Familial affection emerges in the form of sisterly bickering in ‘Quiz Lady.’ To display their eclectic mix of skill and acumen for making the best out of the worst, the producers opted to film the movie in Louisiana and California. The principal photography for the movie began on June 7, 2022. The film was wrapped up in the next few weeks, and production was concluded by the end of July.

While Will Ferrell and Jason Schwartzman add another layer of levity to the premise, the story is also enhanced by its scenic locations. New Orleans served as a suitable site for the production team to capture the highs and lows of Anne and Jenny’s journey. The characteristic timelessness of the structures in New Orleans also made a vital difference to the storyline.

As such, several of the inner and exterior scenes may have been shot around the countless filming locations in the city.
Los Angeles, California
The movie zeroes in on several aspects of Anne and Jenny’s life. From the ghosts of their pasts to the memories they create on a cross-country trip, ‘Quiz Lady’ explores the existential complexities of the two women. The film features flashbacks of the sisters’ youth and how they once lived in Burbank. To depict the distant memories of the past and the present, several locations in Los Angeles came in handy. Many scenes for the film have been shot outside. Naturally, the sunny roads and picturesque sites of Los Angeles served as the ideal backdrop.
Besides this, the movie also displays the inner workings of a studio as Anne decides to use her ken and win the money for her mother’s gambling debt. Seeing the scores of studios present in the metropolitan, the producers decided to shoot the scenes there. As a hub for movie studios and stars, Los Angeles has served as the filming location for renowned productions like ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Barbie,’ ‘Not Another Teen Movie,’ and many more. Other locations for the movie include the Humboldt County. With its spectacular views and characteristic buildings, the producers found the location perfect for capturing the essence of familial bonds.
