Filming In Alaska

Alaska is one of the world's most breathtaking, rugged, and cinematic regions in the world.  While the State is the largest in the United States it is the third least populated in the union.

With eight national parks, Alaska offers a vast amount of unique locations. With amazing wildlife, rural towns and the possibility to experience it all in four seasons, the state is a great place to shoot. 

When shooting in Alaska you should get in contact with the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development. The Division of Economic Development will help and guide you in the process when shooting in the state. For more information about their services, you are welcome to visit their website.
