Welcome to film-friendly Santa Barbara, the American RivieraTM.
We'd love to assist you with your location and production needs.

Feast your eyes on our sumptuous Spanish architecture, as it sweeps you back a century or two - to California's gold rush era...the hunt for black gold...and the Wild West.

Variety is our calling card, whether it be vineyards, rustic ranches & farmlands, spectacular winding roads, sand dunes, remote islands, deserted beaches, oil platforms, marine preserves, forests & mountains, historical towns or extravagant estates. We have it all!

Looking for the right match? How about the old South, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, old Europe, Napa Valley (we have 100 wineries), or a 50's version of Main St. USA.

Located just 90 minutes north of Los Angeles, our County offers mild, sunny weather year-round. It's perfect for Southern California filmmaking and has been for nearly 100 years. In fact, that's why California's first, major film studio, Flying A Studios, came to Santa Barbara back in 1910.

Come and check us out! We look forward to being of service. -
