Eureka, have we got a film school for you! Seriously, you can still play your favorite video game at the pizza place you grew up around the corner from AND go to film school. Alas, it cannot be, you say? Oh yes siree Bob, it sure can. The Film Connection in Eureka has made it happen. You can join forces with a real-life working film industry mentor who will take you on a hands-on guided tour of how to make it in the film biz. You can’t beat that with a stick.
Some of the well-known movies that have been filmed in Eureka include Humboldt County (the movie), Outbreak, Jennifer Eight, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, the documentary film Where You From, and the TV movie Salem’s Lot. Los Angeles is a day’s drive or a short plane ride away, making Eureka a great location for both film students and filmmaking professionals.
