When chairman, producer and director of Ten10 Entertainment and Desert Wind Films Joshua Mills worked in California, he noticed that his home state was not being exposed to the Hollywood royalty treatment.
The Fort Worth native decided to move both companies from the film capital of the world (Los Angeles) to Texas to show what the Lone Star State has to offer. After nine years of being a Texas company working in Los Angeles, he is ready to showcase both companies here in San Antonio.
“My goal was to always bring [Ten10 Entertainment and Desert Wind Films] back to Texas. I wanted to bring more infrastructure into the state of Texas and I really wanted to bring filmmaking back here,” stated Mills to La Prensa. “At first, my company said ‘sure’ and ‘whatever, we will try to get here when we do that.’ The day finally came when we figured that we need to get out of LA because Texas has a greater economy and favorable market.”
As the new face of Texas entertainment, the company is carrying an important film and television event and they would like to invite you to their exclusive screening party at Hotel Emma on Thursday, Oct. 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. The event welcomes those interested in being cast in a film, playing a role behind the scenes or to learn more about location and investment opportunities.
This is also an event to highlight what the company has to offer by concluding the event with a screening of “My Brother’s Keeper.” The film is set in the 1950s and it is a faith based feature film with a strong message about forgiveness that was released in Theatres in 2015.
“The more awareness we give out, the more independent producers are going to talk and see a great place to shoot. This will be a great opportunity for investors and producers to save money and see that the state is film friendly,” explained Mills. “The locations are also great to film wide open space, the Wild West, and canyon country to the winery. We have got a lot to offer to where it can be a one-stop shop.”
