You oughta be in pictures, Hays County

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Hays County Commissioners Court votes today on a proclamation aimed at bringing more film industry business to the county and to launch a campaign dubbed “50 Locations in 50 Days.” According to a press release about the push, the “San Marcos Cinema Club, in conjunction with other municipal, county and university groups, aims to register 50 Hays County properties in 50 days on the Texas Film Commission’s website as potential locations for television/film production … Starting July 16, the coalition will sign up willing locations in San Marcos and across Hays County as potential sites for the TV/film industry. A Cinema Club rep will be available to assist property owners with their application – explaining the financial perks, taking photographs of the property and answering any lingering questions – with a goal of registering 50 properties in 50 days.” Hays County property owners are encouraged to register their locations, and can find help doing so by calling (512) 557-5837 or emailing “By enticing the TV/film industry to Hays County, we not only get to show off the unique assets and geography that our corner of Texas has to offer, but we can also potentially boost our local economy significantly, with particular benefit for our arts and cultural organizations,” said San Marcos City Council Member Lisa Prewitt.
