CELEBRATE THE KANSAS CITY FILM COMMISSION INSPIRATIONAL MISSION STATEMENT: WE MUST CREATE!!!
Again, my picky TKC pet peeve here is that NOBODY SHOOTS ON FILM ANYMORE . . . So, from the start Kansas City is behind the curve and using old terminology when it comes to attracting the new wave of digital movie production. It would be more appropriate to reference CINEMA which is the kind of big and/or and atrsy productions this cowtown wants to attract.
Anyhoo . . .

CELEBRATE THE INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE FROM KANSAS CITY'S NEWLY FUNDED FILM COMMISSION!!!
Note to TKC: Memorize this pitch and repeat to lady friend so that she'll star in my dirty "independent" mobile phone movie . . .
We Must Create
