being finalized at California Film Commission
The new film incentive bill which was passed last fall will mean 20 to 25% savings for production companies shooting in California. Those productions that get money from the program will have it based on economic activity and jobs impact.

A 5% uplift is offered to productions that qualify and will film outside the Los Angeles Zone, in places such as Monterey County.
