Follow up to the article in yesterday’s D&C regarding the NYS Film Incentive Program. href=”http://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/news/local/2013/10/12/red-carpet-treatment-ny-doles-out-millions-to-lure-film-tv-shoots/2972953/” title=”NY film Incentive”>.
This incentive program is a very useful tool, in our efforts to attract Film Production to Upstate NY. The Rochester/Finger Lakes region has the infrastructure and support services that producers look for when searching for locations needed for their productions.
An organized and efficient Film Commission to guide the filmmakers, highly qualified and experienced crew, access to equipment and accommodations, an amazing sound stage (Young Lion Studios), film friendly County, City, and Town officials…..locations, locations, locations!
A production that chooses to film in our region will find all of the pieces that they need to assemble and complete their film. Add to that the increase in the incentive program that is available soon to productions and there is no reason to go anywhere else.
From Pre-Production, through Production and even Post Production, they will find it all in the Rochester/Finger Lakes region.
