REEL SAVINGS. REAL SIMPLE!
Reel Savings is a private/public sector discount and rebate program designed to provide real savings in the below-the-line, instate production spend.
The program includes no-fee application permits on state roads, state parks, and cash rebates from production equipment vendors paid within thirty (30) days, and other discounts from businesses like rental car companies, and hotels enrolled in the program. Unlike state tax incentives, Reel Savings has no audit process, no local hire requirement, and is not capped.
The program is available for use by all projects registered with Arizona Film & Digital Media and participants of its Arizona Production Directory.
TO ACCESS Reel Savings discounts and rebates, simply register your project with our office, and/or join as an industry member, our Arizona Production Directory. You'll receive your Reel Savings ID# upon approved registration. Then, just search for the participating Reel Savings vendor you want and provide your ID number to the vendor, upon request.
To JOIN as a vendor, just register your business with the Support Services listing of our Arizona Production Directory.
