    We’re looking for abandoned towns to shoot in that look like post-apocalyptic USA. Preferably in an area with other amazing scenery and desolation / post apocalyptic scenery, to shoot a low budget sic fi feature film. Any suggestions welcome from any part of the world.

    Rory,

    There is a recently vacated old US army base in Iceland that is available for filming.

    Contact: Einar at Iceland Film Commission.

    Good luck.
