The North of Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau (NBCVB) and Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce co-hosted a special visit featuring Lisa Strout, the Director of the Massachusetts State Film Office.
Woodman’s Essex Room served a lovely luncheon– great chef and venue for events. (I wish I had a second raspberry tart.)
Lisa talked about film and media production in the state and how her department works with cities and towns. The crowd was mostly North Shore but I did speak with people who drove from Lowell, the Cape and western Massachusetts.
Surprising locations are shot here in MA and passed off as elsewhere. Mt. Fuji stood out as one example.
The mostly business crowd reacted favorably upon hearing that Disney engaged more than 1500 MA vendors for one movie production.
Speaking of vendors: Woodmans called out a list of vendors they work with who have generously contributed to their scholarship fund. You can see that on the back of their anniversary clam sign.
