ARIZONA PRODUCTION GUIDE
The APA publishes the official production guide for the state of Arizona. To search the online Guide, use the drop-down menus on the left side of any page by clicking on one of the main orange tabs (i.e. "Production Companies") and then selecting individual categories. Alternately, you can type a key word into the search box located above the drop-down menus. You can search for a company name, an individual by first or last name, a crew position, etc. Results are displayed in alphabetical order by company name or by the individual's last name.
You can also download a PDF of the printed version of the 2013 Production Guide, which is identical to the hard copy (NOTE: It's a large file - 11.5 MB - so depending upon your connection it may take several minutes to download.) To get the PDF version, CLICK HERE.
If you're out of state and you'd like to receive a copy of the print version of the 2013 Guide by mail, call APA's office at 480-345-6464 or email your request and complete mailing address to: email@example.com. There is no cost to production professionals.
If you're local or if you're currently in Arizona shooting, you can pick up a copy of the Guide at any one of our distribution points throughout the state. For a list of locations, just click on the photo of this year's Production Guide to your right.
