After a year of conditions making it nearly impossible to shoot new content, the film and television industry is finally back-and it’s back on our islands!
Watch "The Jet Set."
By Laura Hilton
Whidbey and Camano Islands have taken many a starring turn as silver screen locations in the past, even attracting famous films such as Practical Magic and the yet-to-be-released Top Gun sequel (in collaboration with Naval Air Station Whidbey Island!).
As people begin tentatively traveling again, or daydreaming of future travel, naturally our beautiful islands come to mind. Two travel shows visited our shores this summer, both with an emphasis on sustainable travel and how to be a good visitor during these challenging times.
Our islands are scene stealers, and now that safety measures are possible, they are back in the spotlight once more.
With support from the Transformational Travel Council, Joy of the Journey is an unscripted road trip web series exploring World Heritage sites and their surrounds. On a recent visit to Olympic National Park, the show’s creators spent a few days on Whidbey exploring the sights, sounds, and tastes of the island. Look out for Deception Pass Tours, Langley Whale Center, Earth Sanctuary and the Organic Farm School in their upcoming episode, just to name a few.

“It was incredible getting to work with the team and watching Jacob live out a dream. I am so proud of everything he accomplished. And the whole team was so professional and kind with him. You can really see the level of skill in their work.”
“To say that Whidbey Island is largely populated by guardian angels would be an understatement. At every turn, we encountered warm and generous partners for our film who trusted us with their properties, who provided us with beautiful meals, and who rode in on white horses at a moment’s notice to save the day. We could not have had a more positive experience shooting our film on Whidbey Island, and we remain so grateful to the community there for welcoming us with open arms.”
