Gov. Brown OKs tripling state film tax-credit funding to $330 million

Finally, a light at the end of a very dark tunnel here in California! #AB1839 passed it's final hurdle today. It took a little haircut from $400M to $330M per year for 5 years but the entire structure of the film incentive, not just the dollar amount, needed an overhaul which it received quite effectively. Starting next summer, CA will be able to compete for tent-pole feature films and episodic television shows once again, bringing our industry (and our people) back home to CA! Well doen, Jerry Brown & the the bipartisan team of legislators behind AB1839! #FilmItCA

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/onlocation/la-et-ct-film-tax-credit-deal-20140827-story.html

California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed off on a deal that would more than triple funding for California's film and TV tax-credit program.

Thanks to everyone who sponsored and coordinated today's FilmWorks rally at ISS. AB 1839 needs to pass in order to restore our CA entertainment industry, lest it fall victim to the non-actions that caused CA's loss of the aerospace industry, the manufacturing industries and other business sectors in years and decades past. This is not an entertainment industry issue, it's not even a Southern California issue - THIS IS A CALIFORNIA ISSUE! The economics that are lost when production leaves town are massive and they emanate throughout the state. We have to stop the bleeding now! Please contact your state representatives TODAY to express your support for AB 1839 - even if you've never been a part of this formerly indigenous industry of ours!

If you just don't understand the economic implications and simply view this as a Hollywood hand-out, please feel free to contact us so that we can explain... it's no handout, we have to invest money in order to make money - it's solid economics which is uniquely supported by both sides of the isle.

Location Manager JJ Hook: Challenges of filming action cinema | The Location Guide

Here's a nice write-up on JJ Hook, whom we at Acumen Studios consider to be a true friend and ally. Keep up the great projects, JJ... hopefully our paths will cross again soon - maybe even in CA

“My first industry job was fetching soup and blankets for people on a beach in Cornwall,” Hook says, recalling his work on Swept from the Sea, which featured Rachel Weisz shortly before her star-making turn in The Mummy: “I was on the set for five days and then Bill Darby offered me a job as Assista...
