Motion Picture Services Coordinates State Services With The Film Industry

This article first appeared in issue 18, and was written by Ed Waggener.

The Commonwealth of Kentucky has a film commission, called Motion Picture Services, whose director is Jim Toole, a native of Dry Ridge in Grant County. The office is located at 2200 Capital Plaza Tower, 500 Mero Street, Frankfort, KY 40601. The phone number is 1-800-FILM KY.

If Columbia and Adair County are be considered as locations for movies, Mr. Toole says, it is important to keep the town looking period. Frankfort fails on that score because, he said, "A bank built a great big old Fred Flintstone looking building and that spoils the whole thing."

To make things easier for film makers, the state has a sales tax rebate program, Under it, Kentucky's 6% sales and use tax can be refunded to eligible television and motion picture producers
