While New York City is second only to Los Angeles for the size and activity of its film industry, the rest of the state of New York also sees plenty of film activity, both from local production companies and major film studios who come to New York for location filming. The state itself is very film-friendly, enticing many of these productions with generous tax incentives and additional assistance through its film office. Examples of high-profile films that have done location shooting in New York include Salt, The Time Machine, Lolita, The Other Guys, The Alphabet Killer, Tuck Everlasting, The Natural, Bruce Almighty and others.

The people you see featured here are all qualified filmmakers who have the distinction of learning on-the-job as students of the prestigious Film Connection Film Institute of New York. These talented individuals have all been mentored and trained by some of the top film professionals in the industry while working in real film production houses and on the set of actual productions. If you have professional filming needs, you can't go wrong by consulting the professional websites of these filmmakers to see what services they offer.
