Cast Iron Studios co-sponsors Oregon Film History Mural

by Cast Iron Studios Staff

We are super proud to be one of the community sponsors of a new exhibit at Portland International Airport, which was unveiled on Tuesday, May 29th, 2018, and will remain in place for at least the next two years!

The new Oregon Film History Mural and Poster Exhibit showcases #OregonMade productions such as Paint Your Wagon, Stand By Me, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and more recent projects, such as Twilight, Grimm, and Wild.


The mural is located in the Portland International Airport’s south pedestrian tunnel which connects the parking garage to the terminal. It provides travelers with over 160 uninterrupted feet of mural art and posters, representing a small collection of Oregon’s rich film history, and casts a light on Oregon’s unique locations, talented industry members, and film-friendly environment.



The mural and exhibit have been created in support and collaboration with Portland International Airport and the PDX Art Program.



It was made possible through partnership with Travel Oregon, Travel Portland, and additional community members Pacific Grip & Lighting, PDXpendables, Koerner Camera Systems, BLT Productions and Hollywood Theatre.
Darren Cools illustrated and designed the mural in collaboration with Oregon Film, via the Oregon Made Creative Foundation.



We’re excited to be a part of this great project. Check it out at PDX next time you travel, and be sure to post photos to your social media accounts using the hashtag #OregonMade!

‘Grimm’ may be ending, but its impact on Portland remains

by Georgia Luke

Many are mourning the ending of Grimm, which aired its final episode, “The End,” on Friday, March 31st.

Kristi Turnquist of The Oregonian talked to the cast, as well as other players in the Oregon film industry–including our own Lana Veenker–about the impact that Grimm had on Portland. According to Kristi:

[S]aying goodbye to “Grimm” isn’t just a sentimental farewell to a TV favorite. For Portland viewers, it’s the end of a show that made a significant impact on the city, from showcasing Oregon scenery to bringing jobs and money into the local economy.

[…]

Lana Veenker […] estimates that close to 1,000 individual Northwest actors were cast on “Grimm” in principal roles, and that nearly 200 of them appeared in multiple episodes, such as Danny Bruno, who played Bud, the beaver-like Eisbiber Wesen.

“Not only did ‘Grimm’ provide a lot of work for local actors,” Veenker says, “but it also helped raise the bar on the level of talent here.”

Veenker agrees that, thanks to “Grimm,” more people know about Portland, and not just as the hipster enclave satirized in “Portlandia.”

“I remember, going back to Season 1 of ‘Grimm,’ the producers telling us that in Los Angeles, they kept asking, ‘When you’re shooting in the forest up there, how do you get that color of green on the trees?’ They thought it was lighting, or special effects.”
