Fairbanks, Alaska is situated in the east-central part of the state, and is Alaska's largest interior city. Despite its smaller size and apparent remoteness, Fairbanks is still home to television and film production companies. Not only that, but Fairbanks enjoys the benefits of Alaska's remarkable scenic locations and the state's incredible incentives for filmmakers who shoot on location. If you're looking for a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor or cameraman, Fairbanks can actually be an excellent choice as an alternative to relocating elsewhere. Fairbanks even has a film festival.
Alaska has hosted shooting for quite a few well known movies, including Never Cry Wolf, Insomnia, White Fang, The Thing, 50 First Dates, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and others. Television production in Alaska has included reality shows like The Great Race and Sarah Palin's Alaska.
The fantastic natural scenery of Alaska, plus the tax credits available for filmmakers, make Fairbanks a surprisingly promising place for filmmaking professionals and film school students.
Good luck with our film school.
