We are also a member of the organization FLICS (Film Liaisons in California Statewide). The Film Commissioner, Cassandra Hesseltine, is currently serving her second term as the President of FLICS.

We are more than honored to be nominated for Most Outstanding Film Commission for the 2019 LMGI Awards for our work on Disney's A Wrinkle in Time!

It's always a pleasure to work with productions when they come to film in the Redwood Region, especially when they are a joy to work with like A Wrinkle in Time. From the first scouting trips, filming, wrap-out, the building excitement as we saw our locations in trailers and featurettes, to the Give Back Screening Disney hosted for the Redwood Region before it's opening weekend, it was a labor of love. Disney, Ava, Location Manager Alison Taylor, and the whole crew made our work fun. We love a challenge and would do it all again.

Thank you to LMGI for the nomination!

We'd like to congratulate our co-nominees and wish them the best of luck!
