I was sent this blog posting from Jennifer Yocom today and I have to give the city of Portland some props. Not because Jennifer mentioned my name but because she crystalized the argument for supporting the film and video industry. Thanks Jennifer and thank you to the city of Portland and the Portland Development Commission for all your help over the years.
For those of you who live outside Portland, I encourage you to engage with your local officials as well. There are often easy things that local communities can do to make themselves “film friendly”. Many communities have already done so but there is always room for more local support.
