04 May Benefit of Full Service Television Production Goes Beyond Financial Incentives
It’s no secret that television production in the Sunshine State has taken a hit due in part to political wrangling over tax credits. It’s a story that has been showing up in a number of headlines since 2013. One of the more recent ones showed up in a March 2016 edition of the Herald Tribune. But despite the story being retold for years, people seem to forget that monster size tax credits and blockbusters aren’t the only central figures in the state’s television production tale.
There are small businesses that utilize the medium as well. People like plumbers, independently owned hotels and aspiring sitcom writers use the state’s cache of private, television production services too. Oftentimes their mission is to create sponsored show content, infomercials or branded webcasts to keep their customers engaged year round. And television production companies are more than willing to aid small or mid-size companies in their efforts as well.
Remember, not all television production budgets need to be bloated and forever hungry for more. Today’s technologies help bring the cost of television production down to manageable levels, especially when full service companies are part of the picture. Why are full service companies frequently the keystone of any filming project in Florida? Modestly put, they eliminate the need for hiring additional service providers. For example, let’s say a museum wants to promote an upcoming exhibit.
Name a better way to do that than create a televised show featuring the history surrounding each group of artifacts. It’s hard to come up with something more effective right? The televised show would appeal to almost all of the viewers’ senses. Plus, it could include behind-the-scenes moments showing what it takes to bring exhibits to the area. That portion of the show, in and of itself, would likely appeal to potential investors too. So the museum might even end up with donations on top of admission sales.
