YAKIMA, Wash- In more local news, Yakima isn't the first thing that comes to most people's minds when they think of the movie business. But that isn't stopping one local filmmaker. He's directing a movie called 'Hannah and Jude', a story about childhood friends who reunite later in life. It will all be filmed in Yakima with a local cast and crew. It may be the first feature-length film ever made in Yakima.
"I've seen a lot of people open up and just say yeah, I'll help you out, whatever you need, just to make this happen, because people are excited about it. No one's been tarnished by the film industry here. So that's a good thing", says Nathan Merritt, Director of Hannah and Jude.
