GOED's Val Hale is speaking at a #UtahManufacturersAssociation event next week, and in prepping for it, we ran across this map. It shows that Utah ranks #14 in terms of manufacturing as a percentage of Gross State Product. Utah's 14.9 percent is comfortably above the US average of 12 percent.

Ext: High noon in Kanab. The 5th annual #LittleHollywoodShootout kicks off at the historic Parry Lodge in Kanab, Utah March 11, 2015. The “shootout” is a quick-turnaround film challenge requiring filmmakers to produce a short film with Kane County locations as the backdrop.

At high noon, film production requirements such as locations and a theme will be revealed to participants. Competitors will then have 51.5 hours to write, direct, edit, and complete a five-minute film. Film submissions are due at 2:30 pm on Friday, March 13, and the shootout films will be premiered at a community screening and awards ceremony on Saturday, March 14, at the Crescent Moon Theater.
