NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Utah production company behind "The Work and The Glory" series of films says it's moving to Tennessee to take advantage of an incentives package.
Vineyard Productions of Salt Lake City specializes in low-budget features and large-format movies for museums and science centers. They also filmed "The Work and The Glory" series about Mormon history in Tennessee in recent years.
The company's finance director Brian Kubricky says their clients demand they go where the incentives are.
Vineyard will qualify for a new rebate program for film companies based in Tennessee that allows for a 15 percent tax refund for companies spending at least $1 million.
They could also be eligible for up to $40,000 in grants through a state fund created last year and administered by the Tennessee Film, Entertainment and Music Commission.
