$3 million boost to local economy from US TV series
Clarrie Hall Dam to be used as a setting for series about a family summer camp

Filming of a new US TV series at Clarrie Hall Dam will provide a much-needed stimulus to the local economy, says Mayor of Tweed, Councillor Barry Longland.

The $22 million TV series consists of 10 one-hour episodes for US network NBC, to be shot at recreational area Crams Farm from March to July this year and is scheduled for summer viewing in the United States.

The series, titled Camp, centres on a family summer camp, with Crams Farm mimicking a typical setting of a US camp, featuring a beautiful lake and stands of pines.

Australian company, Matchbox Pictures, has already started set construction at Crams Farm on the banks of Clarrie Hall Dam, 34 kilometres south-west of Murwillumbah. Additional filming locations may also include sites in Murwillumbah and Tyalgum.

Matchbox Pictures were the producers of The Slap, My Place, The Straits and Lou (shot in Murwillumbah).

"The benefit for the Tweed here is direct, with the crew taking a six-month lease on the empty Murwillumbah Bowls Club as their base for a crew of 70, plus actors and extras," Councillor Longland said.

"As they're using Murwillumbah as their base - with headquarters at the Murwillumbah Bowls Club - that's a lot of motel beds, meals and fuel that will be provided by local motels, hotels, cafes, restaurants, petrol stations, fresh food businesses and supermarkets.

"On top of that, there will be a number of locals employed in the building of the set, plus a range of building supplies sourced locally which will be needed to build cabins and other structures at the site. In addition, I understand a number of local people will also be employed as extras and on the production crew.

"Tweed Shire Council is happy to support this production in terms of assisting with satisfying regulatory requirements, as this is an initiative which will strengthen the local economy to the tune of $3 million and keep locals working.

"While it won't put the Tweed on the map in the United States as a destination, it is another reminder of the potential of the Tweed as a wonderful film location, following on from films such as Muriel's Wedding, Mental and Lou.

Crams Farm will be closed to the general public during the week over the filming period, however access to some recreational areas will be maintained on weekends.

"While there will be some minor disruption to recreational activities, the benefit to the Tweed will outweigh this temporary inconvenience," Councillor Longland said.
