Tarantino Praises Wyoming Location

Tarantino

Django Unchained continues to draw considerable attention at box offices around the country, and Wyoming tourism interests are quick to point out the exposure of the state’s landscape certainly won’t hurt that industry in the months ahead.  However, how did those associated with the film feel about the experience?  Director Quentin Tarantino calls Wyoming “a fantastic place to shoot…it’s beautiful country.”  He quickly adds, “If you’re doing a western or anything that requires you to be in this beautiful, yet rugged terrain, it’s just a glorious place to go. It just screams ‘America.’” Tarantino said the script’s call for snow is what drew the movie company to Jackson Hole, and with the rugged Tetons in the background, he says (in his words) “we just shot the heck out of them – it was just beautiful.”  State officials say they also heard from the company about how accommodating the community was during the shoot adding to a positive experience all around.  With such conversation around Hollywood, Wyoming Film Office Manager Michelle Howard says her bureau is already seeing that impact from the folks in the film industry who believe Wyoming must be a good place to film.

  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]

  • Tame that recoil - November 25, 2014
    You don’t have to put up with nasty recoil when you’re hunting. Even if you’re hunting our state’s bigger animals, like elk, moose, or even bison, today’s technology can take a lot of the sting out of your hunting rifle. A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
