Future Movie Settings

Historical Sites and Modes of Transportation

Here are some of the shots my co-producer wife and I have taken during visits to potential movie sites on daytrips during the pandemic. Our southwest Ohio/northern Kentucky area is rich in history–note the Wright Bros workshop and historical Wright Flyer (we’re exploring a possible Wright Bros. biopic). Many of the vehicles are in displays. These can often–with strict supervision–be moved to shooting locations. Also, vehicles that can’t be moved can be placed into new settings by digitally adding motion backgrounds (we did this on my last film, Notzilla). These are only a few of the promising settings and vehicles we’ve seen!

    I was just through the corvette museum in Bowling Green a while back, made me think of some movies that used some of the classics

    It’s like stepping back in time. I love history and time travel for sure. I am excited for your pre-production prep. We are visiting Tennessee and Georgia this summer, but it would great to visit places like this, too.

    Thank you,

    These are great, Mitch. I love History and had never heard of Carillon Park. I think if we are allowed to travel in the fall, I might take a trip to Dayton and spend the day. It is only a few hours away from me.

    Terrific collection of historic location images, Mitch. They call out to be settings in movies! 🙂

    I love the old bikes! I love older houses, ones over a century old that are still standing. It’s a testament to a lost art form of quality. Energy inefficient though they may be! I did a “lighthouse” tour near Cape Cod after I graduated a few years ago. The NP actually moved them slowly. Rolling them back when the coast erodes too much. It’s fascinating how people can still tour them after all that! Amazing! Places like that are practically begging to have their pictures taken.
