Yellowstone Film Ranch is a one-stop shop Montana filming location with industry-leading tax credit services, an operational western town backlot, vast prairie and forested land available, medieval sets, and a spacious production office available for rent in the heart of downtown Livingston. The production office also includes a costume & prop house and studio space featuring cabin interiors, green screen, and ample space to build sets.
The Western Backlot is styled after a late 1800s gold rush town uniquely located in Montana’s pristine Paradise Valley. The vast sagebrush and forested serenity offers a 360-degree view of glacier mountain peaks, rolling hills, and Emigrant Peak.
There are thirty structures including fully functional interior/exterior sets and numerous support buildings and façades that join two intersecting streets. Of these finished interiors, there is a church with preacher quarters, a town hall, a livery, a jail with a sheriff’s office, a bank with an authentic 1860s counter, a general store, a guest house, a saloon with a brothel and bathhouse, and a mine entrance.
There are several support structures available for interchangeable interior sets. And additional period sets and landscapes are scattered throughout surrounding areas, including a prairie house, a barn, and a wooden log cabin by a stream.
YFR’s team is a valuable point of contact for filmmakers, combining a full-service production studio and the state’s top western town with production planning, location services, and personal support maximizing the value of Montana’s tax credits and production incentives.
Four to five star lodging for cast and crew with multiple high-end dining and catering options is available within five minutes from the ranch.
