|On set of Roadies at Peter Strauss Ranch, SAMO|
Filming has been done at Paramount Ranch since Paramount Studies bought the parcels of land that they saw fit for their productions. A town was constructed to film what we would call, “Old Western Movies.” Some of these buildings remain in SAMO’s Paramount Ranch where filming is still done today. During my time with permits, I was able to stay involved with the rangers as they kept the area safe from what the film crew wanted to do for the different scenes. Upon signing a permit with SAMO, there are certain terms and conditions that must be met in order to preserve the resources within the area. These particular rangers continuously check for compliance with the terms of the permit. This gave me a new perspective on the very many pieces of the puzzle that come together to form SAMO.
