SALEM, Ore. — Hollywood producers brought television actors, fake snow and a guy in a Sasquatch costume to the Oregon capitol on Thursday.
They were trying to convince state lawmakers to divert more money to support film and video production.
Actors and executives from NBC’s Grimm, TNT’s Leverage and IFC’s Portlandia were on hand for the high-tech show in Salem on Thursday.
Those television shows are all filmed in Portland. The measure has passed one House committee and is awaiting action in another.
