Want to know more about shooting in Wisconsin? See below for an introduction to Wisconsin locations, permits, when to shoot, crew and equipment, and film friendly hotels.
Film Locations. Wisconsin has over 15000 lakes, including Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. It is a naturally beautiful state with thousands of miles of rivers and streams, lake islands, sandstone cliffs, sandy beaches, dense forests, prairies, woodlands and rolling hills. Agricultural looks of interest include cranberry bogs, dairy farms, corn fields, apple orchards and strawberry farms. Wisconsin’s picturesque small towns look like they’re right out of a Normal Rockwell painting. Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s largest city, is known for its lake-front contemporary city skyline, in particular, the Milwaukee Art Museum. The university town of Madison is known for its lakes, parks, laid back cafe culture and the state capitol building. Just outside of Madison you can find Taliesin West designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Wisconsin has hosted productions including Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Amityville Horror, and Super Size Me.
Wisconsin Film Location Permits. No general permits required for filming in Wisconsin and location fees are typically modest. Special Events Permits and proof of insurance are required for closing streets. Please contact us for location specific information.
