations in the world. Not only is the landscape diverse – from deserts to seaside towns to skyscrapers – it’s also home to infamous production houses and some of the best trained film professionals in the industry.

Few countries compare to the sheer size and diversity of the USA, which is why it’s such a popular location for your film production. If you’re looking for a cosmopolitan vibe but want to try different cities, Seattle, Austin and Chicago can give your production some authenticity, and provide a unique setting for your show or feature film to shine.

Then there’s the hospitable southern states, which are perfect for production companies that want to focus on historical movies. Think South Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee and you’ll understand what we mean.

Let’s not forget that the country is also known for its stunning national parks such as Yosemite, which is in the state of California and Arizona has some of the most breathtaking scenery you’ll ever see.

The United States is a dream location for filmmakers. You can find virtually any climate, the best equipment, active film commissions and communities and of course…Hollywood! Some of the most beloved movies of our time were shot in America from Ferris Bueller’s Day off in Illinois to the Wizard of Oz in Kansas and Rocky in Pennsylvania. In fact, there’s been a famous movie shot in all 50 states.

Fixers in America (USA)

America is associated with a lot of different things, hotdogs, baseball, and….Hollywood. The American film industry is the most popular in the world and, with Hollywood releasing over 600 films a year, it’s easy to see why. But, you don’t have to be shooting an action-packed blockbuster to need the help of a fixer. At NEEDaFIXER, we work on all types of projects, big and small. So, do you need a Hollywood set or a drone operator? We can help with both.

Tell us about your vision and your budget and we’ll hit the ground running. Get in touch today!

The better question is, what can’t our fixers in America do for you. If you’re filming a music video and need a mountainous backdrop, our location scouts can help. From there, our team can arrange filming permits, transport and even craft services. In terms of a crew, we can connect you with a range of industry professionals, from sound technicians to graphic designers for post-production. We can even help with marketing after production is finished.

Making a film or video is a big job, especially if you’re filming outside of your home country. There could be language barriers, navigating the landscape can be difficult, and local laws could be hard to understand. Our fixers – all of whom regularly work in the United States – can help. Through local knowledge and connections, NEEDaFIXER can make your experience filming in the US a great one.

Do I need a visa or work permit?

Yes, you will need a work permit if you’re in the USA to make a film or video, whether you’re apart of the cast or the crew. Specifically, you’ll need an O Visa.

Can I hire equipment once there?

Absolutely! And, America is known for its high-quality, state-of-the-art equipment. NEEDaFIXER has relationships with the best equipment rental companies around the country and can help arrange hire of anything from cameras to lighting.
