“The Maryland Film Office is an informational, logistical, and location resource for film makers. Our goal is to make the process of filming in Maryland as easy as possible. Maryland offers a rich array of landscapes from which to choose - from the mountains in the west across the rolling hills and farmlands of central Maryland to the beautiful waterfront and sandy beaches of the Eastern Shore. Architecture that spans the centuries from colonial to modern and illustrates a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds can be found throughout the state. Maryland also offers a large and skilled crew and actor base, as well as experienced production, post-production, audio, animation companies and support services to assist you in creating quality productions.” Jack Gerbes, Director Maryland Film Office
