Washington State to Fund Movies

Washington State is joining the list of states that are doing what they can to lure filmmakers to its verdant shores. This comes from IMDb via Studio Briefing. They are giving up to $1 million to productions in the state, as long as that number does not exceed 20% of the total budget of the film. In other words, if your making a film in Washington, they'll help, but they won't pay the whole thing for you. This comes after several films that were set in Seattle were actually filmed in Vancouver.

While the move may bring movie dollars to Washington, it may not be a successful as they think. Vancouver draws work not just from Seattle, but from Los Angeles too, as it has a good infrastructure for film work, but the costs are way lower. --Terrence Ryan
