More Films in West Virginia!

I have no idea of where to start, but I just moved to Charleston, WV from Philadelphia and to me, there are a lot of advantages in filming in the mountain state.

I've been here two months and I've already seen a lot of great places that could be used for movie scenes.  I don't know what exactly a location scout looks for when considering a place to film, but the main things that I see is complaints from the citizens.  Being from Philly and moving to such a small place, the traffic here is nothing to back home.

Sometimes it's pretty frustrating to watch tv and to see that these actors are supposed to be in a certain state/area and you know the truth all along.  "They didn't film that there."  And you kinda feel cheated, why didn't they come here to film?  There's thousands of reasons why not.  But there are also thousands of reasons why they should.  And if a picture is worth a thousand words, then how about these pictures and a video.



Why am I doing this?  Because it's fun.  I think that watching a movie come together in your area is something that people can talk about later.  I read about the taxes and the money that comes back to the state is good for the citizens like myself as well.  

I was an extra once, no I don't want to be an actress, I want to be an author and that's a whole nother story, but I was an extra once and even though I didn't talk to that many people I still had fun just sitting and watching everyone work.  It was kind of like watching the extras on a dvd special, except for the fact that I was right there!  

The pilot didn't air.  It would have been fun if it had, but the point is, I think it'll be a good thing for everyone if more movies were filmed in West  Virginia.  I think I know two people who would think that this is a good idea.  

  
That's right Jennifer Garner and Sam Trammell have both lived in Charleston, WV.
