When folks consider Dallas for creative projects, they often find that North Texas has more than just friendly faces to help make their project a success. The landscape and local amenities continue to fuel the creative culture that makes Dallas one of a kind.
Dallas is ranked the 5th most diverse city in America per a study by WalletHub. Five key dimensions were considered: socioeconomic diversity, cultural diversity, economic diversity, household diversity and religious diversity. Additionally, they considered industry diversity, income, age, religious affiliation, education, language, worker class, and marital status. Dallas has one of the largest gay populations in the U.S. and the biggest in Texas.
QUALIFIED CREW BASE IN A RIGHT-TO-WORK STATE
Texas is a right-to-work state and has highly skilled resident film and media professionals, both union and non-union, ready to work in every area of production. It is not unusual for our area to have two to three television series and multiple independent films shooting simultaneously using a majority local crew. The film commission has an online creative directory available 24/7 at www.dallascreates.org.
