Oregon has been a filming destination since 1908 and remains an iconic location for just about every landscape need.

From the Overlook Hotel (Timberline Lodge) in The Shining to the Delta House (Eugene) in Animal House; from the railroad tracks (Cottage Grove) in The General to the tent cities (Baker) of Paint Your Wagon—the history, talent and support structure for creating content throughout the state still remains as deep and varied as ever, stretching from The River Wild to Wild and back again.7 1

Grimm and Portlandia use the state’s largest city as a backdrop for monsters and social satire, but Ashland was recently recognized as the nation’s #1 small city to live and work in as a filmmaker, while Bend and Central Oregon play host to countless high-profile commercials and outdoor & extreme sports spots. It’s hard to find a more diverse environment in such close proximity to creative companies and talent.
