COLUMBUS, Ohio — The state is investing in TV and film projects throughout Ohio via $44 million in tax credits, according to an announcement by the Ohio Department of Development.

The funds come from the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit Program, which the press release states allows for a 30% tax credit on eligible projects’ staffing and in-state production costs. These projects can include movies and TV series, but also could include “pre-Broadway productions,” music videos and even video games.
