UFC Production Manager, Derek Mellus worked closely with Andrea to develop a film travel itinerary that included Sundance Mountain Resort, Bonneville Salt Flats, Moab, Arches National Park, Goblin Valley State Park and Lake Powell. When asked about his experience, Derek said "I was really impressed by not only the research she had done on each film, but her attitude. It's apparent Andrea really loves what she does and is as a true fan of film."

THANKSGIVING POINT

Tucked within the sprawling grounds of Thanksgiving Point and located just beyond the I-15 Lehi exit, the Ashton Gardens are best described as a botanical oasis within the desert Utah landscape. With nearly fifty-five acres to explore and among a whopping fifteen themed gardens - park attractions range from cascading fountains, koi ponds, and the largest manmade waterfall in the world. The park is widely accessible, offering paved and guided paths which can be explored on foot or by rentable golf carts, making for a perfect outing for the whole family.

With the tulips in bloom during the Spring and stunning colors all season long, Thanksgiving Point is a perfect location for Summer photography and filming. For questions and inquiries, please contact the Utah Film Commission at 801.538.8740 or visit our Locations Directory for more information.
