Eugene stands in for NYC.

Byline: Lewis Taylor The Register-Guard

"The Sisters" may be set in New York's Upper East Side and Charleston, S.C., but the shooting locations are in Lane County.

Produced by local businesswoman Carolyn Chambers, the film was shot at the Chambers Media Center in Eugene in spring 2004.

The $5.5 million drama also features scenes shot at Villard Hall at the University of Oregon, Sacred Heart Medical Center and a stretch of downtown Eugene.

The film was marred by a stage employees strike that complicated the final days of shooting. Replacement workers were brought in after 65 crew members walked out.

Chambers has said she hopes to help put Eugene on the map as a viable shooting and production location. She is in negotiations on other projects that could end up shooting in Oregon.
