By: Suzanne Elfstrom | June 11, 2012
Looking for the ideal turn-of-the-century mining town, winding mountain road, prairie sunset, Jeff Bridges-worthy ranch or any of thousands of other iconic Montana locations? In addition to the new grant program, the Montana Film Office is also rolling out a new location app to help filmmakers search and find their idyllic Montana shooting location. From any set, office or cafe, the free iPhone app allows location scouts, producers and directors to search Montana's Reel-Scout database, including more than 150,000 photos of Montana's landscapes, towns and historic buildings. It also connects filmmakers to Montana's production crews and support services. The app is currently available for download at the App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/montana-film-office/id524467139?mt=8.
