Whether you’re taping a commercial for hiking boots or capturing footage for an Indie film you’re producing, there’s no better backdrop for filming than Bend, Oregon. From towering forests to sparkling rivers to endless stretches of desert, you’ll find the perfect landscape to fit your vision. Capture footage of towering mountain peaks in the morning, then hit the town for shots of funky, urban mountain town culture.
We promise your production crews will find Bend to be one of the most inspiring places they’ve ever worked. Putting in a 14-hour day of filming is a whole lot easier to handle when you cap off your evening, or enjoy a day off, with a moonlit canoe adventure or an outing on the Bend Ale Trail. Waiting for the perfect light is a whole lot more fun when you can gaze at Cascade mountain peaks as you do it.
In Bend, our expansive mix of natural and urban venues, 3,000 Bend hotel rooms, convenient access, an abundance of restaurants, and unparalleled outdoor recreation provide the perfect recipe for the perfect film set.
