AUSTIN, TEXAS (BNO NEWS) – Governor Rick Perry credited the Texas Film Incentive Program with creating nearly 900 jobs and more than $5 million in capital investment to the state, the Governor’s Office announced Friday.
The Texas Film Incentive Program invested $352,800 in the production of the HBO biopic Temple Grandin, beating film sites in Arizona and New Mexico.
“This production is a great example of the Texas Film Incentive Program at work, creating jobs for hundreds of Texans, attracting millions of dollars in capital investment to our state economy, and generating a significant return on our initial investment,” Perry said.
For more than 35 years, the Film Commission has supported the media industries in Texas as well as boosting the Lone Star state’s economy.
