"The Hudson Valley Film Commission was a huge support to Touch Productions from when we first made initial contact with them, the first scout in Woodstock and continuously throughout the project. They have introduced us to an amazing group of local people who became part of our team. The website was a great help when we were organizing casting sessions and looking for volunteers to help on the project. We also were able to advertise for rental properties on the website, which was very useful. Laurent was a great help with National Geographic and their press department before and during filming. Using local knowledge helped us tremendously throughout our stay in the US. They were a huge help and we could not have done it without the Film Commission.“ (The Human Footprint)

“The work experience was wonderful. Everyone involved at the location as well as at the film commission was an absolute pleasure to work with. I cannot think of anything that they were not helpful with or would need to provide that they did not accommodate with a smile and helping hand.” (3 Music Video)

“It was wonderful! The film commission, on a moment’s notice, provided access to talent and vendors in an area we were not familiar with.” (Before it Had a Name)

“We had a great experience shooting in the area and hope to shoot a feature there soon.” (Man)

“The Hudson Valley Film Commission was a tremendous asset and support for our production.  Coming from New York City and shooting “upstate”, we didn’t have an accurate grasp on the local communities in terms of resources for crew, lodging, food, locations, local press and government agencies, among many other essentials, and the film commission helped make this transition as seamless as possible.  Also, their website was a great help when trying to find and contact local resources and amenities.  We had a great experience shooting upstate in large part due to the guidance and assistance of the film commission.” (The Cake Eaters)

“HVFC was a great resource for local crew and any local suppot that we needed at any given time.” (Racing Daylight)

“It was a pleasure to work with you. Thank you for everything.” (The Night Listener)

“Fantastic -- we worked with Bill Stitt, who was an amazing resource and was always prepared with creative solutions. We would definitely shoot in the Woodstock area with Bill and the help of the Commission again.” (The Homestead Strike)

“Laurent was very helpful in providing advice about local permitting and vendors.” (Superheroes)

“We loved filming in Athens, Greene County. It was a perfect location for us.” (War of the Worlds)

“Thank you so much for all of your help in facilitating our shoot in Woodstock. Everyone in Woodstock was great and we had a really wonderful experience. The rest of the shoot went very well and Suzi says the footage looks really beautiful - so we can't wait to send you a rough cut! Thanks again - we couldn't have done it without you!!! (No Shoulder)

“Fabulous job by film commission in getting us in touch with all the right people. Great locations, locals were very welcoming and warm.”
(A&E BIO.. Henry Lee Lucas)

“A truly great place to shoot a film! Thank you!” (Bomb)

“HVFC was extremely helpful. We would not have otherwise found the location, which was perfect for what we needed. Thanks!” (Lonely Man of Faith)

“We were thrilled at all the attention the Film Commission afforded us. Your assistance during our scouting trip, ideas and suggestions were extremely helpful. We were very pleased with the top quality work from the local production assistant that you recommended. Many thanks to you and your staff. The Film Commission is tops in our book!” (The Artists Experience)
