Need a River?
by Angela Taylor
Here’s a cool location feature I discovered at AFM.
The West Virginia Film Office offers “River on Demand.”
Gauley River is managed by a flood-control dam and the
Army Corps of Engineers will open and close valves to
create just the river you need.
You can shoot different rivers in one manageable location.
Want rapids? Want a calm river? You can get both on Gauley.
Obviously, there's a heap of restrictions I can’t even begin
to address here. Contact the West Virginia Film Office.
