I collect locations that would make for good movies.I keep finding myself looking up movie locations after watching a movie...does anyone else do that?
I always do this i always find it so interesting when something is filmed in my home town (which is Halifax) …
I suspect @ch3shirecat4 is referring to the original Halifax, of building society fame, rather than the export version. A quite different environment!My wife and I love Halifax.
There's a whole village in Ireland (Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow) that's become a sort of default extension of the local movie studio. For those who know the layout of its main street(s), it's instantly recognisable, although it can be challenging to match up all of the filmed architecture with what you see in real life. These aren't (usually) post-production enhancements, though, but genuine set builds accompanied by staging posts for the construction workers and their materials. That in itself has become a tourist attraction, especially when it's a Big Name production that's behind the latest makeover, e.g. Disney's modifications for their sequel Disenchanted.When I lived in the NY Tri-State area I would go into NYC quite a bit. Not only would you see locations used in many TV shows and films, but you would be unable to walk down certain streets as they were shooting at the time. [...]
What's bizarre is that some of the locations are "enhanced" in post, so they don't actually look that way in real life.
This reminds me of my first trip to Salzburg, Austria decades ago. The number of American tourists eager to see "the church where Maria got married" from "The Sound of Music" was truly impressiveBeing too familiar with local real-life geography has its disadvantages, though. Like trying to make sense of a newly-arrived tourist's tortuous taxi-ride from the airport to their city centre hotel, that takes them past a dozen famous landmarks that even the most fare-hungry cab-driver would struggle to fit into a single trip.
Fair point. I assumed NS because that Halifax has a pretty robust film industry.I suspect @ch3shirecat4 is referring to the original Halifax, of building society fame, rather than the export version. A quite different environment!
Sure why else would you go to Salzburg, if not for a "Sound of Music" location tour? The convent (and especially the cemetry-courtyard where the family hid from the Germans) is much more interesting ...This reminds me of my first trip to Salzburg, Austria decades ago.

My wife and I love Halifax. Well, Nova Scotia altogether. But yes, some of our favorites have been shot there, around Halifax, Chester, and Lunenberg.
We haven’t been back since COVID hit, but I really want to make trip back up there.
And I do often look up locations on films and series, just out of curiosity.
the trailer is now out for this film, you'll be able to see the locations where it's filmed. Looks like a great film I think i'm going to go to the q & a screening that their holding in Halifax since its in my hometown, why not ! https://squarechapel.co.uk/shows/wa...ith-director-producer-writer-and-cast-member/I always do this i always find it so interesting when something is filmed in my home town (which is Halifax) the latest film that I had seen been filmed here was the Wait For Me film which will premiere in march I think. Although happy valley isnt a film a lot of that series was filmed in halifax it was great!
