Trifecta’s Hollywood-Level Work Standard Has Huntington on the Edge of Becoming a Boutique Film-making Community
“If we bring film and commercial projects to Huntington, every restaurant wins,” explained Trifecta president Joe Murphy. “The entire economy gets a boost, whether it’s a three day shoot or a three month shoot. It’s not just Huntington, it’s happening everywhere, Technology has leveled the playing field.”
Describing themselves as “opportunists” in a perfect storm of optimum, Murphy described the city as “on fire” ready to become a boon town again.
Founded in 2007 by Joe Murphy and Jack Reynolds, the company received a break when Darrel Fetty and the History Channel asked them to produce a documentary. “America’s Greatest Feud: The History of the Hatfields & McCoys,” which offers the Insight of historians, scholars and descendants, as well as dramatic reenactments shot at Heritage Farm, near Huntington.
In addition, Huntington has come together and worked on other “rush” film projects, such as a late 40’s commercial for the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
