OregonFilm Video Highlights Strength of Oregon’s Film & TV Industry, Need For Film Incentive Program

Earlier today the Governor’s Office of Film and Television released a new video on it’s OregonConfluence blog.  The video brings together a group of interviews conducted at a special advance screening of the shot-in-Oregon film Meek’s Cutoff last week.

As the OregonConfluence article says,

…many local film industry workers took the time to show their support by giving a brief interviews discussing how important it is  to Oregon and to Oregon’s film community that productions like this continue to be filmed here in our state.  Many people from the Oregon film industry along with quite a few state senators and representatives showed up for this special screening to benefit the Oregon Cultural Trust.

The video highlights the growing strength of Oregon’s film and television industry, and the part Oregon’s film incentive programs have played in getting the industry to this point.  Take a moment to see what producer David Cress, casting agent Lana Veenker, Portland-based SAG and AFTRA actors Duane Hanson and Robert Blanche, state Representative Deborah Boone, and Oregon Cultural Trust director Chris D’Arcy have to say about the importance of Oregon’s film incentives - then contact your legislators today to let them know you want their support of House Bill 2167 (the bill to extend and increase our state’s incentive programs!)
