including film office information and other data of interest to location scouts, location managers and other production personnel.

I lived, went to Art School and worked in South Florida for about 8 years from around 1983 to 1991. I lived and spent lots of time in NE Florida in different areas from Jacksonville south to Orlando and in the Florida Panhandle (NW Florida) in high school, so… yep. I know my way around Florida pretty good!

Kewl Photo / Film Location Fort Lauderdale, FL

Tropical masterpiece short term rental in Las Olas, Fort Lauderdale, FL

A Masterpiece of artistic style and design. This home was created by the French artist Laurin in 1994. The artist created a contemporary tropical paradise by combining the natural elements mahogany and stone with stainless steel and ceramic tile to create an atmosphere of high style and maximum comfort. Look for the orchids in the trees. Walk to Beach and Las Olas Boulevard shops.

Unfortunately the film / photo location listing seems to have expired 🙁

I used live in Fort Lauderdale, and can tell you the East Las Olas Boulevard area is one of the poshest stretches in the area, especially downtown in Fort Lauderdale, east of US1 and the homes on the “isles” as you take Las Olas east toward the beach – (Las Olas Boulevard terminates at Rt. A1A which is a beachfront thruway…)

South Beach in Miami Beach seems to get a lot of the bigtime publicity (maybe its better this way? 😉 and Miami certainly has some elegant and exotic locales as well – maybe I’m sentimental… I always liked Las Olas 🙂
