Former Film Set Photography

Atlas Obscura Reveals the Post-Filming Lives of Iconic Movie Sets

— April 30, 2014 — Pop Culture
Film crews spend millions of dollars on building the perfect movie set in the perfect location, but haven't you always wondered what happens to them when the post-production is all said and done? Online travel guide 'Atlas Obscura' reveals some of the most iconic film sets and their current statuses in its latest photo series titled 'After the Wrap: The Post-Shooting Life of Sixteen Film Sets.'

The photographs include sets that range from The Hobbit to Star Wars and City of Pharos, where the camera crews have since long departed. Many sets have been redesigned, while others have been kept in-tact for attraction purposes and offer guided tours. However, some sets like the Mos Espa set in Tunisia, where the original Star Wars trilogy was shot, haven't seen the same post-film fortune. It has remained abandoned for years and is in the midst of being swallowed by dessert sand.
Trend Themes
1. Repurposed Film Sets - The repurposing of film sets for tourism or other purposes presents a disruptive innovation opportunity for the entertainment industry.
2. Set Preservation - The preservation of iconic film sets as tourist attractions highlights a disruptive innovation opportunity for the tourism industry.
3. Abandoned Film Sets - The abandonment of film sets raises opportunities for creative entrepreneurs to repurpose these locations for unique experiences or events.
Industry Implications
1. Entertainment - The Entertainment industry can explore ways to repurpose film sets to generate additional revenue streams and create immersive experiences for fans.
2. Tourism - The Tourism industry can capitalize on the preservation of iconic film sets as tourist attractions, offering fans a chance to walk through their favorite movie scenes.
3. Event Planning - Event planning professionals can consider using abandoned film sets as unique locations for hosting themed events, providing attendees with an unforgettable experience.
