Virginia holds rich historical gems within its borders, great for filming in the state that calls themselves the Mother of Presidents. Warm climate, coastline, and wildlife provide generous filming locations.

The Commonwealth of Virginia has a broad spectrum of filming opportunities that are highlighted by its historical beauty dating back to the earliest moments in United States history.

To go along with its stunning beauty and historical presence, Virginia has an exemption on its state sales and use tax, and an exemption on hotel tenure in excess of 30 days. Recently, a base-income tax credit of 15% of all qualifying expenses was put in place with a bonus of 5% if the production is filmed in an economically distressed area of the Commonwealth.
