Hawaii’s film commissioner, Donne Dawson, believes that once business resumes, Hawaii will continue to be an attractive destination since producers may be inclined to go to places where the COVID-19 outbreak wasn’t severe.
Hawaii also offers attractive tax incentives for filmmakers, including a 20-25% Refundable Production Tax Credit and an annual rolling cap of $50 million, as of July 9, 2019.
“I’m talking to people right now from the major studios that are wondering and waiting when we’re going to open our door again because they have projects that they want to send here,” said Dawson in a recent interview with Hawaii News Now.
In 2018, the Hawaiian film industry provided more than 4,000 jobs and generated a record $477 million in direct spending, according to Dawson, and she said that there are roughly two dozen productions currently on hold, including commercials, TV series and feature films.
