The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs is seeking an attractive main street, chiseled landscapes and other stunning views from across the state that could be the centerpiece or backdrop for a movie, or a catalog photograph. "In order to attract film and media projects to Iowa, we need to showcase what we have to offer," Liz Gilman, executive producer of the department's Produce Iowa, said in a news release. The request extends to all Iowans, including convention and visitors bureaus, chambers of commerce, homeowners, location scouts and others in all corners of the state. Produce Iowa also is seeking local talent, production crews and hospitality businesses such as hotels, restaurants and caterers to include in a media production directory.
