The Rochester area is consistently rated as one of the best places to live in the United States…and we think it’s one of the best places to photograph or shoot a film or video. The area’s many beautiful neighborhoods, traditional downtown and lifestyle center, cultural amenities and more than 1,000 acres of parkland provide a variety of visual backdrops for filming. Additionally, many automotive research and development facilities and

high-tech companies are located in the community that also provide unique visual opportunities. Please visit the Photo Gallery portion of this website to see for yourself.


Our community is film friendly, with a one-stop process facilitated by our shared Rochester Area Film Office and resulting in expedited plan reviews.  All required Film Permits are reviewed within five (5) business days. Additional requirements may include fire or safety permits, a parking plan and indemnification to assure that public safety is protected. Our Film Liaison will guide you step-by-step. To  kick off the process, visit the Permit Process page and submit a Filming Inquiry Form on-line.


Law enforcement and fire services are provided by Rochester Hills, Rochester and the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department, and all have the capacity and flexibility to provide any and all necessary safety services required for filming locations. We all share a commitment to provide the best environment possible for filming productions.
