Minnesota is quickly becoming a mecca for filmmakers. In recent years, several production companies have chosen the Northstar state as the backdrop for their projects, and one producer believes this trend is just the beginning.

Clara Davis told Fox 21 News, "We're on the verge of evolving into a significant film destination and industry. That's how Atlanta began, and that's how other locations like Arizona got their start – as small, burgeoning hubs that eventually blossomed into thriving industries. This growth is not only beneficial for the local economy but also for the residents who live and work here."
