About Austin

The city of Austin acts as the capital of Texas and is one of the state’s major cities. This metropolitan city is around 80 miles from San Antonio and sits near the Colorado River. As of 2010, the population of Austin was just under 800,000 residents.

While it is the fourth largest city in Texas, it started out as a small village named Waterloo. It became the permanent location for the capital of the state in 1839. In 1840, it became an incorporated city. The Texas government had to move to Houston in 1842 due to the threat of Mexican invasion but returned to Austin in 1845.

When a permanent bridge was established over the Colorado River, and the Houston and Texas Central Railroad arrived in the area, Austin began to thrive as a hub for trading. In 1900, a flood collapsed the bridge and caused major destruction. Austin had another boom in the 1990s when high-technology companies moved to the area.

There are many production companies and excellent filming locations in Austin, and there are lots of filmmakers who love to create movies and shows in the city. If you have seen shows and movies like Fear the Walking Dead, Miss Congeniality, and most Matthew McConaughey films— no doubt you'll see some Austin backdrops and landmarks.

Pros and Cons of Filming in Austin

There are pros and cons to every city, including Austin. Make sure you know all the disadvantages as well as the advantages before finalizing your Austin film locations.

Advantages

  • Friendly locals
    When you’re in Austin, Texas, the locals are genuinely friendly. Everyone is generally happy and in a good mood. This pleasant atmosphere is one of the major pros of the city.

  • Outdoor fun
    Austin is full of outdoor fun to enjoy. There are multiple parks that offer hiking, kayaking, swimming, biking, and more. These parks are some of the city’s top attractions.

  • Food
    If you love a good Texas BBQ, you would definitely find some o the best smoked BBQ restaurants in Austin and its surrounding areas. Plus, you can visit one of the most famous film locations in the city, which is the Baker Street Pub and Grill on Lamar Blvd, where Office Space was shot.

  • One of the best filming locations
    Movies and shows like Idiocracy, Spy Kids, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, and Varsity Blues were shot in Austin, just to name a few. And directors like Mike Judge and Quentin Tarantino love the city's aesthetics, making it perfect for most photographers and filmmakers. The famous high school film "Dazed and Confused" (the city's Bedichek Middle School and West Enfield Park make appearances), the horror film, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," (see the farmhouse when it was filmed on Quick Hill Road, just north of town) and the famous football series "Friday Night Lights" were shot in the Austin area.

  • Entertainment and music venue hub
    Aside from the film locations and the tons of movies filmed in the area, Austin is also an top music and entertainment hub, with tons of venues like Bass Concert Hall, the Travis County Expo Center (seen in Luke Wilson's "Idiocracy"), West Enfield Park and the Violet Crown Shopping Center (featured in "Dazed and Confused").

  • Sunshine
    For the most part, the small town of Austin is always sunny. The city averages 228 days of sun a year and is one of the sunniest places in the country. The sunshine also contributes to mild weather throughout most of the year.

Disadvantages

  • Car centric
    If you’ll be in Austin for an extended period of time, then you’ll need a car to get around, just like you would if you lived in areas like Los Angeles. It’s a car-centered city and the public transportation system isn’t that effective. Another option is to go with a private car service, but that can get expensive after a while. Unlike in New York, you will need a car to get around the Austin area.

  • Summer heat
    In the summer, the heat in Austin can become unbearable. It can make it hard to enjoy outdoor activities, especially during the middle of the day when temperatures are at their highest. Good thing you can visit any shopping center to get a little AC when it gets really hot.

  • Traffic
    Since Austin is such a populated city without good public transportation, you can expect a lot of traffic on the roads. This is a major drawback for locals and tourists alike.

The area is home to the largest urban colony in the world, and they can be glimpsed flying from March to November. They aren’t active during the winter months. The bridge offers some breathtaking views of the city stretching under it as well.

McKinney Falls State Park
