New Hampshire Film and Television Office launches forum on Yahoo!® Groups
(Concord, NH) - The New Hampshire Film and Television Office is pleased to announce that it has launched a new online forum focusing exclusively on the New Hampshire film and television industry. The forum, hosted by Yahoo!® Groups, made its debut on October 6.
"There is so much new technology today," says Matthew Newton, Film Specialist managing the New Hampshire Film and Television Office in Concord. "One of the things we continued to hear over the last couple of years was that there was simply not enough communication between the Film Office and the New Hampshire film industry. With so many tools now available on the web, this online community will be a great first step in bridging that communication gap."
Anyone can become a member of the free forum, although the topics will be limited to all aspects of film and television production in the state. Members will be able to post news items and opportunities, buy, sell or trade production equipment, list upcoming film screenings, share thoughts and opinions about film and television production in New Hampshire, as well as receive timely information from the Film Office regarding programs, events and special announcements.
"One of the best things about utilizing the web as a communication tool is that we can use the forum to schedule live chat sessions," says Newton. "On occasion we can hold what would essentially be an industry town meeting, where, at a given time, our members would be able to log on and join real-time discussions."
To become a member of the Film Office Online Forum, visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nhfilmoffice.
The New Hampshire Film and Television Office, as part of the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources, works to expand business activity and employment throughout the state by acting as a liaison between the film industry and an established network of government agencies, the state’s film industry workforce, and local property owners. The office is responsible for location assistance, public relations, and general production support in an effort to broaden the cultural and economic impact of film and television production in the state.
