Lights, camera, action! Producers for feature films, reality shows, commercials, and other film projects are flocking to Nevada in droves, despite the sluggish economy.
One reason that Nevada continues to draw film crews from around the world is that the locations are nearly impossible to economically replicate.
“It’s hard to recreate the Las Vegas Strip in front of a green screen,” says Dannette Tull of the Nevada Film Office. “And the gaming – we’re obviously known for that. And we have unique locations, which is what makes Nevada so special.”
The Nevada Film Office’s slogan is “Your Imagination, Our Locations.” Nevada continues to be an industry leader in attracting film projects – despite the failure of a recent tax incentive bill to get out of the state legislature.
Film projects in Nevada have accounted for more than $100 million in revenue for the past nine years in a row.
