Find Out How Plane Scenes Are Made In Hollywood

Have you ever wondered how on earth a studio gets the rights to section off an entire airport terminal or have the ability to fit a full film crew inside a narrow 737?

The latter might be easier to understand as you’re probably assuming those interior plane scenes are shot in a studio, but you’d still be amazed at how intricate and detailed these scenes are.

Most, if not all scenes from your favourite movies and TV shows are shot in the same place.

This Insider video Where Hollywood Shoots All Its Plane Scenes takes you on a flight with ‘Air Hollywood’, the studio exclusively dedicated to famous plane scenes we all know including Wolf Of Wall Street, Bridesmaids, Grey’s Anatomy and even The Office.

It’s surprising how often part of a story takes place in an airport or a plane as it’s another one of those little, yet vital elements we don’t always pay much attention to.

Many popular movies, TV shows and even music videos all often have this one thing in common and it’s certainly worth a spare 5 minutes of your time to watch this informative video.
