“Maine Voices: Film-media community has room to become a far bigger part of Maine’s economy”

“Maine Voices: Film-media community has room to become a far bigger part of Maine’s economy”

The Maine Film Office has been saying this (loudly) for years and it’s great to hear more voices echo the message:  Maine’s film/tv/media industry is a viable – and important – part of Maine’s economy.  The film industry supplies value-added benefits and is inextricably linked to Maine art, business, tourism, and other industries. The value-added resources offered by the industry help get the Maine message out there and can be a valuable resource for the State’s recovery efforts and Economic Development Strategy.

The headline above is from Portland Press Herald’s “Maine Voice Columns”.  I encourage you to read the column and join the conversation.  Our collective voice is much louder than our individual voices.

 

"We have been fortunate to have made two movies in Maine — The Way We Get By and Beneath The Harvest Sky.” Maine is a very special state in that there are so many options for locations. Given its size, you can travel to northern Maine, southern Maine, all along the coast, and tell a number of different stories in totally unique worlds with each film having very distinctive looks. The abundance of locations combined with the incredible generosity of the people and communities, make filmmaking in Maine a pure joy. We would not be filmmakers today without the support from the people of Maine and we will be forever grateful."

- Gita Pullapilly and Aron Gaudet, The Way We Get By and Beneath the Harvest Sky

"Hands down, Karen Carberry Warhola in the Maine Film Office was the most supportive person I’ve ever spoken with, with any film project I’ve ever worked on."
