Question by elpimpinbob: Austin, Texas-Rural “Afghanistan-type” environments for filming?
I am currently on the lookout for areas in the Austin hill country for our upcoming action film, and we are trying to find some nice “Afghanistan-type” environments to film at.
By this, I mean areas with few trees, wide spaces, and perferabbly away from any major highways, neighborhoods, and cities.
I want to know if there are any other indies out there that have used these areas, and if they put in some reccomendations.
We are indie filmmakers, so areas where we can legally obtain permission without purchasing permits would be top choice.

I think you’re going to need to head further west than Austin. Look around maybe Midland or Odessa.
