Our destination...your next film location

If you're scouting locations for your next film production or video, you won't find this much variety in any other destination. The Bradenton area is the place. From beautiful beaches on Anna Maria Island and a working fishing village to a Civil War plantation and an eclectic artist community, we have so many choices here in the Bradenton Gulf Islands.

We have wild and civilized, urban and rural, white Gulf coast beaches and untouched nature – all in one sunny, hospitable place. We have all the resources you will need to conduct your film production at our destination including resources and equipment rentals. Contact us for help with your next shoot.
