Film and TV at the Haywood County Tourism Office

Written by 

The Haywood County Tourism Development Authority has officially revived the Haywood County Film Commission. 

Becky Seymour, video marketing manager of the Haywood TDA, is committed to draw more TV and film production to Haywood County. The TDA is currently working with Advantage West in Asheville and supplying information on Haywood County when presented with location requests for film and television.  

Since 2010, the NC Film Tax Incentive has fueled three strong years for film and television production in the state. In 2013 North Carolina as a whole had 5,700 production days, $254 million in spending and 25,000 job opportunities from film and television production.  

Production companies commonly request information on location, support services and crew. Many locations can be considered as long as the property/business owners are willing to accommodate the crew and their needs, Seymour said. Support services needed by production crews would be local caterers, environmental services, accounting and hair and makeup experts. 

The directory forms and categories are provided at www.haywoodcountytourismdevelopment.com/haywood-county-film-commission - under the “Haywood County Film Commission” tab.

For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
