We recently had a great opportunity to scout large areas of Eastern Oregon as part of our collaboration with Travel Oregon. It’s amazing just how stunning this state is, and what incredible natural beauty we have – from lakes, rivers, mountains to rock formations impacted by centuries of movement and weathering by mother nature.
The Painted Hills are located just outside of Mitchell, and are breathtaking. We purposely planned our arrival for the ‘golden hour’ and weren’t disappointed by the images we got.
Travel Oregon calls the Painted Hills one of their ‘Seven Wonders of Oregon‘, and they’re right. This area is gobsmacking in its beauty, even if you can’t imagine the thousands of years it took to create the varying layers that have formed the hills. To put this on the big or small screen ensures a mesmerizing visual to enhance the story you’re telling.
The Painted Hills are a National Monument, and as such when filming you will need to work closely with the Park Management team, in addition to applying for a permit.
Depending on the size of your production and where you shoot, parking is available at the most popular areas of the monument. There is also what could be a production base at the entrance to the park.
Don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more about filming in the Painted Hills, either for film, commercial, branded content or anything else.
