It's the attractive film tax credit incentives that have enticed studios and major producers
to come to New England and some have made multiple trips. Incentives! Transferable and
refundable tax credits are responsible for bringing them here. What they find when they get
here is what is bringing them back.
It's gratifying to see the number of new film and television productions that are in production
or lined up to begin production in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Maine.
New Industry related businesses are popping up everywhere. Clearly the region has rolled
up its sleeves to compete for the business and become an important production Mecca in this country.
And now it is fact: this is where Hollywood is spending its money almost 4 billion of it and it this
looks like our best year ever!
Tax credits aside, a director is able to add uniquely distinctive characters to his cast: vibrant and rich
neighborhoods, historic architecture, a sense of mysterious and exquisite coastlines and lake regions, fishing
villages, boats, lobster traps, farms, premiere academic institutions, covered bridges, modern bridges, ski slopes,
beautiful flowers and trees, and perennial fall foliage. And lets not forget perhaps the most important production enhancement of all, those authentic New England accents!
Producers will find a professional production community in New England; a solid crew base, talented and well trained actors, award winning casting agents, excellent production companies and post production facilities,
substantial highly developed new studios and sound stages, superior camera equipment rental groups, and innovative film offices.
Find out what all the excitement is about. Experience the exhilaration of shooting in New England.
Take advantage of our tax credit that will allow you to do more for less. Studios, major producers, production
companies and indies who have shot here are returning for their second, third and fourth productions. Thats
prrof it pays to bring productions to New England!
