The Adirondack Film Commission is seeking information from local businesses for free listings in a Filmmaker Resource Guide.
The Film Commission — which is operated by the Adirondack Film Society to promote film, TV and video production in Essex County, and to assist filmmakers and videographers once they’re here — is developing a resource guide to help filmmakers and production companies find the services they need from local businesses. Such services range widely from camera operators and sound mixers to electricians and caterers — essentially, any service or skill that might be needed before, during, or after a film, TV or video shoot, including commercials.
The Adirondack Film Commission has been receiving an increasing number of inquiries from filmmakers and production companies interested in shooting in the area. The resource guide is an opportunity for local businesses and individuals with a service to offer to let these production companies and creative teams know what’s available locally so that they don’t have import these services from outside vendors and contractors.
If you or your company have one or more services that you think may be useful to filmmakers, e-mail the following information to [email protected], including “resource guide” in the subject line: a brief description (maximum 300 words) in paragraph form of your company and/or the services it/you provide; and, if you offer more than one service, a separate list of those services in bullet-point form. The resource guide will cross-reference the descriptive business listings with an index of services provided.
Listing your business/service in the guide is free. If you have any questions or would like more information on the resource guide or the Film Commission, contact Adirondack Film Society Operations Manager Fred Balzac at the e-mail listed above or (518) 523-3456.
