Event description

Description

Why aren't Westerns filmed in Arizona anymore? How do movie and & TV execs decide which locations to use? What is the economic impact for a city when a movie or TV show is filmed there? And most important, how can Tucson get in on the action? In this highly engaging workshop, participants will learn how states like Georgia—now the #1 location for film and television production in the United States—as well as New Mexico, Utah and Nevada are using tax incentives, and local investment to change the landscape of the industry. Participants will also look at the broader national picture of film tax credits and how location decisions are made as well as the actual economic impact a major motion picture can have on a local area. The workshop includes access to all materials and lessons at no cost. Workshop instruction by Dr. Chris Cannon of the Georgia Council for Economics Education.
