The California commission that fosters ties with the film industry and pitches locations in the state for shoots is on the hunt for a PR firm to develop a communications plan.
The California Film Commission, which handles outreach with studios and producers and facilitates TV, film and commercial productions in the Golden State, released an RFP July 8 to hear from firms.
While California is well-known for its motion picture industry roots, the commission notes that it competes with more than 40 states and dozens of countries that are aggressively courting producers with incentives. "The abundance of production incentives has greatly increased filming in other states and countries, further contributing to the erosion of motion picture production in California," reads the RFP.
Budget is a modest $30K for the PR work.
Proposals are due July 22.
