One local man is about to release a film that was shot from coast to coast.
Jackson County native Josh Miller spent 30 days traveling the United States on a mission: seeking out whether products are still made in America. During filming, Miller only ate, wore and used products made in the United States.
"We're willing to die for our country, but are we willing to buy for it? That's something we need to think about," said Miller, who created the idea for "Made in the USA".
He said the more American products we buy, the more American jobs we support and create. Miller grew up outside of Ravenswood, where he said he drew inspiration for his film.
"The plant shutting down, that affected my family," Miller said. "One thing about this country, we fight for our family. For America as our family, we need to start fighting for it again."
And by fighting, Miller means buying.
"If you're gonna talk the talk, you gotta walk the walk," Miller said.
He added that most of the products he buys are American-made.
Miller raised around $13,000 for production costs. He plans to release the film before the end of the year.
