  1. Kevin :

    Excellent! I was almost considering moving to Wisconsin to take advantage of their tax break.

    Key word being almost.

  2. Administrator :

    Kevin – The tax incentive is A. not law yet, and B. for projects with sizeable budgets and is partially based on approxmiate running time. (See the proposal outline on the Illinois Film Office’s Web site.) So, although I should chide you furiously for even thinking about becoming a Cheesehead for kino’s sake – even though that annual Madison film festival always looks pretty spif – I wouldn’t sing Rod’s praises until the bill is approved and honest-to-god film work makes its way to the Land of Lincoln on a regular basis. – JP
