a place for all seasons!
Filming in beautiful Placer County is a breeze. We offer FREE film permits and a wide range of resources to assist productions. We welcome all media productions to scout, film and enjoy our spectacular locations year-round. Please see the many links on our home page to get started.
The Placer-Lake Tahoe Film Commission provides location photos, scouting and permit assistance, lodging, crew and support services, a production directory, and local contacts to expedite your filming needs. Placer County is truly a place for all seasons - spring, summer, fall and winter, sometimes all in one weekend, with incredible terrain that ranges from 90’ to over 9,000’ in elevation.
