Warm, cold, windy, clear, cloudy; all parts of Nebraska in the winter and the exciting background to complement your next project!

News on the street says Nebraska filmmakers are busy casting and shooting all sorts of projects. “Larry the Cable Guy” just finished a commercial for Prilosec in Lincoln for the National Geographic Channel. We are so pleased he enjoys not only living in Nebraska, but shooting here. He knows we have the talent and the crew to make successful projects happen. His desire to film commercials here is a good bellwether for all Nebraska businesses. “You don’t have to look any further than your own backyard,” as Dorothy would say, to find a location to suit your filming needs. Expense of travel and production resources are minimized by utilizing Nebraska’s vast and varied look. Film ON!
