Film and Video in Colorado

Video and text by Juliette Mondot Colorado House Bill 1010 will give film/video projects a 10% state tax income credit that can be transferred or sold on pre approved projects for Colorado expenditures. It's not a 25% rebate check like New Mexico offers, but it's better than nothing. Last year Rep. Douglas Bruce shot down proposed film incentives saying he would not support Spielburg. The Spielburgs of Colorado assembled at this Film Rally to support the legislation this year and we are glad Bruce is gone, especially after he infamously kicked a newspaper photographer. The last major feature film shot in Colorado was Nowhereland with Eddie Murphy. Paramount spent over a million dollars in September of 2007 with two weeks of shooting. Colorado has great locations and crew.
