Here's a fun article from Texas Monthly on making movies in Texas that I just stumbled across. A "panel of experts" (WTF that means, I'm not sure) decides the Top Ten Movies ever Made in Texas. I'm not big on "top 10" lists about pop culture, but the article is interesting more for the details you learn about the particular films, and of course, the predispositions about the people naming them, which may serve some of you aspiring filmmakers well, especially those in our Texas Film Scene community.
While the article is from June 2011, the content is evergreen, and I think you'll get a kick out of it. Enjoy!
