I spent multiple hours on Google Earth spanning the California coast to find this location. From Santa Cruz to Crescent City, CA; It’s too rocky to be too near L.A. and I don’t think filming locations would expand into Oregon or Washington state for Homegrown (1998).
To me this is one of my favorite shots in all of film. I’ve seen over a thousand movies because I have them listed on my IMDB page. It’s almost like this shot isn’t real because it’s just too great. With Google Earth you have a bird’s eye view and that’s it, because there’s no street view unless it’s highways. So it’s difficult to tell how steep the rocky cliffs are from above and in this shot it’s holding nothing back, so beautiful.
My objective is to go to this place, even if it’s on someone’s land. There are no specific filming locations for Homegrown on IMDB, Bon Jovi’s house in the movie is also very nice except that would be impossible to find, at least with the house in this shot seems possible.
Maybe this house doesn’t exist anymore, it was 18-19 years ago. I’m quite excited if someone knows the answer.
