Located in southern Alaska, Anchorage is Alaska's largest city and home to about 40 percent of that state's total population. Despite its seemingly remote location, many film productions are attracted to Anchorage and to Alaska, for two big reasons:

1. The scenery is spectacular. Nowhere on earth can you find more beautiful and diverse outdoor scenery locations than Alaska. 2. The incentives are amazing. Alaska currently offers incentive tax credits that total up to a 44 percent return on expenses for filmmakers who shoot film in Alaska.

Anchorage is home to several TV and production companies, as well. If you are considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman, Anchorage can be a surprisingly good choice for your film education, as opposed to moving to L.A. or New York. Anchorage even has its own film festival!

Alaska's first known on-location film was shot in Anchorage–a silent film shot in 1924. Since then, some of the more well-known movies that have been wholly or partially filmed in Alaska include Never Cry Wolf, White Fang, Insomnia, The Thing, 50 First Dates, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and more.

Television production is also no stranger to Anchorage. In 2001, for example, Anchorage was the site of some filming for the TV reality series The Great Race. Even more recently and famously, Alaska itself has been the subject of the TLC television series Sarah Palin's Alaska, filmed largely in nearby Wasilla.

With all the remarkable location options and the state production incentives, it's apparent that Anchorage is actually a promising connection point for both film students and filmmaking professionals.

You owe it to yourself to check out film school. Good luck!
