Filming in New Jersey

Governor to the state of New Jersey, Chris Christie has vetoed a proposed motion to install a new system of filming incentives within the state. In 2011 Christie similarly halted a USD420,000 tax credit made available for the first season of Jersey Shore, over concerns regarding the controversial content of the show.

Production activity has suffered as productions look elsewhere for a better incentive deal, particularly in the neighbouring state of New York.

No matter what the request, no matter what the problem, no matter what the timeframe, the New Jersey Film Commission always responded with unquestioning support and a direct plan of action.
