Discovery Channel films in Jedediah Smith State Park

The new Film Commission for Del Norte County, filmDELNORTE, is off to a great start. This past August, the Discovery Channel was the first to officially film in the region since R.R.E.E.L.,Inc. has taken Del Norte County under its jurisdiction. They filmed in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. “It was a great spot—perfect for what we were after! I don’t think the trees have ever been filmed the way we shot them,” stated the English-based producer of the shoot.
