Hello, this is Anthony Riley and Margaret Carter, Directors of the Barstow Film Office. We wanted to take a moment to share our vision for the film office and the numerous successes over this past year.
The film industry is increasing its use of desert locations for feature films and commercial/industrial projects. The City of Barstow has implemented an aggressive strategy to enhance our community to the entertainment industry and allow Barstow to compete for a greater market share of regional, domestic and international production.
The Barstow Film Office operates within the Economic Development Department applying an aggressive strategy through successful marketing to increase filming opportunities for the city and region.Public/Private partnerships for expanding filming locations, competitive fees for permits, aggressive marketing to the industry and building strong relationships with location scouts have led the Barstow Film Office to a very successful last 5 years, and we continue to remain competitive in our outreach efforts to ensure both a positive economic impact for our community.
