Who's Been Filming In Your Neighborhood?

 

Well, my dear readers, after a great day showing homes to some new buyers in the Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area yesterday, and coming off the success of my AWESOME featured post about Bob Stewart, it was time to regroup and continue on my quest to visit every web site ever created... Remember, I do the research so you don't have to!

I came across a web site with an interactive map showing 100 years of movie set locations.

Who's Been Filming In Your Neighborhood?


It was kind of neat to zoom in and see that movies like Kiss the Girls, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Bull Durham were filmed here in the Raleigh area, and that many others have been filmed in the mountains and beaches of North Carolina.

If you click on the picture of the map I've included here in this post, you too can see what movies have been filmed in your neck of the woods.

Come back and leave a comment. Let us know who's been filming in your neighborhood....

Weird.  I couldn't find anything filmed in my neck of the woods.  I wonder why we've been ignored.

Hi Craig - In the Greater Toronto Area, we have a lot of movie, TV show and commercial production.  The local governments have departments to make it easy to arrange for everything.  We also have federal and provincial tax credits to make it even less expensive.

Toronto and area usually have often stood in for other cities including many American cities.

And of course, we also have the Toronto International Film Festival every year where a lot of well known celebrities from Hollywood and elsewhere converge.

Hi Craig, as I suspected Hollywood hasn't found Red Feather Lakes yet. But I know that a lot of the series Centennial was filmed in Larimer County where I live.  Fun Map!

Gabe - I thought it was pretty neat too Gabe. When I came across it, I just had to share it with my friends...

Mary - I knew Red Feather Lakes probably wasn't going to be on the list. But your area is so beautiful, I knew something had to be filmed close by.

Hey Craig, really cool site, but you have too much time to kill. the last Movie shot in our area was War of the Worlds, and it created a real terror as they didn't collect all of the 'dead' mannequins from one of the scenes and they went floating down the Naugatuck River, and people were calling the police reporting a sea of dead soldiers in the water.

Jane - :) :)

Laura - There you go! The Manchurian Candidate was a classic and filmed right there in W. Crick!

Ed - How funny is that? Floating mannequins causing as much panic as the movie did itself!
