THE IMPORTANCE OF MEMBERSHIP

1. How do you get found for work? One job and you are in the profit zone.  
2. If you are in the union, how do you get found for non-union jobs? How do you get hired when the long term job is over and you have been out of the market for 7 months?
3. TAMMP is a tax deduction.
4. Your membership supports our film incentives. The TAMMP on line directory is a tool for showing the depth and strength of the film industry in Texas. Our 40 year history proves to legislators that there is a viable film industry in the state that has great economic impact.
5. TAMMP is now doing workshops and training sessions to further educate and improve our incoming crew.
6. TAMMP promotes venues and companies who support the film industry, as well as, crew.
 

The 2015 Legislative session is less than 6 months away.
The film industry has lost some of our champions. This could have a huge impact on the  the current film incentives program. Our bill’s Senate Sponsor, Bob Deuell is gone. The new governor has no knowledge for our film incentive program and his new lieutenant governor is a declared opponent of government incentives.  At this time it is crucial to band together, stay tuned and stay in touch.

TAMMP NEWS LETTER - MARCH 17, 2014

NEWS FROM THE STATE FILM COMMISSIONER
The TAMMP office has received several inquiries about paper work that free lancers fill out at the top of every job to prove they are TEXAS residents. Due to the lack of manpower, this paperwork must be filled out every time, much like a 1099 form.  The state cannot keep up with expired TX Driver's licenses and passport information, so the form is given out for almost every project that is shooting a commercial or series of commercials in TEXAS.

Of the applicants who apply and receive film incentive monies for Commercials:

  • 79% of the money is given to TEXAS based production companies.
  • 21% is given to out of state production companies who prove they hired a 70% Texas Crew base and shot 70% of the job in the state.

Texas based companies like American Airlines, SW Airlines, Air Tran and US Air are eligible to be used when applying for film incentive money. If you fly crew or talent in from anywhere on one of these airlines, that money counts toward your incentive rebate because these companies are TEXAS based.

The State Film Commission is doing a survey to find ALL the stages through out TEXAS. If you manage, own or operate a facility that can be used for filming, please get listed in the TAMMP on line directory.  This could help increase the amount of work coming in to the state.

The more crew and vendors we can list, the more viable TEXAS looks as a film destination. TAMMP is and always has been statewide.
