Light, camera, action… but where?
An upcoming new movie filming in the Syracuse area is looking for help finding two main locations. Producers are looking for a house surrounded by woods and a large wooded area – but the two locations do not have to be on the same property.
More specifically, the film seeks:
- The house: A two to four bedroom family home ideally situated at the end of a long driveway and surrounded on one to three sides by woodland. The house should have a basement and an upper floor. Age or wear is good. Homes that are no longer in use and could potentially be demolished for the project are also considered.
- The large forest area: Need a large piece of land with as much topographical diversity as possible, especially including a large cliff or crag. There should also be heavily wooded areas and clearings. Any streams or ravines are a plus. The more biodiversity the better and mature trees are a bonus. Ideally, the space will have enough existing infrastructure and access to easily build tree stands, forts, courses, and barriers within the forest. Alternatively, existing old structures on the land would be a plus ie. an old farm, well or quarry etc.
If your home or outdoor space meets one or both of these criteria and you are interested in making it a part of the production, email [email protected] with a brief description of your property and best contact information.
Details of the film, including its title, director, cast, plot and production company, are not being disclosed at this time.
The Visit Syracuse Film Office says it is working with the production company on the project and is sponsoring and developing other film and television productions in central New York.
More than 20 films have been shot in the Syracuse area in the last five years, thanks in part to New York State’s film tax credits, the Greater Syracuse Soundstage (formerly known as DeWitt’s Nano Film Center) and Liverpool-based American High, the is shooting his 15th film this summer. Big names that have come to town in recent years include Vince Vaughn, Rebecca Hall, Pete Davidson, Megan Mullally, Jeff Goldblum, Patton Oswalt, Jerrod Carmichael, Danny Trejo and Siobhan Fallon Hogan.
