  • Hello all!

    We are looking for road locations in the US for a car commercial shoot around November/December. Needs to be sunny/clear skies and landscape to resemble Russia (see attached references). Anyone out there that can help us out? Many thanks in advance!

    Good Morning,

    We film throughout the state of California and I’m more than happy to connect and discuss your shoot in further detail.

    The only limitation I see based on your photos will be foliage based on the time of year. Other than that we should be able to get you pretty close to these shots.
    Please email me if you’d like to discuss any further.

    Certainly we can propose a few locations for your commercial. Please feel free to email me at We have a vast location library and have pictures from all over California. Likely, we’re looking in the Bay Area or Santa Barbara as it tends to be a bit greener than Los Angeles.

    Santa Barbara County Film Commission here. Currently everything is golden, almost zero green. It will take a lot of early rain to get us to green by December.


    We can send you current photos of similar locations in Santa Barbara County, CA.
    Although we are not green at the moment (in the midst of a drought) there are some private estates that can provide the look you’re going for. Please shoot us an e-mail or call anytime.
