Albany is Affordable, and has the Perfect Location for Any Shot!

Given Albany's convenient location to surrounding cities such as New York City, Boston, and Montreal, as well as numerous settings, buildings, and streets that mimic Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Washington, D.C.  It's no wonder that HBO, Disney, Columbia Pictures, and indie filmmakers choose Albany. 
The Albany Film Commission remains very active in assisting feature and independent filmmakers who frequently express an interest in filming in this area.  We are your one-stop shop.  From that first call to our office, we can provide you with assistance in finding local crew, talent, equipment, services, vendors, and discounted sleeping rooms FREE OF CHARGE!  In addition, downtown Albany is home to several downtown Albany New York State Qualified Production Facilities.  We can also provide hotel buyout recommendations, near these facilities so your talent/crew will be kept safe and comfortable.   
Balancing the big city look with the small-town feel, Albany has the perfect location for any shot you may need.  Recent films and television shows include Disney/Marvel The PunisherThe Pretenders (directed by James Franco), As You Are (2016 Sundance nominee in US Dramatic competition category), Moving Pictures Fourth Man Out (winner of several LGBT Film Festivals), HBO's Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight, HBO's television series Succession, White House Plumbers, Gilded Age, Showtime Billions and Columbia Pictures SALT and The Other Guys.

Showtime's Billions Makes Albany Home!

With its outstanding service, cost-effective production costs and lower density, downtown Albany interiors were the center of this Showtime series.  Hundreds of local extras were utilized along with many services and resources to help facilitate an extremely successful shoot.  Please reach out and see what the capital region can do for you and your next project!!
