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 let snakes ruin your Labor Day - September 1, 2014
    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
