State May Create Incentives for Film Producers

Cheyenne, WY – Next time a major movie company is looking for a place to film Wyoming wants to be in consideration. A committee of the state House passed a bill to offer incentives for companies that would shoot in Wyoming and spend at least 500 thousand dollars here. Representative Rosie Berger brought this bill to the legislature. She says they have set up a rigorous review process to make sure they're working with legitimate companies. Berger says they will also review film proposals to make sure they spend enough in state, and portray Wyoming or at least mention where the film was shot in the credits.
