When HB 2156 passed the state House last year and enabled movie production companies to get up to $25 million for filming activities in Arizona, it caught the attention of many filmmakers.
Among them were Chris and Carissa Dalton, who grew up in Scottsdale and co-own the production company Huck & Dorothy.
After growing up here, the couple headed for Tinseltown with the big dream of writing, directing, producing and starring in a major production. However, they were surrounded by a staggering cast of creative minds looking to do the same.
Then, around 2020, Dalton began to notice that most of his and his wife’s work had been coming from their native state. So, they decided to pack their bags and return home.
