* ''Film/IAmLegend'' has a high angle view of an abandoned Manhattan. The city is empty with vegetation overgrowing and wild animals who escaped the zoo are roaming the streets.

Of course depending on the angle and how often this is used it can be jarring when used too much or too low an angle, making it feel like everything is being recorded from the point of view of a child - but when used with proper planning you barely even notice. Competent directors simply make sure the characters in the foreground or the tall objects in the background are interesting enough and the audience will be distracted.

* ''Series/TheWalkingDead''''Series/TheWalkingDead'': Often goes on roads out in the country, but still shoots from low so they don't have to dress the ground.

* ''Series/TheLastManOnEarth'': The survivors take up homes on a hilltop - this ensures the camera has less of a chance of picking up action in the background of shots.

[[caption-width-right:350:Far cheaper than clearing the busy [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Manhattan]] Street behind them - [[TropesAreTools and looks good]], too!]]You're shooting an AfterTheEnd movie where almost everyone is gone, and the world has fallen into disrepair. You're telling the story of TheAloner or the last few people, so when you have to shoot in the city you can't have streets full of cars and people in the background. The thing is, clearing the streets of people, making sure lawns look unkempt, and other set dressing for the apocalypse can be expensive and takes a lot of time. How do you get around this but still film the characters outside?
