Calaveras Attracts Film Attention

Sponsored by:

Angels Camp, CA — The Calaveras Visitors Bureau is working hard to attract filmmakers to the county.

Visitors Bureau Executive Director Lisa Reynolds just returned from the 2007 Locations Show in Santa Monica where she was lobbying for Calaveras to be a leading film location.

Reynolds says Calaveras got a lot of attention. She met with Paramount, Fox, Touchstone Pictures, Sony Pictures, and Warner Brothers.

Already in 2007, Calaveras County was the location for a short film, a reality show and a national television commercial.

The Calaveras Film Commission is also anticipating an independent film production scheduled to shoot later this year.

For more information, contact Reynolds at (209) 736-0049.
