Local production company wants to bring big budget movies to Central Texas

Posted:
WACO - A local production company in Waco premiered one of their films on Friday night.

The goal for the company is to eventually bring big budget films to Central Texas.

The movie is called "Cowboy and Lucky's Last Stand" and it's produced by RedCTV. It features two cowboys who run into a corrupt cop, but they end up finding themselves in a fight with the whole department. It'll be showing for one week at Starplex in Waco and Cinemark in Temple and Bryan. The movie was filmed entirely in McLennan County with actors from the area.

"Our goal is to create an industry here where all of our dreams can come true," Writer and director Chris Hoke said. "We don't want to get rich or famous doing it, but we want to benefit people around us."

In the 2012-2013 year, the Texas Film Commission says 80 feature films were produced in Central Texas. Of those 80 films, 15 of them were part of the Texas Moving Image Industry Incentive Program(TMIIP) which means they received cash grants from the state. 

Those 15 projects created around 3,400 jobs in the Central Texas region.
