Cleveland is rising up the ranks to 12th in MovieMaker Magazine’s best places for filmmakers to work and live.
Cleveland is a chameleon, capable of transforming into whichever city the script needs it to be. Cleveland easily wears so many hats because there is an abundance and diversity of architecture, ranging from the 19th century to ultra-modern. The topography ranges from flat as Kansas to cliffs and mountains, all within a short company move within a 30-mile radius. Local and state governments gladly work with production companies to cut through red tape. And another beautiful trait: Clevelanders aren’t jaded.
It is refreshing how easy it is to film movies in Cleveland. But the cost of living alone is enough to make Cleveland the best place for a filmmaker to live. That’s why Cleveland is a filmmaker’s Shangri-La.
