Another Independent feature has announce plans to shoot in Minnesota. LA-based Dead of Winter Productions plans to shoot “Dead of Winter” in April and May according to a crew call on the Minnesota Film and TV Board’s web site. The six week long shoot will begin on April 9 with Jeff Fisher set to direct.
O.K., I get it. Minnesota has a reputation for being cold and “wintery.” And there is the Snowbate program, Minnesota’s production incentive program. Still it seems oddly pessimistic to shoot a film called “Dead of Winter” in April and May, even in Minnesota.
