Django Unchained Draws Tourism Interest

January 3, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming No Comments
1138856 - Django Unchained

The movie “Django Unchained” has been drawing a large number of theater-goers since its release last week – prominently displaying the Tetons in a number of scenes.  That exposure is anticipated to pique the interest of vacationers in the months ahead, and Wyoming Film Office Manager Michelle Howard says the travel commission is already capitalizing on that exposure. She says they’re doing some stories regionally, they have film clips from the electronic press kit that they have used in a variety of ways through the social media, and they are endeavoring to tie the film to Wyoming.  She says they want those who go see the film to know the mountain scenes they are seeing are in our state and that they should come to Wyoming and the Jackson Hole area in particular if  they are looking for those types of scenic locales. Additionally, Howard says the experience the film crew had in filming here has already had a ripple effect in the industry.  She says her office is already seeing that impact from the folks in the film industry who believe Wyoming must be a good place to film since the Django production crew had a good experience.  Howard says feedback she has heard so far about the Wyoming scenes is that they are spectacular and some have said Wyoming appeared in the film more than they had anticipated.  Altogether, she says everything has been very positive about Wyoming’s role in the film.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
