This summer, our team of Oregon Film student interns (Sabrina, Justen, and Jake) embarked on a project to interview some of the local vendors that have recently experienced an increase in business due to the film and television industry. By the end of the summer, the interns had produced eight short videos for their “Oregon Vendor Spotlight” series. We will be rolling out the videos over the next four weeks. Today, we are happy to present the first video in the series (embedded above) which highlights local boutique Shop Adorn.
After a store fire unexpectedly hit the small boutique store Shop Adorn, their morale was boosted when a sudden opportunity to provide wardrobe to the cast of “Grimm” reversed their grim incident. One customer exchange later, and this relatively obscure clothing destination became the go-to place for the latest fashion trends featured on “Grimm.”
It is great to be able to put a face to theses local business, and to hear in their own words about the impact the film and television industry has had on their business. We will be rolling out more videos in the series soon. You can receive updates as each video rolls out by following the Oregon Film Interns on Twitter: @ORfilmInterns.
