Scouts from major film companies spent a few days in Sheridan County this week, but they weren't looking for talent—they were looking for sets.

Michell Howard of the Wyoming Film Office said this is the first step toward fame for small communities.

With cameras and notepads in hand, the group from Los Angeles toured Eaton Ranch, Kendrick Mansion, local polo facilities, and our mountain passes. Kim Crabb, one of the temporarily imported location managers, said she came for one reason alone.

A few years ago, Wyoming legislators instituted a rebate for film companies who shoot in Wyoming. A film and crew who spends more than $200,000 during their stay is eligible. In turn, Wyoming's tourism industry hopefully increases.
