REDDING, Calif. — Movie trailers and film crews stole the spotlight in downtown Redding Thursday afternoon. Surrounding streets were blocked off to the public for the shooting of a feature-length film.
Shasta and Tehama County Film Commissioner, Sabrina Jurisich, said there's not much they can say about it but it is a big project.
“We have definitely had other feature-length projects But to the scale and degree," Jurisich said. "This one is really home basing in our community, so I think this is probably the biggest production impact we’ve had in this area at least that I’m aware of. ”
This isn't the only project going on in Shasta County and there was even another shoot on the same day.
Jurisich said these projects bring money to the local economy because crew members need places to stay and eat. Last year was a record-breaker in economic impact brought in by films, but they expect to top it this year.
“Last year we did have our record-breaking year where we hit nearly $2 million in economic impact and what we’re expecting to do in the first half of 2022 is double that, and that’s with a series of productions combined," Jurisich said.
If you want to see your face on the big screen the feature-film production is looking for about 100 extras to be a part of the film. You can apply for a role on their website.
