(Dubois, Wyo.) - A film crew from a national Italian TV channel dedicated to nature, biology and ecology arrived n Dubois Friday morning, for 2 days of filming in Wind River Country hosted by the Wind River Visitors Council. The film producer and crew will be filming a TV documentary for the RAI 3 national television channel that will appear this fall on Geo & Geo, a weekly program with approximately 1 million viewers. The broadcast value of this documentary on Italian television is over $770,000.
The film crew visited the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center to spend the day with Suzan Moulton, Director of the Sheep Center, to film our unique Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep and other wildlife. On Saturday, the crew will film the adventure sport of snowmobiling on Togwotee Pass with Triangle C Ranch guide Jim Moulton. The film crew will stay 2 nights at Triangle C Ranch to experience and document the western lifestyle. The tour arrangements were made by Central Booking in Dubois.
“We are very pleased to host this Italian film crew in Fremont County, and look forward to seeing their TV documentary in the fall,” said Paula McCormick, marketing director for the Wind River Visitors Council. “The international visitor is very important to our tourism businesses, as they often travel off-season, stay longer and spend more on their vacations. We think a vacation in Wind River Country gives them an authentic western experience they will never forget,” she said.
Additionally, the group of four will be filming in Jackson. The Wind River Visitors Council is co-hosting the film crew with The Wyoming Office of Tourism and Rocky Mountain International.
