Crested Butte and the Gunnison Valley are located in the West Elk Mountains of central Colorado. If you’re looking for a film location that offers miles of trails on acres of public lands, scenic vistas, lots of water, winding and exciting roads (dirt or paved), comfortable towns, and an in-town airport, then you need to check us out!
We are certainly biased, but we believe that the Gunnison Valley and surrounding parts of Colorado offer some of the most scenic and beautiful filming locations in the Rocky Mountain West. Combine all that with plentiful public land, friendly locals, great food, affordable lodging, and an incredible community of local creatives who can help your project come to life, we think you’ll want to consider holding your next shoot in Gunnison County. We’ve built this site to provide all of the information you need to make it happen.
Matchstick Productions (aka MSP) has been based right here in Crested Butte for 25 years. They put together the reel below for us to showcase some of our most beautiful locations in the Gunnison Valley and nearby.

In late 2017, we collaborated with polar explorer Eric Larsen and his sponsors on a press trip. Local Agency Meyvn Creative supplied both photo and video assets for Eric, his sponsors, and the media who joined us on a winter camping adventure. Some photos from the overnight expedition to Lake Irwin:
If you’re interested in doing your own press camp or product launch in the Gunnison Valley, reach out to our PR Manager, Andrew Sandstrom.
Devon is a former Crested Butte resident and photographer who seems to come back regularly for product shoots and other assignments. We’ve partnered with him in the past on some of our events. Here are a couple of shots from a shoot he did for Bern Unlimited.
