Theme: Made in Vermont is a cleverly written film that shows the adventures and struggles of a diverse group of inexperienced Vermont filmmakers boldly jumping into the film industry. Their story is portrayed as a film, within a film, within a film.
Relation to Vermont: The production of Made in Vermont has presented our team with an opportunity to build community. Throughout our making of the movie, we support and celebrate Vermont and Vermonters by the boosting of patronage to businesses, providing opportunity for the showcasing of talent, and by cinematically bringing Vermont landscape, architecture and its people to the big screen. We are using only Vermont talent, locations, and musicians. We actively network via phone call, email, personal visits and social media to express our gratitude and to bring awareness and notoriety to the many individuals and businesses contributing to this film. We have been featured in a WCAX News Production in their “Made in Vermont” series, and we have over 700 fans on our Facebook page
