Why Film in Orlando in the Winter [Infographic]

Posted by Lindsey Sandrin on Feb 1, 2018 9:00:00 AM

While the vast majority of the country is either covered by snow in the winter months or, at the very least, void of any live foliage, Orlando provides a haven of green grass, bright blue skies, and most importantly, no snow or ice! Our amazing weather, combined with the fact that palm trees do not grow natively in Central Florida, make the Orlando Region the perfect place for projects from all corners of the country (and globe!) to film. The majority of our permits are free, our crew base is enviable by any standards, our locations include everything from downtown high rises to cobblestone streets to swampland, with any style of house you could imagine. Truly “Anywhere USA”, Orlando is open for business and ready to host your project.
