    I can't find any information at all about this "Hickory Films." The only thing I see is the bit about them doing a "statewide search" for land.

    Does anyone have any more information on them?

  • Erin Newell would be the point person for that per moenia urbis. There are tons of indie film companies out there, some legit and some not.

    Just because you can't find them via Google or IMDB doesn't mean they aren't legit and there isn't a buck to be made. I personally know this one guy locally that writes and licenses music for indie films and documentaries.A foot in the door is sometimes a leg up. FYI, a recent Kevin Sorbo movie was filmed in French Lick http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1137455/

  • Just one more short opinion, don't turn your nose up at films that don't ride on the backs of Warner Brothers or Disney. Even "stinkers" make money. Remember, Lions Gate was once a small indie company and huge box office sellers like SAW started with a very humble 18 day production and grew from there.

  • Tourists? They don't make any non business owner money. We need jobs not a bunch of people to give us money when we hold up our will work for food signs, geez wake up people. The people who want tourists already have jobs and WILL profit from it, they don't care about the ones who need work.

  • This is a great idea and I believe that the local economy could greatly benefit from this.If there were any certain site I would like to see filmed in a major motion picture,it would have to be the Tulip Trussel because it is historic and I also used to live on that road and it would be amazing to watch his movie and be able to say "Hey I know where that's at."Kind of like the feeling folks get when we watch 'Breaking Away',which was filmed in Bloomington only on a more personal level because many of us not only commute to and through these places but we have been raised there. -Class of 2011
