Welcome! Why Choose Us?
Amador County offers you incredible natural beauty, a rich variety of historical settings and a rural flavor that makes it a great place for all kinds of shoots.
Nestled in the heart of California's Mother Lode, Amador encompasses 593 square miles stretching from the floor of the San Joaquin Valley to the 8,000+ foot peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Our many natural attributes are numerous, from gently rolling foothills to rugged granite vistas, from sprawling ranchlands and lush vineyards to scenic lakes and rivers... few other California counties offer such a variety and wealth of natural beauty!
Our county's rich history is evident in the numerous century-old buildings (both residential and commercial), mine structures and artifacts, and landmarks. These include Preston Castle, Knight Foundry, Kennedy Mine, and a great many more.
Amador is very accommodating, too. From the hotels, restaurants and available labor pool (craftspeople, extras, etc.) to the cooperative county agencies and expedited permitting process, we stand ready to provide a cooperative and favorable climate for your production needs.
The Amador County Film Commission is the acting liaison between film companies and the County of Amador, and the cities of Amador City, Ione, Jackson, Plymouth and Sutter Creek.
