Arizona IsAmerica's Backlot
Welcome to Arizona America's backlot
With over 300 days of sunshine, no permit application fees for use of state roads and state parks, pre-negotiated discounts from hotels, rental vehicles, restaurants, and more - plus cash rebates from equipment vendors, Arizona is the right choice for your next production.
Few states offer Arizona’s endless variety of outdoor scenic vistas, all within a few hours’ drive. Recent agreements with the State of Sonora, Mexico, and the Navajo Nation have increased Arizona’s already impressive location offerings.
Lower production costs, streamlined permitting processes, experienced crews, and talent: everything your production needs is right here.
Come discover why Arizona is America's Backlot!
