hen BMW was looking for a place to shoot their new “top secret” Z4 Concept car, they needed a private desert location (away from the prying eyes of car photographers trying to get the first images), vast open land, a dry lake bed look and long dirt roads. UltimateGraveyard was a perfect fit with over 300 acres of private desert landscape, located over a mile off the nearest highway.
Once the location was locked down, we assisted the Production’s Executive Producer to secure local hotel accommodations, the Production trailers for the crew of 30, and the free permit from Kern County.
The production utilized a variety of locations on the property, including the dry lake bed area, cement tunnel under the railroad tracks, the plane shell and the dirt roads with the Joshua trees and mountain views as the backdrop.
