Kicking off the summer season with new connections and old friends
Cast Iron Studios hosted an intimate happy hour this week, celebrating a few new members of the Oregon Media and Production Association. This select group was joined by the Cast Iron team, along with a handful of studio friends, to connect, discuss the latest up-and-coming production buzz, and enjoy some delicious bites and bevs!
There was much to celebrate, as the local production community here in Portland and surrounding areas has been a hotbed of activity. As KGW recently reported, eight television series recently wrapped filming in the state, including Netflix’s “Trinkets” and Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists,” in addition to feature films and stop-motion animation projects, currently on the rise. Tim Williams, Executive Director of the Oregon Governors Office of Film & Television, quotes an estimated 200 million dollars was spent last year alone. We’re rolling!
Thanks to everyone who joined in on the fun and conversation. Cheers to a new season with plenty of exciting, fresh projects barrelling down, or shall we say ‘shooting’ down the local production pipeline!
