St. Pete/Clearwater Becoming a Hot Spot for Movies, Commercials & Music Videos

With Dolphin Tale 2,the sequel to the Warner Bros. blockbuster, already in the works to film and be produced in Clearwater this fall, the list of movies, commercials and music videos filmed in St. Pete/Clearwater is booming. After a picture-perfect experience filming Dolphin Tale on location in Clearwater in 2010, Alcon Entertainment’s glowing reviews about filming in the area has bolstered St. Pete/Clearwater’s reputation as a world-class location for film production. Recently, Magic Mike (Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey), Spring Breakers (Selena Gomez), and Sunlight Jr. (Naomi Watts, Matt Dillon) were all filmed in the area, raising the area’s profile—and hip factor—to new heights.
