Flagstaff is the largest city and a regional center for northern Arizona making it ideal for your production base. The city links I-40 to I-17, Highway 89 to Page and Utah and Highway 180 to the Grand Canyon. Historic Route 66 also passes through Flagstaff. The city offers a variety of lodging, dining and shopping opportunities for cast and crew.
Visualize breathtaking backdrops for any project. Within 45 minutes from Flagstaff you can find lush Alpine aspen meadows and extensive pine forest, primeval lava flows and volcanoes, the snow capped San Francisco Peaks, numerous lakes, the Red Rock canyons of Sedona and mysterious Native American dwellings.
Flagstaff is a great “set” in itself with a restored historic downtown area including the old Santa Fe Railway Station, a turn-of-the-century college campus, famous homesteads and Lowell Observatory.
With over 300 days of sunshine, free use of state roads and state parks, pre-negotiated discounts from hotels, rental vehicles, restaurants, and more - plus cash rebates from equipment vendors, Arizona is the right choice for your next production. Few states offer Arizona’s endless variety of outdoor scenic vistas, all within a few hours’ drive, along with production services and post-production facilities rivaling the best in the nation. Lower production costs, streamlined permitting processes, experienced crews and talent: everything your production needs is right here and right next door.
