For many big budget feature length movies, choosing good filming locations is just as important as the choice of cast; it's not surprising that the first movies were shot in a then small community called Hollywood overlooking Los Angeles in southern California. Sometimes, these are well-recognized locations which are chosen in part for their very recognizability. Not infrequently though, relatively obscure sites are chosen by movie producers and then become famous from appearing in a popular movie. While California still gets its share of filming activity, there are now many challengers in places like British Columbia in Western Canada, Scotland, Southeastern England, Wales, New Zealand, and Iceland, to name a few.In this collection of drone videos, you'll find a mix of already famous locations such as Lake Como in a region of northern Italy and sites such as Ko Phi Phi islands in southern Thailand, where fame followed a feature movie appearance.
