Mel Gibson wants to run a waterfall
My wife got this message through the state film office. I can think of a few waterfalls in Washington and Oregon that fit the description, but don't know of any in Colorado/Utah/New Mexico. Can anyone help Mel out?
CALL FOR WATERFALLS IN WESTERN UNITED STATES
Dear Film Office,
Seraphim Falls is a motion picture project set to begin filming in New Mexico next month. Produced by Mel Gibson's Icon Productions, the film stars Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan. Filming is currently taking place in Santa Fe, Taos, and Lordsburg.
We need to locate a river waterfall that we can use for this film. We are planning shoot the 'Falls" mid December, 2005. The script requires a man to be swept down the waterfall and survive.
The waterfall that we are looking for has the following specifications:
1) a 40-60 foot plunge
2) a pool at the bottom
3) pine trees at the top
4) good volume
5) snowy, but not frozen in December.
The waterfall must have good access from the road, and be within an hour of a city where a cast and crew of 100 can be housed.
Thank you for helping us find this very special location. Please email photos, call with suggestions, and forward this email. We look forward to hearing from you.
