FILM COMMISSIONS FOR PRE-PRODUCTION PLANNING
Film commissions refer to quasi-governmental, non-profit organizations whose purpose is to attract motion media production crews to film on location in their locale
Film commissions offer support so that productions can accomplish their work smoothly.
Traditionally, film commissions have used tax incentives in order to draw TV, video and new media production.
Film commissions actively promote their locations throughout the world using tax credits as a key enticement for helping the decision process, as well as other types of incentives including scenery, location crew and permit ease, shooting for the lowest movie budgets and the highest quality production value.
