Reno, Nevada is located along the western edge of the state near the California border, against the eastern edge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Hosting a population of about 200,000 people, it bears the nickname "The Biggest Little City in the World" and is often thought of as a smaller rival to Las Vegas for its gaming industry. In fact, regular visitors to Nevada gambling often express a preference for Reno as an alternative to the larger, louder Vegas scene. Reno is also a favorite backdrop for filmmakers, and numerous films, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are shot in the area. If you are thinking of a filmmaking career as a film producer, film director or film editor, Reno affords plenty of opportunities to learn and provides an excellent alternative to relocation to the craziness of New York or L.A.
Some of the movies that have been filmed in Reno include Magnolia, Into the Wild, Jack Frost, Misery, Sister Act and Kingpin, to name a few. Television production is also significant in this area; among the television shows that have done filming in this area are Reno 911, Smith, and classic TV series The Rockford Files.
