The Filming Of The New Saab Commercial in Montana

Posted on 01. Jul, 2008 by in 2000-2009

Photo Credits: Location Manager

The Location Manager at the Montana Film Office has recently provided Saab History with some great photographs from the recent filming of the new Saab Commercials that I covered back on June 10th, 2008.

I understand that these Saab commercials that were filmed at that time,will be shown here in the United States sometime either in the third or fourth quarter this year.

Here is a snippet of the photos from the location manager himself:

Some photos from the June 2008 Saab commercial in Montana from Glacier National Park to Freeze Out Lake North of Fairfield Montana, Employing a variety of high teck means of photography, from the Ultimate Arm to Helicopter

Please enjoy the photos of the filming engagement featuring the Saab 9-3 Convertible, Saab 9-3 SportCombi as as well as what appears to be a Saab 9-7x that I noticed in the background.

It looks like a lot better location to be filming instead of the dusty generic desert where some of the earliest Saab television advertisements took place back in 2005.

    Um, I lived near Freezout lake IT IS ONE WORD NOT 2. It is a very beautiful part of Montana near Choteau, Montana and Fairfield, Montana. If you question it call the FWP of Montana and they will confirm it. It’s a beautiful area for filming anything I recently was a extra in a Film called :Three Priests: (Name based on Priest Butte near Choteau where 3 christan priests were thrown off the butte where the Blackfeet Indians ran the buffalo off because of the fact they did not want to convert.)

    Now Freezeout lake is famous for 3 things. That car commerical, Migratory birds rest stop, and of course Priest Butte. I love living in that area but I had to move. So If you want more info and history on the lake do a search on the visit Montana website http://russell.visitmt.com/listings/11088.htm If you ever want to see Freezeout lake in its glory go there March to May were you will see anywhere from 10k to 300k (yes 300,000) birds and anything from Snow Geese to Pelicans to other various birds. It is quite the sight to see 300,000 birds fly you sware its a swarm of locuts
