Beverly Boy Productions frequently works with clients who choose to film in Indianapolis.

We’ve put together this list of the top 10 reasons that we think clients choose video production in Indianapolis to help you decide if this is the right choice for you:

3. City Market Catacombs

Filmmakers delight in the glory of the underground City Market Catacombs in Indianapolis. The limestone  structure and brick archways are just a few of the big draws of the Catacombs.

These are a must-see exhibit and are almost a requirement for any filmmaker in the city to capture.
