    I really don't understand that.
    The reason cause Miami is so famous today and many tourists wants to visit miami is cause of the Movie and Tv shows. That's it.
    Movies are long term advertising. This has a positive impact to the economy.
    Florida needs to bring back the tax incentive program

    Totally agree. It's a shame that it always comes down to $$$. It's also a shame that state leaders can't see the value in the program.

    It's filmed in California. Only the opening scenes are filmed in Miami.

    I heard there was some crazy incentive California gives movies/shows that relocate there. Anyone heard that?

    Yes. In fact they have increased the incentives recently to try and lure film crews back to LA.

    Definitely. Same with Rosewood. Only the pilot was actually filmed in Miami.

    Interesting. Why is CA so big on that though? Isn't everything filmed there anyway?

    I love watching the Miami shows that have the mountains in the background.

    I remember watching an episode of Silk Stalkings (placed in Palm Beach, but close enough) and there was a scene on the beach with cliffs behind it. Not sure anyone cared.

    I know a lot of states (like Georgia) have been able to lure show and filmmakers to their areas with even better tax incentives. They have to because the big draw to filming in LA is not only the weather, but that’s where many in the film industry live. If the incentives are good enough, even places with less than desirable weather, like Vancouver, can get them to film there! It’s really all about money. Miami will simply have to put up the dough if they want to have a better film industry.

    Also in Canada they don't have to use union film crews. Which saves a lot of money.
