Ohio’s Film Industry Heats Up

Professionals looking to pursue a career in the film industry may be able to find future work in Ohio after state officials expanded an entertainment tax incentive, a move that industry leaders said will open up more jobs for people with a variety of skills on their resumes.

Raising the cap on the tax incentive acknowledges the success of Ohio’s program and lets the national and international film industry know that Ohio is open for business. I want to sincerely thank Governor John Kasich for signing this important legislation, and Ohio Sen. Tom Patton and Ohio Rep. Mike Dovilla for sponsoring the legislation that made this possible, Ivan Schwarz, executive director of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, noted.The expansion came in the wake of a newly released study by Cleveland State University that found the motion picture industry tax incentive had created approximately 1,143 full-time jobs during the past 3 years. People interested in working in the entertainment industry may want to take an online assessment test to determine if they are suited for the career field.According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities for film and video editors and camera operators are expected to be best for those with a 4-year postsecondary degree.
