The Placer-Lake Tahoe Film Office 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.

Train Shakes Up Christmas in North Tahoe!
Lead singer Patrick Monahan and his team filmed their holiday favorite “Shake Up Christmas” in the Tahoe City-Tahoma area of Placer County in mid-November.
