Help Increase Filming Incentives in CO

From the Colorado Film and Video website…
HB 12-1286 goes to the House Finance Committee this week, Wednesday February 29th, 2012, and we need your help to see it through! HB 12-1286 will boost the current Colorado film incentives from 10% to 20%, as well as provide a state guarantee for a senior bank loan for production companies (the first of it's kind in the country). You can more details about HB 12-1286 here.
Follow this link to the Colorado Film and Video website for information on how (and who) to write to help make this happen. http://filmincolorado.com/votesmart.html
A large part of why we shot our last feature (Leading Ladies) in Illinois was the IL Film Office film incentive program.  Making Colorado’s film incentive program competitive will bring more film productions to the state, increase revenue for the state (in the form of everything purchased while the production is here… which often ads up to hundreds of thousands, even millions, of dollars), and create more work for Colorado filmmakers and crews!
