ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Alaska Film Office says the number of producers interested in filming in Alaska is the highest yet -- and it's a trend that's growing.
Whether it's commercials or feature films, the Alaska Film Office says there's a rising interest in producing films in the Last Frontier.
Mike Porcaro, CEO of Porcaro Communications, has coordinated hundreds of commercials for his clients, including a recent shoot for GCI. He attributes the increase in business to the scenery.
"Look what you've got, you got this incredible backdrop," Porcaro said. "When you look at Alaska you see so much, there's so many possibilities. It can look like so many different places on the globe."
Porcaro says there's an untapped talent base in an undiscovered area -- one he says won't stay hidden for long. That's one of the reasons why the Anchorage Film Office was recently created, to serve as a liaison for the growing interest to film in Alaska.
