Thanks so much for the great show, and for taking the time to examine Oregon's steadily-growing film and TV industry!
I want to especially thank you for having Todd Freeman on, and for taking the call from the gentleman in Baker City who put together the film festival for his students. While big-budget, out-of-state productions like Leverage and Twilight tend to grab peoples attention, it's important to remember that we have several producers and directors here in Oregon who are making films, television shows, web series, video games, and a host of other projects. Our industry isn't just about supporting big projects that come in from out-of-state - it's also about Oregonians hiring Oregonians to produce projects they can market and sell outside the state (you can see a few of these Oregonian-produced projects right here, in fact!) The money that comes from these sales gets re-invested in Oregon - and it continues to build our local industry as those producers and directors move on to create their next project. That's why I started http://www.oregonfilmandtvdollars.com - to try and track the way these film and TV dollars -both from big-budget out-of-state projects and Oregon-produced projects - are re-invested into the state.
