We love Manitoba and know you will too!
Working with us as your Manitoba Service Producer, we can access a tax credit for up to 65% of labor costs. This is one of the highest tax credits in North America. With lower production costs, Manitoba can go toe to toe with most tax credits in the U.S.
The more local cast and crew labor the higher the tax credit. We have exceptional contacts in the deep talent pool in Manitoba, a wide variety of world class cast and crew eager to work on projects at home.
We have local access to equipment and studios that rival any other city including a purpose built studio with 15,000 sq ft. clear span, supported by office space, a carpentry shop, loading docks, wardrobe and a commissary. In addition there are a variety of warehouses that enable Manitoba to accommodate multiple shows.
For locations, Winnipeg and Manitoba can be shot as stand-in for a wide variety of places and times. From modern-day Chicago (Shall We Dance, Amreeka) and Detroit (The Horseman) to New York in the 50s (Capote) to turn of the last century Kansas City (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford). Rural locations includes coastline, beaches and cottage country (Falcon Beach, My Life As A Dog, The Atwood Stories) to mid-west towns (The Lookout, The Stone Angel) to Arctic terrain (Rough,Whiteout, K-19: The Widowmaker). The list goes on and we know you will not be disappointed when you arrive in this beautiful prairie province located right in the center of Canada.
Once you shoot with us in Manitoba, we know you'll want to come back!
