From George Clooney to regional production companies, Cincinnati has become a hotbed for filmmakers. Within its seven rolling hills, the city offers every kind of landscape desired from urban density to small town neighborhoods or vast country fields. Media group Rebel Pilgrim took advantage of the Queen City's diverse aesthetics and shot their latest feature-length film, A Strange Brand of Happy, entirely in Cincinnati.

While some films would pick out recognizable landmarks, like Fountain Square or Music Hall, Rebel Pilgrim wanted to showcase Cincinnati's ability to mimic Hollywood sets. Eleven locations were used in the production, none of which lead viewers to notice any distinctions of Cincinnati - in a good way. Having the potential to recreate Anytown, USA is a draw for filmmakers looking to shoot a film without the inconvenience of jumping around to multiple cities.
