Tennessee’s nickname lives up to its billing, as its crews and entertainment professionals are eager to assist in the filming process.
The Volunteer State’s three main geographic regions are not only multi-faceted, but give access to an astonishing eight bordering states.
Tennessee also offers two major initiatives for filming, and when parlayed, a production can recover on over 30% of spending in the state.
Hotel occupancy tax is waved after one full month, and no state filming fees are required.
Recently, Tennessee has decreased the minimum budget to qualify for tax credits from $1 million to $200,000. The goal is to attract more filmmakers and increase the state’s popularity in the industry over time.
