Dear Business Owner,

If you’re in business for yourself it is time for you to step into the light. That light is illuminating your image on your company’s web site. It doesn’t matter if you are a small business in the upstate of New York or a conglomerate in downtown Chicago, it’s time for you to step forward and be seen. Businesses today who compete on any level have to have an Internet presence. They also have to be “rank worthy” in some shape or form to be found in the mass clutter of the web.

The face of your company will speak to your web site visitors 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And your company gets a boost from the constant web traffic created by your VContent. Search engines constantly rank video content on the web, when your video starts to be ranked your site follows. Ranking come as your video is seen and people comment about it or “like” it.

BC's Provencial Sales Tax Returns April 1, impacts film industry negatively


Provencial Sales Tax impact 

BC's emphasis on raising revenues through increased taxes means film flight to other places with more tax-friendly messages for filmmakers.

In the competitive film and TV production industry, even a small change can move the needle and impact decisions to film in one place or another.

We heard it this week in discussions with filmmakers - film tax or other incentives are a key component of determining where to film!

This Vancouver filmmakers comments on the puzzling lack of understanding about the value of film tax credits to attract filming to their communities.

We agree. They definitely make sense and work!

Communities see filming as revenue stream

Parks Dept now charging for filming and other permits

Washington, DC joins a number of other communities who are looking to raise revenues by emphasizing permits, not just for filming or TV production but also for other events which previously were free.

Seems like film tax credits are not enough to generate revenues directly to communities, so they are either enforcing existing policies or creating new policies for film, TV, music video production and other "new" events.
