37th Degree and the Upper Midwest Film Office

Filming wraps up on North Shore, more projects invited

Back in May, WTIP spoke with Riki McManus of the Upper Midwest Film Office — an interesting organization, working to bring movie and TV productions to the Midwest–and to the North Shore. In May and into June, a full-length movie was being filmed in Two Harbors, Silver Bay, and Grand Marais.

WTIP followed up with McManus, to learn how things went and about her role as a liaison between the community and filmmakers.

McManus also shared information on some pending legislation that could provide incentives for other producers to consider Minnesota as a place to make movies.

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence learns more in this interview.
