Dallas Offers: Industry Support and Services
Diverse Locations – The Dallas/Fort Worth region offers a wealth of diverse locations, providing cost savings and convenience in a concentrated geographical area. Two large cities less than 30 miles apart offer distinctly different characteristics: Dallas, with its gleaming, ultramodern skyline and eclectic, hip and high coutour image, is juxtaposed against the older “brick and mortar” look of downtown Fort Worth and the steers and boots image of the Stockyards.
Small towns reflect bygone days or contemporary rural American, set against back drops of farmland and gently rolling ranchland. Dozens of suburban cities and communities are easily transformed into “Anywhere, USA.”
Combined with mild weather (and fewer production delays), North Texas has it all!
Large Talent Pool – Large, highly skilled crew and talent pools. Seventy-five percent of the members of the Texas Association of Film/Tape Professionals – the largest professional organization of its kind in Texas – live and work in Dallas/Fort Worth.
Experienced Crew Base – Award-winning companies in emerging technologies. High definition, animation, effects, sound design: all aspects of post production are at your service.
Large Equipment/Support Services – State-of-the-art equipment, labs and soundstages. The best film and video production equipment in the Southwest is available in Dallas/Fort Worth. The area also boasts the only two 35mm film processing labs in Texas, numerous sound stages up to 15,000 square feet in size and resources rarely available between the coasts, including Panavision.
