Perry signs incentive bill to lure films to Texas – San Antonio Business Journal:

OK, Texas YouTube-ers.  Time to step it up a notch! 

It’s official. Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday signed a bill earmarking $22 million worth of incentives for in-state film productions. The bill allows projects completed after Sept. 1 to be eligible for a rebate of up to 5 percent of their costs, or a maximum of $2 million. Film industry analysts say this will attract productions from nearby states with similar incentive laws, like New Mexico and Louisiana, which have siphoned production away from Texas.
