It was big news when Quentin Tarantino decided to film parts of “Django Unchained” in Wyoming. Other big Hollywood pictures that take place in Wyoming — namely the film adaptation of Annie Proulx’s Brokeback Mountain — are often filmed in New Mexico, which offers huge incentives for film makers. I spoke with the Wyoming Film Office, which operates under the state tourism department, about how they plan to keep the business coming to the Cowboy State.
“The Wyoming Film Office has grand plans for the state’s film industry, and it’s making progress. A prime-time network sitcom, and a major Hollywood movie have filmed here in the past year, but shooting in the Cowboy State still brings its own challenges. Wyoming Public Radio’s Rebecca Martinez filed this report.”
