There are more major film productions this year in Louisiana than anywhere else in the country. Why? This state offers excellent tax refunds to film investors. A THIRTY PERCENT tax incentive is given to those who film in Louisiana. The next Batman film will be shot here next summer. To put it in perspective, if the budget is $200 million, the state will give $60 million in tax credit back. Imagine, a state offering tax breaks to encourage business. Would New Jersey do that?
So with the rest of the country floundering in economic chaos, LA has a steady industry keeping us employed. Oh I forgot, you are all so proud of "Jersey Shore" Wait, aren't they filming that someplace else this season?
