Heather Page '85: Texas Film Commission Director
Cinema major Heather Page '85 has been behind the camera plenty of times. As a motion picture camera-person for 25 years her credits include “The Green Mile,’’ ‘‘Armageddon” and the TV show “Friday Night Lights.”
Today she is working in the industry from a different angle. As the Texas film commission director, Page collaborates film production offices of all sizes - from home-grown to major motion picture - matching them with Texan resources.
In an Amarillo Globe News profile, Page notes: ““The job involves a lot of strategic planning and responsiveness. I direct my office to focus on customer service, sharing and gathering of resources and communication. We are a clearing house for private and state resources for everyone from the studio executive and filmmaker to a local crew member seeking a job or a homeowner or rancher who wants to make their location available for filming.”
