Tex Ritter and many other old-time movie stars used to shoot films in and around Santa Paula/Ventura. Today’s film industry is keeping the tradition alive. Close to Los Angeles, Heritage Valley (including the cities of Santa Paula, Fillmore and Piru and hundreds of acres of agriculture, unspoiled mountain ranges and even a lake) is seen as the perfect movie location destination. Limoneira Company maintains a film industry-friendly division that cooperates with the City of Santa Paula to bring filming activity to our beautiful valley. Film producers find the lighting opportunities here abundant and unique and our track record includes feature films, commercials, television, documentaries and print. Our proximity to Ventura’s beaches and ocean (ten minutes away by car) and to Los Angeles (45 minutes “over the hill”) make our logistics convenient and easy. Together the City of Santa Paula and the properties of Limoneira provide film producers with a powerful combination of assets providing limitless opportunities to create unique and original content.
