411 Publishing


On Wednesday, September 23rd, the 411 Publishing / PGA Production Incentives Webinar Series will resume with “Spotlight on California, New York and Connecticut.”

The first webinar presented in the series, “Incentives 101” provided an overview of production incentives through the guidance of panelists Joseph Chianese, VP, Business Development and Production Planning at Entertainment Partners, and John Hadity, President of Hadity and Associates.   As the series continues, specific states will be selected for a more in-depth study of their production incentives and requirements.

The first three states to be reviewed include California, New York and Connecticut.  Joining moderator Joe Chianese will be Amy Lemisch, Executive Director of the California Film Commission, Pat Spinney Kaufman, Executive Director of the New York State Governor’s Office for Motion Picture and Television Development, and George Norfleet, Film Division Director of the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism.  Each panelist will discuss their states incentive program, as well as provide examples of resources available to producers in their area.

The Webinar is free to the public.  Pre-registration will provide participants with a link necessary to connect to the online presentation the day of the event.

The webinar will begin at 11:00am PST and 2:000pm EST.  The webinar will last roughly one hour.
