Pioneertown has always served the dual role of being both a true American town and a place for mass film production.
As Pioneertown has begun to creep back into the limelight in recent years, productions within town have started to skyrocket.
It is important to remember that absolutely every square inch of Pioneertown is Private Property. Some residents/owners love hosting productions and some might shoo away any unwelcome cameras with a rifle.
If you are planning any type of production within Pioneertown other than family photos, you must have the property owner's permission in advance.
We know the difference between people shooting pictures of their friends/family and people shooting for social media, product advertising and every other type of commercial work you can think of.
Don't get caught doing anything you're not suppose to be doing anywhere you're not suppose to be!
Pioneertown is split up by many different private parties.
Say you wanted to film by the Motel and Pappy & Harriet's. You would then want to contact both the Motel and Pappy & Harriet's to confirm a proper date, time, etc.
The entire north half of Mane Street proper, which includes everything on Mane Street from the Film Museum to the Empty Cement Slab across from the Red Dog Saloon, is owned and operated by one party.
If you are interested in filming on Mane Street, in the heart of Pioneertown, you'll want to contact Christy or Cody at (760)365-7580 to discuss permitting.
