We strive to be a comprehensive resource for all things related to production within Sarasota County. That's why we've created the My Clipboard functionality where you can create your personal clipboard of production contacts based precisely on your needs and interests. That's also why we are more than happy to answer any questions, gather location information and assist with everything from permitting to location images to community relations. That's also why we want your feedback. Your feedback is essential in our continuous improvement process so please let us know how we can make your production process smoother. If you need immediate assistance, feel free to contact us by phone at (941) 309-1200 or email at info@filmsarasota.com
