Pros and Cons of Filming in San Francisco

Filming in San Francisco is not without it's own unique pros and cons. Here are a few to consider.

Advantages

  • Great weather
    The weather is nice. There aren’t many rainy days and the summers are cool. Not only does nicer weather make most things easier, but filming outdoors in San Francisco is possible most days of the year.

  • Things to see
    There’s a diverse mix of architecture around this charming city. This keeps things intriguing and interesting. There are also tons of well-known locations. Many movie watchers love to see places they know or hear of on the big screen and this is more than doable when filming in San Francisco.

  • Great discounts
    Given the plentitude of production companies and ancillary services in the San Francisco area, many businesses offer discounts to crews and production companies just to compete. You can get discounts on many film production services, flights from airlines, rooms from local hotels, and even city tours.

Disadvantages

  • Hidden Fees
    There’s often a daily fee each day for filming and parking. And application fees are often required when requesting police support--such as when booking a high-traffic spot.

  • Strict Rules
    Given San Francisco's commitment to reduce its environmental impact, there are now specific requirements for 'green filming,' to keep filming sustainable.

  • Bad Traffic
    While San Francisco has plenty of transportation services and options, traffic can get a little dense, especially during rush hour.
    Alas, the time it might take for you to get around needs to be considered.
