SUMMARY
Director Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska” filmed recently in the Billings area. The film follows a father and his estranged son on a road trip together from Billings to Nebraska in order to claim a million dollar Publisher’s Clearing House sweepstakes prize. Paramount Productions hired Montana crew and extras for the shoot and the production company took advantage of Montana’s Big Sky on the Big Screen Act. Many local services were used throughout the entire production, including construction supply companies, party rentals, nurseries, police and highway patrol. The production team was impressed by how welcoming and film-friendly the communities of Billings and Laurel were. Photo courtesy of the Billings Gazette.
