    Claire of the Moon was an interesting film about lesbian lovers. It was directed by Nicole Conn and starred Trish Todd and Karen Trumbo. It had a Portland cast and crew and Michael Harrison did a beautiful musical soundtrack. It became a cult classic and should be included here as an Oregon film.

    Thank you, Sam! I would love to know more about Claire of the Moon. Anybody out there who has seen it? Please feel free to submit a review/description.

    Hi, Anne.
    I just discovered your website and few made in Oregon movies came to mind. Parts of “The Grand Tour” was filmed in, and around Oakland, OR. It’s about a meteor that destroys a small town and it has time travelers. I watched part of “Fire in the Sky” being filmed in Douglas County, including Oakland, OR. “Short Circuit” was partly shot in Astoria. I also watched parts of the movie “Dead by Sunset” filmed in Portland. I also interviewed two of the young cast members (brothers).
