San Diego, California is the 7th largest city in the nation but probably number one or two in terms of weather, beauty and diverse locations for filming.

Many film and TV production companies make their home in San Diego and so if you are considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman San Diego is an excellent choice for you.
Many major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are filmed all over San Diego every single day, making it ideal for those filmmakers who love California but are not interested in living in la la land Los Angeles.
