It's cheaper for shows and movies to be filmed here instead of Hollywood, without losing any of the award-winning cinematography skills. Did you know Black Panther was mainly shot here?

We found the best movies and shows that are shooting in August so you can be an official extra or accidentally/on purpose be caught in the background. This is your time to shine.
