The vision of the Film Office is to help Livermore and the Tri-Valley area economically and culturally. Location filming can have a huge economic impact on an area and benefits all business from hotels and restaurants to lumber yards and hardware stores to clothing stores and property rentals. The regional economic impact for a feature film based on a 14-week production period is about $14 million; even commercials can drop tens of thousands of dollars in a few day’s time. Location shoots also bring positive and valuable national attention to our area.
