VIRGINIA FILMMAKERS AND FILM PRODUCERS

Virginia has served as a backdrop for such films as War of the Worlds, Minority Report, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Lincoln, and Cold Mountain, among many others.

Having been trained on-the-job in real film production companies and on the set, each of these individuals was personally trained and mentored by some of the top filmmakers in the industry today.
