Sarah Mason

Film Tourism Consultant

Seeing the excitement on a person's face when they experience the real-life filming locations of their favorite movies or TV shows is transformative. My great passion is to bring those magical moments to travelers and help communities all over the world boost travel to their destinations by leveraging the power of film tourism.

 

Over the course of my 20 year career, I have built promotional campaigns for top brands like Canon, Sony, Apple, Adobe, HP, Microsoft, and Samsung.  I have produced Red Carpet premieres, film festivals, award shows, trade shows and conventions, corporate events, experiential VR and AR installations. I am a featured panelist at conventions and a guest lecturer at The American Film Institute (AFI) and Boston University, speaking on the impact of film tourism and digital storytelling.

A Certified Travel specialist, part of the Travel Leaders Network, I work with communities around the world helping attract productions to their destinations and promoting filming locations of popular movies and television series. I also consult with production companies as a Tax Incentive Scout, helping vet the best incentive programs for their productions that also fit their location needs.

 

My film tourism projects include the Louisiana Film Trail for the state of Louisiana, Mapping Harry Potter UK for VisitBritain,The Walking Dead walking tours for the city of Senoia, Georgia and Salem Haunted Happenings Hocus Pocus campaign and It's Alive! for the city of Salem, Massachusetts and the Peabody Essex Museum.

I hold a B.S. in Broadcasting and Film Production from Boston University. In 2017 I became a Certified Travel Specialist and a member of Travel Quest and Travel Leaders Network.
