Select regions within the state of Florida provide local incentives to filmmakers. Miami-Dade County offers a rebate for qualifying production expenses. Tier 1: A minimum local expenditure between $500,000 and $999,999 for a maximum grant of $50,000 per project. Tier 2: A maximum grant of $100,000 may be available to productions with a minimum local expenditure of $1,000,000.
Feature films, scripted TV content, commercials, documentaries, music videos, animation, and video games can all qualify so long as at least 70 percent of the entire production is produced in Miami-Dade County and reflected as the portrayed location.
Applications should be received at the beginning of pre-production. The rebate is granted upon completion of an audit reviewing expenses, as well as local hire requisites.
Additional incentives of up to $75,000 may be available through county municipalities for qualified local spend and hotel accommodations, as well as the waiving of public location fees.

This epic production was a mini feature film: multiple locations, tons of cast in period wardrobe, vintage automobiles, and art direction, including the construction of a replica race car that Sir Malcolm Campbell raced to win the “fastest speed on land” record back in 1935! The spot has won DGA director of the year awards for Martin de Thurah, as well as AICP honors for best production (yay, us!), best visual style, and best cinematography!
