Pre-Production Photos

Assistant Director Michael Hausman was responsible for bringing Brokeback Mountain in “on budget.” One way to do that was to minimize the number of different areas in which the film was shot. Charming Fort Macleod, an Alberta railroad town with a “lost in time” quality to it, readily served as the site of the Laundry Apartment, the Fireworks Scene, the Divorce Court, Cassie’s Bar, and the Bus Station Café.

This unique collection of pre-production photos was created in April of 2004 as the filmmakers hunted for Brokeback filming locations in Fort Macleod.
