Best Unsung Film Scene Force: Gary Bond

Best Unsung Film Scene Force: Gary Bond

Need a permit to shoot near the Capitol? Want stats on Austin film production? Don't phone a hipster; call the tall guy. Since 1985, a soft-spoken, smart, and funny pro named Gary Bond has been Austin film's savior. In July he quietly retired as the head of the Austin Film Commission and has left some big shoes to fill. The former radio newsman exits with more knowledge of the Austin film scene than just about anybody. All that, and he's a genuine nice guy who loves to eat (and cook) pie. He'll be missed.
