Jan 19th, 2019: Movies from Morocco

Morocco is a favorite place to shoot movies, not only for background scenery and unique architecture but because they
don’t have to clean up after themselves makes it much cheaper.

Besides, one must always consider the possibility of a sequel.



Quote:
Over the last fifty years, countless movies and TV series have been shot in Morocco, and in Ouarzazate in particular. These include The Man Who Would Be King (1975), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), The Mummy (1999), Gladiator (2000), Black Hawk Down (2001), Alexander (2004), Babel (2006), The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010), 13 Hours (2016), and part of the TV series Game of Thrones and Prison Break, just to name a few.


Quote:
Since 1983, the Atlas Film Corporation Studios located on the outskirts of town have been handling these productions. The Michael Douglas classic “The Jewel of the Nile” was their first film.
Beyond the beautiful natural backdrops, Tazi's studios offer filmmakers dozens of fake options such as Styrofoam Egyptian temples and plaster-cast Tibetan Palaces. Even National Geographic used one of his sets to film the mini-series “Killing Jesus”. Many of these sets were constructed in the desert far from the town and the studio, and after shooting was over, the crew simply packed up their gear and left. The crumbling sets depicting exotic Roman temples and places are now a huge draw for tourists and movie buffs the world over.


Quote:
“Morocco is one of the countries that goes out of its way to welcome film makers,” Tony Reeves, writer of the Worldwide Guide to Movie Locations, told CNN. “Technical crews in Morocco are well sought after -- builders, painters, extras, electrical resources.”
And the clincher...
Quote:
Morocco is also one of the safest countries in the Middle-East.

It's part of the Muslim desert world that's collectively called the middle east, aka the bad guys. You know, like calling Texas the United States.
