Over the last twenty years Portland, OR has developed a reputation for being friendly to cable plus movie crews… This town has always been a buyer of the arts… Galleries, art museums, plus open forums have been regular since the land was first settled.
That’s one of the many things that makes Portland such an awesome neighborhood – it supports artists! I first moved here about ten years ago, at the time it was supposed to be temporary although I just never left.
I was slated to star in a low budget horror movie being shot in Portland… My associate and I made the movie, however my associate and I never saw the inside of a Dipson Theater, except for the outdated locale in Portland my associate and I rented to screen it to our friends. I wound up getting a task in a Portland cannabis dispensary, plus the rest is history. I applied for a task as a budtender, however once the owner saw my credentials he asked if I would be interested in filming cable commercials for a local Portland cable station. I jumped at the chance! Filming cable spots for cannabis shops wasn’t my dream, although I enjoyed being in Portland plus hoped this would lead to something more. The commercials were a minor hit, which led to other Portland suppliers contacting me to direct their ads, then out of respect to the first cannabis shop that hired me, I never filmed ads for any of his Portland rivals… Now that the film community in Portland is starting to become more active, I hope I can start making films again.
