The Four Corners Film Office is dedicated to supporting film, television and media production in the Four Corners Region.
Let us know what we can do to assist you.
Overview
As you will see below, we have been juggling many different aspects of the office, and have some exciting things happening!  The most frequent request we get is the need for PA's (production assistants) so we are really excited to be working with the San Juan County Film Office and supporting their PA training next month.  Details are below.  If you are interested in getting into the film production world, this is where you start!

We continue to work with local, regional, state and national entities to expand our expertise and service, but we need your help!  If you are working on productions, have experience (or know of someone) please contact us!  The more we build our local film community and work together, the more work we will be able to bring here. 

Please, please feel free to contact us anytime to check in, say hello, ask questions, or let us know what you are up to--and we always welcome your suggestions and comments.

Please also follow our Facebook Page as this is our regular outlet for updates and information.

Coordinator News
We have been making the rounds, spreading the word, and trying to create as much production as we can in the Four Corners.

We have met with The Colorado Office of Film, Television and Media for a presentation to the students and faculty at Adams State University, met with Rocky Mountain Animation Labs and met with Cortez High School and Fort Lewis College, met with the San Juan County Film Office and the Region 9 Board of Directors and will be meeting shortly with the Dolores County and the Ouray Chamber/Community.

We have had multiple contacts with outside production companies and have done a tremendous amount of work and research for two projects in particular that we hope will be here this summer.

Most importantly we have been trying to outreach the local community and crew--and would love to speak to you!  Please give me a call or email if I haven't spoken to you in awhile and let me know what you are up to!
