A French music video starring Melissa Nâ€™Konde, an Athropologie Catalog Internet video, a Chevy commercial north of Bishop and a cast and crew from episodic television are some of the most recent film projects working locally.
To help accommodate the continued increase in film traffic, the Inyo Film Commission has begun to search for additional local resources for these productions on location.
