Since its first filmed project (“The Fisherman’s Bride” released in 1909) Oregon media production has expanded to thousands of movies, television shows, documentaries, animation projects, commercials, music videos, and video games. The industry has kept production crew, talent, and services thriving in Oregon. Coming off Oregon Film office’s 50th-anniversary celebration last year, we wanted to create a lasting acknowledgment of our hard-working production professionals so we teamed up with Open Eye Art to create this community art project. Each individual circle of color you see on the plaques to the left was made by hundreds of Oregonian production professionals that gathered at the OMPA Source Book release party last month and tried their hands at spin art.

Often we get asked how we got into the luxury restroom trailers business. Well, they say that ‘necessity is the mother of invention’, and that was certainly true in our case. Back in 2011 when I was planning my outdoor wedding and checking into outdoor restroom options, I found there weren’t really options beyond smelly construction Porta-Potties. When the wedding was over, we resolved to change that.
We knew that weddings weren’t the only events that deserved better sanitation options; and, in the years since we founded Luxury Restroom Trailers, we’ve brought a new level of cleanliness, comfort, and service to outdoor restrooms for corporate events, movie shoots, store remodels, and farm-to-table dinners.

Pretty great, right? Read more from our Green Film Shooting friends in Europe, and how you can try it. Continue reading... “Mushrooms Are Now A Solution For Eco-Minded Set Designers”

Sundance Film Festival announced its lineup today and we are pleased to see that Debra Granik‘s (“Winter’s Bone”) new feature, “Untitled Debra Granik Project” was just accepted in the festival’s World Premiere section. Granik wrote (with Anne Rosellini) and directed this #OregonMade film. “A father and daughter live a perfect but mysterious existence in Forest Park, a beautiful nature reserve near Portland, Oregon, rarely making contact with the world. A small mistake tips them off to authorities sending them on an increasingly erratic journey in search of a place to call their own.
