Call For Photos of Hancock County
The Kentucky Film Office is looking for photos to display on the Kentucky Film Office website of each county showing possible film locations for movies, documentaries, and other film uses. These photos can be of bodies of water, buildings, barns, stores, abandoned buildings, train tracks, fields, woods, houses, cabins, anything that could possibly be used as a film location. Locations generally are not your typical tourist spots, but interesting sites for a range of film types.
If you own property that you would be willing to
let a film company use, please send in pictures. If approved
the pictures will be listed on the Film Office website.
Contact information will not be on the website and only given out to
serious inquires for a film locations site. Having a photo
chosen as a possible location does not guarantee terms.
Those will be negotiated and defined with the property owner.
The Kentucky Film Office is getting many inquiries
as to possible locations for films in Kentucky.
If one were chosen in Hancock County it could mean an economic boost from expenditures the film production would have in our county!
For more information or to submit photos, contact FilminKY@aol.com or call 270-316-0818
Photos can be submitted anytime.
