The Hudson Valley Movies

Film industry's in lover of the Hudson Valley. Leading entertainment companies and movie makers are leaving NYC to make movies and TV shows here in the Valley. If you think of movies, you' re forgetting Hollywood. Remember the Hudson Valley, where the movie business is booming right in our own back yards. "The year 2017 was a great year, especially because of John Krasinski's A Quiet Place at Paramount," says Laurent Rejto, founding principal of the Hudson Valley Movie Commission.

So far, A Quiet Place, shot in Pawling, Beacon and on the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail in New Paltz, has earned more than $270 million around the world. "Last year was also great] because of the TV show Big Dog and small independent movies like Nancy with John Leguizamo and Steve Buscemi, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, which won the Grands Prix at Sundance, and Diane, who recently won the highest accolade at the Tribeca Film Festival," Rejtods.

Hudson Valley Film Commission has been working with movie production since 2000. "We' had the chance to work with Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds, Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock, The Night Listener with Robin Williams and many other big and small films," says Rejto. Hudson Valley's attractiveness as a world-class shooting venue attracted attention at the Hudson Valley Movie Industry Conference, which will take place on June 5 at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park.

There are twenty other films currently being made in Hudson Valley, among them Last Vermont Christmas, which was recently made in Rhinebeck, and Erin Cahill. While there are currently no organised movie trips in the Hudson Valley, supporters can come and see the areas where various films have been made. Such as, Paul Newman enthusiasts can beacon where the actors shoot sequences from Nobody's Fool.

Clooney George enthusiasts should go to Blooming Grove and Cornwall in Orange County, where Michael Clayton's scene was made. TV enthusiasts can also get into the commotion. A number of beloved shows have been made in and around Westchester County, among them Law & Order SVU, Gotham and Madame Secretary. Daredevil recently made a film for upstarts at Catskill's Windham.

The Catskills are where movie and TV enthusiasts leap for the Roxbury Motel and its theme rooms. The Hudson Valley productions will still appeal to movie makers and enthusiasts in equal measure, so hopefully more touring, sightseeing and even museum visits will be added.
