Bill to increase film productions in Indiana passes Senate

A bill, which was unanimously approved by the Senate, would allow the Indiana Destination Development Corp. to create a film and media incentive program that would hopefully bring more film productions to Indiana.

Tony Samuel, who backs Senate Bill 262, said Indiana has tried to bring production companies to the state before but it wasn’t done right.

He says Indiana needs an incentive to compete with those states.

Samuel says since 2016, Indiana has lost $100 million in business, and that not having this incentive program is also hurting graduating Indiana students who want to break into the industry.
