Into the Wild. Transformers. Insomnia. 50 First Dates. The Thing. What do all these noteworthy films share in common? They have all done location filming in the great state of Alaska.
While Alaska might seem a bit rural of a place to have a film scene, the fact is that the state's rugged natural beauty, combined with some of the most generous tax incentives for filmmakers offered by any state in the union, have made Alaska a prime location for local, regional and major film and television productions. Besides the films mentioned above (along with many others), Alaska has also provided a backdrop for such popular television shows as Ice Road Truckers, The Amazing Race and Mountain Men, among others.
