After A Movie Is Filmed On Location, This Happens To What’s Left Behind

After production wraps on a major movie, chances are that the set is never fully broken down if the film was shot on location. When the set is completely abandoned, the elements begin their work, causing it to slowly be reclaimed by nature. These sets are surreal to come across, especially if you”re not expecting to find them.

There”s something sad about these empty, rotting movie sets. Without the cameras and actors, they are nothing more than regular places devoid of movie magic.
