TXMPA

Please, please, please sign up as a member of the Texas Motion Picture Alliance.

The Texas Motion Picture Alliance (TXMPA) seeks economic and creative incentives for producers of film, video, interactive and digital media production by serving as a proactive advocate of the Texas motion picture industry.

In a nutshell, these guys are the force to getting film incentives passed in Texas. We're losing so much business to New Mexico and Louisiana and other states who have these amazing incentive programs in place. And in turn we're losing jobs for hundreds and hundreds of people in the film, animation and gaming industry. It sucks when your friends who have survived on all of the great productions in town for so many years have to move because the work is drying up. And what's the worst thing ever is when you're in development on a project that you'd love to shoot in your own hometown, but you can't because financially it doesn't make sense.
