Regional film director Sabrina Jurisich says having movies filmed in the Northstate helps nearly every aspect of the local economy.
"It gives people opportunities to fulfill a passion or life dream, being on set gives them something different to do, perhaps, than their normal daily activity," she elaborated. "It gives our community a sense of pride, because productions are choosing to film in our region. It helps our hotels fill, it helps our caterers. Really, everybody gets touched when a production comes into our region."
Besides Dresden Sun, which features actress Christina Ricci, the Northstate has been the host to several other films, including 2022 film Dog featuring Channing Tatum, upcoming movie Peter Five Eight, and local films like Stronger Than Carr.
