A few months back I was contacted by the PR executives at TNT regarding a profile that Costco was looking to do on “Leverage”. I was curious why Costco of all companies was interested in talking about Oregon Film and Video but when I found out that their Costco Connections gets sent out to over 8,000,000 people nationwide, I realized it didn’t really matter why they were interested, it was great exposure for our state and this industry.
It all started back when Lana Veenker came up with the brilliant idea of her “Thug Boot Camp” before the commencement of production for season 3 of “Leverage”. The results of the weekend long event proved to be pretty successful as several people got work on season 3. Here is a link to the Costco article profiling “Leverage” and it’s impact here in Oregon.
