China Ranch is also available as a location for both motion picture and still photography shoots.  Over the years several national magazine companies as well as movie studios have taken advantage of the fantastic scenery here as a back drop for their projects. These have included Harper's Bazaar, Country, National Geographic, Paramount Studios, and several smaller companies. In 2001 Paramount Studios used China Ranch for the desert scenes of their hit movie "The Sum of All Fears", starring Ben Affleck and Morgan Freeman.

The scenery available can include austere badlands, lush desert oases, palm orchards, rocky gullies and canyons, a running desert stream, historic buildings, and others. Several of these scenes can be seen by navigating around our website. The area is ideal for use in westerns, biblical scenes, Iraq or Afghanistan, or the American Southwest.  Our rental rates for use of the property are generally very competitive, and we understand how to help facilitate your production needs in a remote location.  For more information or to add photos of China Ranch to your location portfolio, you can arrange a visit to the ranch on our contact us page.
