Hi all,

I'm a short film/web content producer and am looking for a place - hopefully not more than three hours away from LA - to shoot a few sequences in a short film this November. Was wondering if anyone around here had any experience with friendly landowners who might be willing to let us shoot on their property. Ideally, we're looking for a location that has a few remaining structures.

If anyone comes to mind - or if there are any friendly landowners on the board - please give me a shout!

Thanks!
Lindsay

I'd recommend any of the following ghost towns that are along or very close to Route 66:

Calico
Amboy
Kelso
Chambless
Cadiz/Cadiz Summit
Essex
Goffs

I covered each of these places on my Route 66 California album and they are within the distance you are looking for:

Also some other suggestions I have that might be worth a visit from Los Angeles:

Salton Sea area:

Bombay Beach
Salton City

Sonoran Desert:

Eagle Mountain
Desert Center
Rice

Mojave (Non-Route 66 associated)

Cima
Death Valley Junction
