HB17 Film Incentive Fund

The Motion Picture Incentive Fund gives money to filmmakers in exchange for bringing their production to Utah. Here are some facts: The motion picture industry has spent over 1.2 BILLION dollars in Utah the last 12 years. Using the film incentive fund, Utah’s production increased from $5.3 million in summer of 2003 to $9.2 million in summer 2004. A modest investment produced a 74% increase in production. The incentive fund generates huge amounts of cash and high paying jobs. If we don't offer the money, the industry will go elsewhere and we'll lose out big time. Fully funding HB17 is a good economic move for the state. The information above was provided by the Utah Film Commission.

Well a childish dream is a deathless need
And a noble truth is a sacred creed
My pretty baby, she's lookin' around
She's wearin' a multi-thousand dollar gown

Tweedle-dee Dee is a lowdown, sorry old man
Tweedle-dee Dum, he'll stab you where you stand
"I've had too much of your company,"
Says, Tweedle-dee Dum to Tweedle-dee Dee
