Downtown is where the action is at in a lot of cities. It's where you will find interesting architecture, foliage, people, art, and just life in general. It's no wonder this setting is one of the most frequent requests we get. Below are a few example images from our downtown footage selection.
Highways allow for characters to travel a more considerable distance than surface streets which can be a great transition. The car can easily be surrounded by vehicles on all sides and usually traffic is fast moving which can lend its self to a dramatic beat. There are often elements such as overpasses and street lights that allow for photography with variable intensities of light and unique far-ground reflective elements which can add to the visual intrigue and even mood of a scene. These kinds of scenes would be dangerous for human crews to shoot on a process trailer. Luckily we have compiled loads of this content so you can instead utilize the safety of a soundstage.
We frequently get asked for traffic jams, rush hour traffic, heavy traffic, ect. There is no shortage of these types of road conditions in Atlanta. If you spend a day driving around this city it's going to be pretty hard to avoid. While there are tons of cars on the road there really aren't a lot of grid lock situations so there will be a good amount of movement in the plates. Atlanta has more of a stop and go style of traffic which can be more visually interesting and thanks to us it can all be done without making your cast and crew sick! Call it altruism.
People love to film in industrial areas. Tons of film crews and stages are set up there. These areas are usually filled with concrete structures which can be awesome if you want a grey/sepia look to your background that still has a lot of texture to it. The only problem can be that these areas are often full of cars and big semi-trucks making filming dangerous. When you are trying to get that seedier run down look, or just want a break from visual monotony, our industrial driving footage will do the trick.
Many people these days live in areas with a large amount of multifamily housing. Scripts often call for exterior scenes in communities like these. They are often full of amenities which draw people to them and have a good amount of foot traffic. Thus, they make for great backgrounds and settings for filming. They are a great place to get interesting action, textures, lights, colors and can really add to the visual intrigue. They also look great at night and can be prime for night city driving sequences because there are well lit storefronts which allow for silhouettes.
We regularly get customers who have beats where their characters are entering a highway. Driving around it feels like the city must be something like 70% roads so you should expect us to have a lot of footage that can be used in this way. Whether you need an on-ramp to a large multilane highway or a shorter on-ramp to a dinkier highway we have you covered. Head over to the link below to "get up to speed" on some on-ramp plates.

While many people live in and around the downtown area, there are a large number of suburban communities in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.

Atlanta is the definition of urban sprawl. It's is a huge city, new people and businesses move there every day, and more land is developed as need arises. When you need this kind of scenery there are ample places to find it.
