Pittsburg’s Certified Film Friendly status helped attract “Unwanted” filmand others

By CORY SMITH news@campcountynow.com

Pittsburg is known for many things: peaches, hotlinks, Pilgrim’s Pride and others. But it could soon be known for something else…a hotbed for the film industry. The most recent film to be shot in Pittsburg is “Unwanted” a horror film that was shot at the historic Holman House on Texas Street.

The Film Friendly Texas program provides ongoing training and guidance to help statewide communities effectively accommodate on-location filming and market their communities as filming destinations.

I don’t take in consideration anything except how are we going to get ready for district play. That’s what I did in creating this schedule. A loss at a time like that by a good football team can tell you a lot and do a lot of good for your team,” Coach Baca said.
