Hello,

I'm currently doing some locations scouting for an independent film in the DFW area. I was looking for a location that had a Church out in the middle of nowhere(An old beat up church that looks like it's been through alot. The setting has to look like it's taking place during a war).

Another location would be that of a greenhouse/sunroom.

If anybody could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Have you been around the Mineral Wells area? There's a former helicopter base out there with tons of creepy buildings and a prison in the old WW2 barracks. It comes off more post apocalyptic than war torn, but I'm sure there's a raggedy old church in the area.

Google 600 SW 3rd ave. Mineral Wells, tx 76067. Best I could find, the church is on the corner, across from the crack house.

A relative was involved in a movie called "Red Wing" that was shot in Whiteright near the Texas/Oklahoma border last year. They shot in a small old church, and I think at least portions were set in the past. You may check that city out..

There is a wonderful greenhouse behind 5002 Swiss Avenue. See 2013 Homes on Tour | Swiss Avenue Historic District Also many homes have sunrooms and porches.

Did you need permission from the city to shoot at the hospital?

I didn't shoot there, but I have been to the area quite a bit. My Great grand parents live in-between Weatherford and Mineral Wells.

I would guess you probably would need permission from the city. The military dumped the property on the city after the base closed, and it's been a money pit from what I understand. I would contact their chamber of commerce, they'll make all the phone calls for you, and do anything they can for publicity. It's a cool little town to explore.

Lots of filming goes on in that town. Some Prison Break episodes were filmed down by the Brazos river, Clark Gardens has been in a few movies, so I'm sure they'd welcome it.
