Where was Emerald City Filmed?

The new NBC series have been described as a dark version of The Wizard of Oz combined with Game of Thrones. Certainly, it seems true enough that producers spent a good slice of the budget travelling to multiple locations across different European countries, like the big hit of HBO's usually does.

The story starts when a quite a grown-up Dorothy from Kansas is caught in a storm, ending up in a parallel kingdom of sex, magic and violent knights. The cast doesn't have any well known actors, and is led by Adria Arjona, Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Vincent D'Onofrio.

Emerald City was primarily filmed in Spain, Croatia and Hungary. The show is a visually gorgeous trip to magnificient filming locations, accompanied by some interesting steampunk stuff and Art Nouveau forms. No spoilers ahead!

Where was Taboo Filmed?

The new co-production of the BBC aired by FX channel is a dark period drama starring Mad Max: Fury Road Tom Hardy. Set in 1814, this fictional story takes the viewer to the darkest nineteenth-century England, in a world where the powerful East India Company ruled some of the most profitable private business of the British Empire.

James Keziah Delaney is a mysterious adventurer returning from Africa where he was presumed dead, to claim his family heritage. The plot of Taboo is an idea of the actor Tom Hardy, who wrote the script with his father and Steven Knight, the creator of Peaky Blinders.

Taboo was filmed around London in some historic homes and other places that make this production remarkably interesting, regarding the filming locations. We will be updating and improving often this report, at the same time that we try not to include any spoilers:

Where was Silence filmed?

The new film of Martin Scorsese is an old project that he was trying to turn into a movie since the early 1990s. Silence is based in a novel that thanks to the work of the film director of Taxi driver, can be turned into a cinema masterpiece.

Visually beautiful and inspired by the natural world, this story about belief and spirituality is following the way of two Portuguese missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) facing a dangerous test of faith. In a country where Christianity was banned, the two members of the Jesuit order are looking for their mentor (Liam Neeson) who disappeared after committing apostasy.

Although the original Shusaku Endo’s book is set in 17th century Japan, Silence was entirely filmed in Taiwan:

Where was The OA filmed?

The series that came out of nowhere. When the trailer was released, only four days before the premiere of The OA on December 16, almost nothing was known about this intriguing Netflix original production.

The project is a story written by Brit Marling, performing also the starring role, and Zal Batmanglij who also directed all the episodes. As usual, we try to keep the spoilers at bay as much as possible, and we will refrain from commenting on the plot. We highly recommend watching this show, specially if you enjoyed Stranger Things.

Only a few filming locations are still a mystery that we hope to sort out soon, as more details about this first season are revealed. The OA was filmed in New York and in some places around it, in La Havana (Cuba), Russia and Iceland:

Where was La La Land filmed?

La La Land has been filmed entirely in Los Angeles and its surroundings. The movie is a wonderful homage to the entertainment capital of the world and is full of references to the classic movies that made it great.

Director Damien Chazelle spent nearly a year editing a movie that has many scenes filmed in one take. He had the idea of filming in places with a touch retro. Also this romantic musical was shot using the old school wide-screen style, CinemaScope.

The actors, our favourite driver Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone (Birdman), are no Broadway performers. They had to do their best to reduce mistakes when dancing for the long uninterrupted takes. Additionally, some of the sequences had to be filmed during a specific time in the day, to catch the beautiful light of the sunset or the blue hour.

We have reunited here more than 17 locations, but bear on mind that La La Land was filmed in more than 60 places in L.A. Also we keep spoilers to a minimum, just in case:
