How the Film Tax Credit supports technology & innovation in Massachusetts

There is a unique parallel between Massachusetts and Hollywood. Massachusetts’ technological sector drives how Hollywood makes their films. Most of the press in covering the tax credit will cite the benefits helping the smaller businesses such as the hotel and restaurant industries, and it does do that. People who have publicly been benefiting from the tax credit are the tradesmen industries such as electrical or construction for sets. All of the local press will talk...

Pen Park



I came across a quote from an Eastman College student handbook from 1884 that applies to screenwriting too; “You must walk and you must do the work. Rules are like crutches, and should not be forgotten when you are strong enough to walk or work without their aid. Think for yourself – and so digest the elements that enter into the many problems before you. You will then assimilate and make them your own, and...

Latest Edition

APR2016 Last year on the cover of our Production, Resource & Location Guide appeared a very contemporary building located on the campus of MIT created exactly one hundred years after the dedication of an equestrian statue of General Charles Devens, located at the Worcester, MA County Courthouse. Charles Devens was a lawyer, Massachusetts State Senator and General in the Union army. When the war started he was a major in the 3rd Battalion of Massachusetts Rifles. He was appointed colonel of the 15th Massachusetts Infantry in July 1861 and brigadier general of volunteers in April 1862. General Devens fought in the Battles of Ball’s Bluff, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Cold Harbor, and the Siege of Petersburg. He was wounded in battle at Ball’s Bluff and again at Chancellorsville. Later Devens was named Attorney General during the Presidency of Rutherford B. Hayes. The bronze statue of General Devens was created by Edward Clark Potter and Daniel Chester French. It was dedicated on July 4, 1906. Interesting to note that state-of-the art New England Studios is located in Devens, MA on the former Camp Devens that became Devens Army Base and served the nation for 79 years.
