MovieMaker Magazine goes "On Location" in New Hampshire

I received the following from MovieMaker Magazine today. How about we provide MovieMaker with some great quotes from our New Hampshire filmmakers, both in-state and out-of-state!

What's more, how about we kill two birds with one stone: If you do send in a quote to MovieMaker, why not copy the film office on your e-mail, as well? We'd love to have some quotes from you about filming in the Granite State to use in promotional material.

Along those same lines - stay tuned - we'll be looking for one minute video testimonials from our state's filmmakers about why they love New Hampshire! We'll be posting those onto the web shortly, starting off with a great clip from New Hampshire's own, Ken Burns. If you've got something you'd like to say about New Hampshire, roll your camera and send it to us on DVD!

Best regards,

Matthew Newton
State of New Hampshire
Film and Television Office

MovieMaker Magazine, the world's best-selling independent movie magazine, is going "On Location" to New Hampshire for an upcoming edition of our bimonthly magazine. As part of the magazine's ongoing "On Location" article, we'd like to explore the moviemaking scene in New Hampshire and are looking for your help. In 50 words or less, we'd like you to tell us what it is about the state that inspires you as a moviemaker-what benefits it offers that few other locales can-and why you choose to live, work and make movies here. Who knows-your submission just might make it into the pages of our magazine!

Submissions should be sent via email to onlocation@moviemaker.com and include your state name in the subject line. Please include your full name, title and one or two film credits with your submission. Deadline for submissions is February 6, 2008.
