    Hi. I’m looking for a location/s to create an “end-of-the-world” desolate city look for a short film. Basically the place has to look like it could never be re-generated for people to live in. I’ve considered Cuba & Russia but would like to ask for recommendations. Thanks.

    Pripyat starts from 2’42”

    Hi Sarah!

    You should also try the Dominican Republic! Let me know if you think that there is anything that I can do to help. Hurricane George hit here in 1998 and left some areas devasted that due to the economy are still in the same condition.

    Hope this helps! Email me if you’d like, I’d love to learn a little more about your project!

    Thank you all for you input.
    I will contact you individually as the project progresses.
