Texas Film, Video Game Industries in the Spotlight
28 Aug 2023
Creative professionals making feature films and video games in Texas aren’t just competing with projects in the media meccas of Los Angeles and New York City. They’re vying with productions made in states with generous incentives and tax credits for film and games. Georgia has dominated in incentivizing film production; New Mexico offers sizeable tax credits; and Oklahoma’s cash rebates make it a serious contender.
Even states that offer generous subsidies have seen productions jump to another state for a more lucrative deal. Also, state film incentives have drawn criticism with some questioning if the money could be better allotted to education, health care, infrastructure or taxpayer relief.
