Utah business board approves film incentives.
The MPIP offers film companies up to 25 percent of the dollars left in the state in the form of a post-performance tax credit or cash rebate.
"The quantity and quality of these projects directly correlate to the clarity and stability of the Utah Motion Picture Incentive Program, in addition to the support of the Utah Legislature and Governor Gary Herbert," says Marshall Moore, director of the Utah Film Commission. "The projects, including in-state and out-of-state companies, demonstrate the depth of film talent in the state."
Since the MPIP was created in 2004, 95 film projects have received funding, creating more than 5,000 production jobs and 2,000 production days. The projects are responsible for leaving nearly $178 million in the state.
Recent films include John Carter, all three High School Musical movies and the Oscar-nominated 127 Hours.
The film projects receiving an incentive from the MPIP include:
* Back Door to Heaven, Back Door to Heaven, LLC
* Breaking Pointe, BBC Worldwide Reality Productions, LLC

* K-9 Christmas, Dewi LLC
* Nightlight, Local Creative, LLC
