Bastrop is a Film Friendly Community and designed the Filming Hospitality Capital of Texas. Bastrop and Bastrop County contain the locations of hundreds of movie, television and commercial scenes, as well as a few television and movie stars. The reason production teams and stars come to Bastrop to films is because of the proximity to Austin airport, the City of Austin’s filming vendors, and the ease of production in Bastrop. Bastrop is home to scenes and natural backdrops of pine trees, flat allevian planes, plateaus, river valleys and rolling hills reflecting just about anywhere in America. The small-town-everyday USA feel that downtown Bastrop maintains also helps draw movie and television crews.
