The Movies Go To Boston

Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken, Meg Ryan and Cameron Diaz are just a few of the stars spotted in Boston recently. Thanks to new tax credits, filmmakers are eying Massachusetts as a new movie backdrop. Is this going to last, or is it just 15 minutes of fame?

We take a stroll down movie memory lane, hear from independent filmmakers looking for a big break and go behind the scenes of a major motion picture being filmed in Boston.

Web Extra: Take our technical director, Tim Skoog, and toss in an old Handycam, the set of a Massachusetts indie film and a little iMovie. Presto! Our very own Tim Skoog-erbergh. He went to New Bedford to visit the set of "The Aristocrat" and brought back his own short film.
