Norfolk Film Commission Off To A Great Start

NORFOLK - The Norfolk Area Film Commission is off to a great start. On the same day Hollywood director and Omaha native Alexander Payne announced he plans to shoot his new film in Northeast Nebraska, it was also announced the community has established the local Film Commission -- an effort to attract and promote television and film crews to come to the region. Payne commended Norfolk's efforts in establishing the commission. He mentioned Valentine has started a similar effort and hopes other Nebraska communities can do the same thing. The logo for the commission is based on the famous "Hollywood" sign.
