Film, a projection of several pictures in motion, was the trend first set in 1895 to portray a story. Later this mode of projection matured enough and an entire industry was built up revolutionizing the entertainment industry. The audio visuals seem to have more pressing effect on the audience. But in the entire process, not only the story or cast but also the location mattered a lot.
Earlier in-built sets were used to shoot different scenes but then the directors realized that more the originality in the sets, more attention it would draw from the audience. So, they started to approach different regions to consider them as filming locations for their movies.
When this step brought revenue in their regime, government started to provide allowance for shooting at exquisite places and this brought a massive change in the perspective of people who were excited with this improvement. Filming locations provided a sense of ingenuity to the movies rather than setting up fake background. Not every director can afford off-set shooting but they managed to edit the visuals well and recreate a better scenario.
Nowadays certain states are known to have majority of filming locations which most of the entertainment industry associates prefer rather than a bland one. The most famous studios that have been set up at jaw-dropping locations are,
- Walt Disney Studios, Burbank
- Warner Bros., Burbank
- Universal Studios, Universal City
- Columbia Pictures, Culver City
- Paramount Pictures, Los Angeles
- 20th Century Fox Studios, Los Angeles
Around the United States, California is providing magnificent filming locations like hot cakes. Apart from that, Germany has also exceptional locations, Eberbach Monastery being one of them. A famous film, “Der Name Der Rose- The Name of the Rose” was shot at this location. The culture of this monastery isn’t monastic enough but its salient features are,
- Centuries-old monastery gives an ancient touch
- Shows historic and religious importance
- No dogs or phones
- Roaming shirtless isn’t allowed
- Music concerts like Rheingau festival takes place
- Structures provide cultural connection
This helped a lot with the storyline while shooting the film. Apart from that the foundation members are quite strict with the regulations rendered to follow within the walls of abbey. People violating them are strongly evicted from the area if found guilty.
Another than this abbey, Gorlitz which the easternmost city of Germany provides lovely landscapes for shooting subtle films.
