Okotoks town council was presented with a 'Lessons Learned' report at their latest meeting.
The report refers to recent film projects hosted in town, including HBO's The Last of Us and the Telus Optik series In the Jumpseat with Jacqueline.
It highlights a handful of positive outcomes from hosting the recent production as well as some opportunities that could be taken should the town host similar productions in the future.
Among the positive outcomes are donations of $7,500 and $2,500 to the Okotoks Family Resource Centre and Good Shepherd School, respectively, from Bear & Pear Productions.
The town also collected over $18,000 in fees from the production, as well as over $20,000 from "cost-recovery for personnel and services."
Local businesses also received support from those involved in the production, with a representative having provided the town with a list of 28 storefront businesses that saw patronage from them during their time in Okotoks.
Among the opportunities outlined in the report are a review of the fee structure, the possible creation of a webpage to update residents on productions in town, and improving communications to neighboring residents and businesses before production crews are shooting.
