Film Studio Renovation Blessing

Governor Linda Lingle gives special recognition to longtime Film Studio Facilities Manager Tammy Hasegawa as State Film Commissioner Donne Dawson looks on

On Friday, 6/23, government officials, legislators, and members of the local film industry came together to celebrate the completion of the Hawaii Film Studio capital improvement project. This much-needed renovation resulted in the completion of two new buildings, a production office building and technical building which houses a construction mill and set dressing storage.

We also celebrated the passage of Act 88 last month which established a 15% refundable production tax credit on Oahu and 20% on the neighbor islands. This new credit takes effect July 1, 2006--that's this Saturday!

Here are some photos from the event. And here's the program.
