Dear Representative Dean Sanpei,

Thank you for your continued support of the Utah film industry. With our annual magazine, special events, and growing social media, our non-profit FilmUtah continues to promote the state of Utah as a viable location to create films, television, and other forms of multi-media. By advertising Utah as an ideal place for film production, we hope to help increase tourism, assist local businesses, boost the economy, and provide jobs and opportunities to residents of every county of this beautiful state.

This was an incredibly busy and successful Sundance experience for FilmUtah.Designed by Jon Koenig of IONDE Design, the 2014 issue of the FilmUtah magazine was the best one yet. We featured several in-depth articles about exciting new film projects that were filmed in Utahthis past year, including Transformers 4, Need For Speed, andCloud 9. We also included some new infographics about the Utah Film Commission's excellent tax incentive, and an informative layout on the upcoming Park City Film Studio.

 

FilmUtah also went beyond the magazine publication and hosted several events during the Festival. We launched our co-magazine and non-profit, DigitalUtah, with a huge party featuring a 16'by 9'LED wall provided by Matrix Visual Solutions.  We recorded our new podcast series titled "FilmUTalk," where we conducted interviews with 18 different filmmakers and brand representatives who attended the festival. We hosted our continuing panel series "Financing Your Film Seminar," where we gave away $2,750 in cash prizes to attendees who gave the best film pitch. FilmUtah also covered several upcoming films that screened at the festival, includingHellion, which features Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad and Need for Speed. Plus, we engaged the Festival attendees with contests on our Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter sites and gave away tons of prizes, including Sundance apparel and gift cards.

 

In this upcoming year, FilmUtah will be adding to its magazine, events, and social media presence. We will start an online blog that features many of the stories we covered during the Festival. This blog will also provide highlights to articles that will be included in the 2015 issue of the FilmUtah magazine. We will also premiere "FilmUTalk" online. FilmUtah also plans to continue its social media growth by hosting more Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter contests throughout the year. 

Should you have any questions regarding the magazine, our events, or anything else, please feel free to contact me at any time. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,
