where is the chosen filmed

The Chosen is the first-ever multi-season series that takes the story of Jesus Christ and reveals it through the eyes of the people who met him. This historical drama is seen by millions around the world.

For Seasons 1 and 2, the show filmed in Texas at Capernaum Studios in Weatherford. Eventually, it got a more permanent home at the Salvation Army’s Camp Hoblitzelle in Midlothian.

Capernaum Studios

The Chosen TV series, the first ever multi-season, crowd-funded television show about the life of Jesus Christ, is filmed at Capernaum Studios in Weatherford, Texas. The studio, which houses several other films, is known for its public events and ministry productions.

In addition to its sound stages and main street, Capernaum Studios offers a variety of event sets, village sets, temples, backlots, a statue garden, a hilltop house, and more. It is also home to many public tours and workshops that engage the community.

After filming seasons one and two at the Jerusalem movie set in Goshen, Utah, The Chosen chose to relocate to the Salvation Army's Camp Hoblitzelle in Midlothian, Texas, for Season 3. It has spent millions building a Biblical village set with 24 bungalows on a 30,000-square-foot sound stage and other facilities to accommodate four more seasons.

Jerusalem Movie Set

Jerusalem is one of the world's most iconic cities, a crossroads of three continents and a religious hub with a rich history. It's no wonder Hollywood loves to make films about this fascinating city, and it's not uncommon to see movies that are set there.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints owns the Motion Picture Studio South Campus, also known as the Goshen Movie Set or Jerusalem Movie Set, in the town of Goshen, Utah. The site is a re-creation of biblical sites, including a grove modeled after the Garden of Gethsemane and an area devoted to the Pool of Bethesda.

The set has been used to film Bible Videos, Book of Mormon video series and missionary films. It has been a painstaking process to build the set, but it was worth the effort because the results are amazing.

Goshen Movie Set

Movies filmed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are part of an important film and TV ecosystem in northern Utah. Not only is the set for "The Chosen" in Goshen, but a local theater just underwent a $5 million renovation that could be the start of a new arts hub for the community.

The Church’s Media Services Department has recreated ancient Jerusalem in a 3-acre movie set near Goshen, south of Utah Lake. This remarkable set will be used again for new material for the Church Educational System, missionary films, conference broadcasts and more.

The Church's production team carefully chose the location for the movie set, which is owned by the Church and was approved by the First Presidency. In the past three summers, hundreds of people have worked on this remarkable set. They are wrapping up filming for a series on the life of Jesus Christ, but will use this set again in the future for other projects.

Midlothian Movie Set

Located in North Texas near the town of Midlothian, it is the latest addition to the burgeoning film and television scene. Among its many attractions is a 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art sound stage, as well as several nifty movie sets to play with.

The site is owned by the Salvation Army and includes a 1,000-acre camp and conference center that has served as a summer camp for kids, a retreat centre and meeting facility for civic, business, school and church groups year round. It also happens to have a pretty good lake that doubles for the Sea of Galilee and was named one of the most interesting places in America by the Wall Street Journal.

The site is a hotspot for film production and the latest and greatest is the international hit series "The Chosen." It's a crowd-funded show about the life of Jesus, produced from a state-of-the-art sound stage and a detailed re-creation of the first century town of Capernaum. It is the brainchild of Dallas Jenkins, a VP at Sony.
