NH film and television producers say it's time to benefit from action in Mass.

We want to help make New Hampshire an attractive place to make films, commercials and tv shows.

We’re teaming up with a group of amazing people to make this happen.

We also think it’s important to work more closely with our neighbors in MA, ME and VT. It’s good to think regionally.

Join us for an upcoming networking event this June. More details to come soon.

“You believe there’s a better chance that 53-year-old Tim Wakefield could give the Red Sox five good innings right now than most of their starting rotation could, and he should wear his spikes to the NESN studios just in case he’s called upon.”

Wow this hidden gem, WANDA, is excellent and it's currently streaming on Criterion Channel.

It’s a shame Barbara Loden didn’t get to direct more films as she died far too young.

A four person crew and excellent filmmaking and I dig her take on filmmaking, “I really hate slick pictures... they’re too perfect to be believable. I don’t mean just the look. I mean in the rhythm, the cutting, the music-everything. The slicker the technique is the slicker the content becomes, until everything turns into Formica, including the people.”
https://www.criterion.com/films/29450-wanda

With her first and only feature film—a hard-luck drama she wrote, directed, and starred in—Barbara Loden turned in a groundbreaking work of American independent cinema, bringing to life a kind of character seldom seen on-screen. Set amid a soot-choked Pennsylvania landscape, and shot in an inten...
