Texas Film Incentive Program sign now

We, the undersigned, are Texas residents economically impacted by film production, performing arts, and entertainment media in the state of Texas.

We represent actors, filmmakers, designers, electricians, carpenters, wardrobe supervisors, props masters, production assistants, camera operators, sound designers, photographers, writers, animal handlers, editors, talent agents, casting directors, location scouts, accountants, make-up artists, painters, animators, translators, drivers, equipment rental companies, hotel and restaurant personnel -- just to name a few of the hundreds of professional distinctions among our numbers.

We whole-heartedly support Governor Perrys proposed $30 million increase for Trusteed Programs in the Governors Office to finance a new Film Incentives Program to promote film production and to increase funding for tourism in Texas. We believe this is a much-needed shot in the arm to restore vibrancy to the Texas film industry, which in recent years has lost vital production dollars and employment to Canada, and to neighboring states that have been more aggressive in their pursuit of film industry spending.

We missed an opportunity in the previous legislative session to implement these incentives, and it has hurt our industry. Lets not make the same mistake again.

We strongly urge the 2005 Texas Legislature to pass a budget that includes the proposed $30 million increase in funding for a new Film Incentives Program.

Thank you for your attention.
