Jerry Day with the Film Commission said that there have been several productions filmed in Tuolumne County that have had huge economic impacts.

A recent production that Day said is the perfect example of the benefits of film coverage is the June Road Productions Pilot of Three Wishes, which will in Day´s words give Tuolumne County an hour of free air time; advertising that would normally cost more than $400,000.
