Yet Another Reason to Create Your Production at Skyway.
The recent addition of Skyway’s latest, state-of-the-art technologies — a new 4K/HD Control Room, a new LED Smart Stage, and a new, seamless Cyc Wall — have positioned us at the forefront of entertainment productions in the country, whether that be for a pilot, a scripted television show, or a feature film. Yet, despite our capacity to “go big,” our 10 Gig internet pipe able to live stream complex productions to the rest of the world in real time, we remain committed to the boutique side of our business, working closely with artists and filmmakers whose production needs may be on a much smaller scale. One way we do so is by helping clients both large and small navigate grants through the Tennessee Entertainment Commission (TEC). Qualified applicants may receive financial assistance of 25% to 30% of production costs. Further, qualified Tennessee expenditures for a scripted television series may be eligible for a 5% increase on all Tennessee resident labor, thereby augmenting production budgets. To be eligible for a grant through TEC, project costs must be clearly incurred in Tennessee for all three phases of production and may pertain to any or all of the following: art direction, wardrobe, make-up, hair, location fees, rental of facilities and equipment, scoring/soundtrack, special effects and other customary post-production costs.
Skyway is perfectly positioned to provide both world class production facilities and provides you with the opportunity to secure a TEC grant. Since we are located in Nashville, a city known for its many world class musicians, camera operators, audio engineers, and technical directors, there is a wealth of local and experienced talent from which to create an expert team that meets TEC requirements. Once your team is assembled, then Skyway is the place to bring your creative vision to life. We provide the complete infrastructure, from our gated parking with its 700+ vehicle capacity to our ample dressing and green rooms to our design and set production facilities to our storage area to our 4 large, state-of-the-art studios. Office space is even available if required.
But first secure that TEC grant. To help determine if your production is eligible for TEC benefits, check out the links below:
