The Mid Hudson Valley has become a destination for television and film production, in part, due to its diversity of naturally beautiful locales.

For six months, the Hudson Valley Film Commission tried to find something different.

“We were looking for post-apocalyptic locations,” commission Director Laurent Rejto said of working on a project known by the codename “Hondo.”

Last week, the fruits of that labor paid off when “Hondo” − now widely known to be the Amazon television adaptation of the video game series “Fallout” − filmed scenes at two Ulster County locations, Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale and a quarry at the recently opened Sojourner Truth State Park in Kingston.

Though the highly secretive project is not expected to return to the region, it marks the latest high-profile television series to film locally in a year in which the film commission said industry spending in the region over the first six month set a record.
