Coming this week: Stuart Sailfish Club, Film & Television Production, and the Feb 25th Martin County Tourism Development Council meeting

Guests this Friday, February 27, will include Ed Killer and Gary Scott.

Ed Killer, a native of the Treasure Coast, contributed to the Stuart News as a freelance sports and outdoors writer beginning in 1994 before being hired full time as the Scripps Outdoors Writer in 2005. His coverage includes daily fishing reports, weekly features, a weekly column and event coverage with fishing, boating, hunting and other outdoors activities. This week on Talkin' Tourism Ed will discuss the history of the Stuart Sailfish Club and its contributions as the earliest “Tourism Promotion” organizers in Martin County.

Gary Scott is head of production at New Vision Productions, Inc. He was born in Manhattan, New York, went to high school in Hollywood, Florida, and attended college in New York City. His major wasn't film production, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the list of movies and TV shows he has worked on: Mr. Nanny (shot in South Florida) starring Hulk Hogan; A Price Above Rubies (Boaz Yakim), Bullets Over Broadway (Woody Allen), Gloria (Sidney Lumet), Men In Black (Barry Sonnenfeld), Sleepers (Barry Levenson), The Mirror Has Two Faces (Barbara Streisand), Law and Order, Oz, and New York Undercover.

Gary relocated to the Treasure Coast in 2002. His first feature, Mr. No Shot (2007), was filmed completely on location here on the Treasure Coast.

Gary will share his insights into the “niche” tourism market of Film, Television and Production.

Talkin' Tourism host Gary Guertin and co-host Robin Hicks-Connors will also wrap up results of the Martin County Tourism Development Council workshop, which is scheduled on Thursday, February 25 at 2:30 p.m. in the Morgade Library.

Tune in to WPSL 1590 AM at 10 a.m. on Friday to hear the show LIVE!!
