Empire Visual Effects to help boost New York location filming industry
New post-production company Empire Visual Effects is to be opened in Buffalo in Western New York in a move that could boost the state’s location filming industry. A 35% tax credit is available for projects that complete post-production work in upstate New York.
“The establishment of Empire Visual Effects is evidence of the great potential of transforming upstate and Western New York into a major film, animation and post-production destination for the industry,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The 35% post-production tax credit available in upstate New York is higher than the figure available in and around New York City in order to specifically incentivise post-production elsewhere in the state.
In the last few months The Amazing Spider-Man 2 became the biggest feature production to film entirely on location in New York.
