Trailer released for ‘The Lumber Baron’, a movie partially filmed in Chippewa Valley

Eau Claire (WQOW) – More than a year since camera crews set up shop in the Chippewa Valley, we’re getting our first look at the feature film, “The Lumber Baron”.

The film is written and produced by Karen Hurd from Fall Creek. It is her first full-length film.

There’s more than 150 people from all across the country involved in the filming.

As News 18 reported last summer, some of the scenes from the movie were shot at the Paul Bunyan Logging Camp Museum nestled in Carson Park.

You might see a familiar face too. Altoona Police Chief Jesse James has a small role as a police officer named ‘The Constable’.

Details about when it will be released, and where it will be played, have yet to be released.

Watch the trailer below!
