On more than a few occasions, the Capital Region has served as the backdrop for a television or film project.

HBO's The Gilded Age spent time filming in the Capital Region and Upstate New York a few years ago. Not too long ago, there was also a need for extras when Pretty Little Liars filmed in Schenectady.

Sure, the Capital Region hasn't reached the level of popularity of Los Angeles or New York City, but with its unique architecture, and its blend of rural and urban areas in essentially every county, our area has certainly been put on the map for filmmakers and producers in recent years.

It's impossible to know where the Capital Region's next film project will pop up, but we recently discovered an interesting way to narrow that search down a bit.

We stumbled across a website called Giggster.

To describe the website in layman's terms, it resembles websites like Airbnb or Vrbo. Instead of booking personal visits or overnight stays, however, filmmakers can reserve spaces by the hour for video shoots of all kinds.
