    Some big named stars in this. Could be a very good trend in Ohio.

    If the new governor in Michigan kills the tax credit, Ohio could reap tremendous benefits from this.

    Ohio Film Office Supporters Worry For Its Future
    By Associated Press
    Published: March 13, 2011

    Kasich has killed the majority of the tax incentive and over 70% of the budget for the Ohio Film Office as a whole. A special exception was made for THE AVENGERS in Cleveland, which is mostly being shot in Brooklyn at a sound stage there but with a few short weeks up north.

    Also, Kasich may be taking the credit for getting a couple of films here, but I guarantee these negotiations didn’t start the day he took office.

    I’m not a supporter of Kasich, or his wacky economic policies, but I have always had a problem with tax incentives. Communities and states often give up much more than they get, just to have something to “hang” on the wall. Large tax incentives and other corporate welfare programs are generally the best way to win a race to the bottom, as far as economic health goes. Generally, once the corporation/entity in question has taken advantage of the incentive, they cut and run, generally laying off thousands of people in the process.

    Cincinnati is probably the closest thing we have to Pittsburgh, insofar as a variety of “looks” within a few miles radius. Columbus can’t stand in for anything on the eastern seaboard, as we have no “ocean”. Cleveland benefits from being able to look as though New York Harbor is just a couple of streets over.

    Columbus could probably double for other heavily glaciated northern areas, like Minnesota or Wisconsin. ;)

    Bringing in big Hollywood dollars to be spent in out state can influx millions of dollars at the cost of a few hundred thousand dollars in incentive dollars. That’s pretty easy to say YES to that.

    The tax breaks mean money for restaurants, caterers, grip rentals, crew, make up artists, local actors, and the list goes on and on. All of them have to pay taxes…. it all balances out in the state’s favor in the end.
