Tuolumne County Film Commission Launches Online Resource Guide
The Tuolumne County Film Commission is keeping up with industry trends by launching an online Film Tuolumne County Resource Guide. The guide will provide production companies extensive insight to what Tuolumne County has to offer as a premier location for filming. Bethany Wilkinson, Tuolumne County Film Liaison, is gathering information from local film-friendly partners and compiling them into an easy to use guide. The Film Tuolumne County Resource Guide includes locations, caterers, beauty services, transportation, on screen talent, local film makers, and any further information that is helpful to film producers. Wilkinson states, “The Tuolumne County Film Commission is dedicated to showcasing what the county offers productions and studios scouting the area. This guide is one step in bridging the gap between studios and the public's involvement in bringing film shoots to the county and revitalizing a beloved part of our history.”
The Film Tuolumne County Resource Guide will launch the week of December 2, 2019. To access the guide, visit: http://www.filmtuolumne.org/resources.html. For Tuolumne County residents who would like to contribute to the guide, visit: http://www.filmtuolumne.org/resource-guide.html, or call Bethany Wilkinson at (209)533-4420. Submissions are free to list, and services are welcome to submit photos to be included on the Film Tuolumne County Resource Guide.
The Tuolumne County Film Commission is part of Visit Tuolumne County. Together they are working on a Film Familiarization Tour (Film FAM) for Spring 2020. The Film Fam will bring in 3-4 film producers to tour film friendly locations, experience local dining, and attractions. Furthermore, the Tuolumne County Film Commission is a Bronze Sponsor of the California On Location Awards, which includes logo placement on the official website placed next to Paramount Pictures, a half page ad in the program, and attendance to the awards show in December 2019.
