Film Production in Bowling Green, Ky
Master of Horror John Carpenter mentions plenty of Bowling Green places, streets and people in a few of his blockbuster films, but no scenes were ever filmed here. Perhaps if the Kentucky tax incentives for video and film production had been in place years ago, we would be telling a different story today!
The rolling hills, quaint and historic downtown district, and elaborate cave systems of the area certainly provided Carpenter inspiration. Now the state's third-largest city offers a multitude of amenities and resources for filmmakers in addition to the scenic landscapes and structures found throughout our city and surrounding communities. Browse the Kentucky Film Office's Reel Scout pages or the SOKY Film Commission's website for Bowling Green and Warren County locations.
Twenty minutes across the Kentucky/Tennessee border and one hour north of Nashville, Bowling Green has professional resources in every facet of production including costume and set design, camera operation, casting, stylists, equipment rentals, and transportation. Links to these businesses and individuals will be coming soon on this site.
But perhaps the number one reason Bowling Green is geared for filming is our community's willingness to go above and beyond and to always find a way to say "yes!"
