Will anyone be considering a Utah shoot now that the incentive is that much sweeter?
Utah aims to lift domestic and international profile with new filming incentive
Governor Gary R Herbert has officially signed Utah’s new filming incentive scheme into law, meaning the state now officially offers a 25% tax incentive. Authorities are now keen to boost Utah’s profile both domestically and overseas.
Marshall Moore, Director of the Utah Film Commission, said: “The higher rebate will now make us more attractive to the studios and networks and more competitive with other states and countries.”

Governor Herbert said: “Our vision for the State of Utah is to be recognized as a premiere global business destination. The expanded motion picture incentive will enable us to position Utah and its talented motion picture and digital media work force to compete on a global basis for the film and digital media industries. These are important industries to our economy’s future.”
Utah’s incentive scheme has been running since 2004, during which time it has fed nearly USD180 million into the state economy. High-profile projects have included Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours and Andrew Stanton’s upcoming live-action directorial debut John Carter of Mars, while Doctor Who chose the state for its first ever US location shoot in November 2010.
