What are some of the greatest financial perks of filming in your state? Our Film Industry Financial Incentive is certainly helpful. It's a 12% - 15% cash rebate program, and full details are available under the "Incentives" tab at

Other than that, Wyoming is noted for its low cost of living and low taxes.

What are some of the locations in your state that filmmakers should know about? Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are the big draw, but our many ranches are ideal for filming. Terrain of all types is available in the cowboy state, including canyons, badlands, grasslands, and mountains. And on many ranches, you get all of the above while dealing with a single private landowner.

Otherwise our scenic roads are ideal for automotive shoots, and our long winter season makes out-of-season snow shoots possible.

What can you tell us about talented labor in your state? Do you have robust union representation? Wyoming is a right to work state.

What are some of the recent productions that produced films in your state? "Modern Family," "Django Unchained,"
