Filming in Arizona


While I haven't been sharing much about my career in the film industry, being under NDAs limits anything I can say on the subject (for the time being).

I'm honored to be involved in many film projects and to bring more filming industry to the State of Arizona. 

This location offers a lot to cinematographers and to tense plot lines, as survival here is a constant reminder from prickly thorns and rattlesnakes, to soaring thermometers and arid climate.

We are more than coyotes and sunsets and reenactors of the Old West. The State of Arizona has very little land available for development. The great majority of it is untouched. You can drive for hours without seeing anything but nature.

The fantastic winter climate in Southern Arizona is ideal for filming while the mountainous northern regions make for gorgeous forest and snow scenes.

With Arizona having tax incentives for filming here now, we are the closest neighbor to Hollywood. Huge studios are being added to the list here and construction is going mad to keep up with the demand. Being a right-to-work state also makes employing locals a tantalizing prospect. 

I promise to keep everyone updated as information can be released. 

In the mean time, consider visiting Arizona. You cannot get a more diverse place to explore. We have lakes, rivers, streams, mountains, snow, pine trees, shocking geology, Old West reenactments, golf courses, spas, world class restaurants, sunshine nonstop, and very kind and helpful citizens. 

Just some must see's  - 

Tombstone, Bisbee, Jerome, Cave Creek, Prescott, Sedona, Flagstaff, Tucson, Phoenix, Wickenburg, Petrified Forest, Payson, Heber, Painted Desert, Historic Route 66, Lake Havasu City, Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, Goldfield, Superstition Mountains, Lake Pleasant, Havasu Falls, Castle Hot Springs, Heber, Sonoita.....

And here's a trailer for a multi award-winning short filmed here by Saguaro Films.
