Show business is booming in Oregon…and FREE screening tickets!

Casting Director Lana Veenker joined KATU’s Helen Raptis and Dave Anderson on AM Northwest to talk about the latest productions and what all the activity means for Oregonians.

For more information on the productions and how to get involved, see our previous blog post below.

SUPPORT OREGON FILM & GET A FREE SCREENING TICKET TO “MEEK’S CUTOFF”

Excited about all the movies and TV shows shooting in Oregon? Want to help us make sure these clean, green, high-paying jobs keep coming in, not only for local film industry professionals, but for individuals and small businesses all across the state?

We need you to show your support of extending the Oregon Production Investment Fund (OPIF), the successful incentive program that has attracted all of these productions to Oregon.

2011 is projected to be our busiest year ever for film and TV, and we want to keep the momentum going!

The program is due to sunset in 2012. Without your help, it could all go away, so please join us!

HOW? WHERE? WHEN?

Join us in Salem on March 15th at 4:00 pm, when a conceptual video about the program will be taped on the Capitol steps. We want your presence and your stories, to help raise awareness of the powerful economic and cultural impact of the film and video industry in Oregon.

SPECIAL OFFER!

RSVP for the video shoot, and you’ll get a FREE ticket to the exclusive 7:00 pm screening of “Meek’s Cutoff” that follows at the Historic Elsinore Theatre (normally $20!).

“Meek’s Cutoff,” directed by Kelly Reichardt and starring Michelle Williams, was filmed in Eastern Oregon and has been shown at Venice, Toronto and Sundance Film Festivals.

The individuals and businesses below have made an extraordinary show of support by donating the cost of the tickets AND bus service from Portland so that you can go, because they understand the value of this legislation to our state.

Free tickets are limited, so RSVP now at OMPA.org. Be sure to mention that Lana Veenker Casting referred you, so that your ticket comes from our allocation!

    A trip to Salem for the screening sounds like fun, but I can't make it because I'm working as an extra on "Leverage" that day! Thanks Lana and the OFC for your help in bringing this work to Oregon.
