TXMPA’s Monthly Central Texas Meeting/Mixer at The Highball
February 28, 2010
About the Event:
It's time once again for TXMPA's Monthly Central Texas Meeting/Mixer at The Highball - this Sunday from 5-7pm.
Please join us for this free event, and remember it's open to the public, so we encourage you to invite your friends, colleagues and associates to attend as well.
THIS MONTH'S GUEST:
Texas Film Commission Director BOB HUDGINS joins us for a conversation and Q&A, during which he'll give us an update on production in Texas and our new and improved incentives program for film, tv, commercial and video game makers -- who should definitely attend! Thus far, the Texas Moving Image Industry Incentive Program has helped bring films like Machete, Predators and True Grit to Texas, along with television series like Friday Night Lights, The Deep End and Code 58, as well as numerous video game and commercial productions. In fact, after our legislation (HB 873) was signed last April, the program awarded over $22 million in production incentives through 2009, generating $184.5 million in Texas production spending and nearly 11,000 Texas cast and crew jobs by year's end. Don't miss your chance to hear the latest from Bob on how we're doing so far in 2010, and what's on the horizon this year.
ABOUT OUR CENTRAL TEXAS MONTHLY MEETING/MIXER:
Join the Texas Motion Picture Alliance the last Sunday of every month at the Highball where we'll feature industry guests spanning film, tv, commercials and video games, offering behind-the-scenes peeks at their projects along with perspectives on the Texas production incentives program. Then, stick around after our meeting/speaker (5-6pm), when we'll have a networking mixer from 6-7pm, and of course you're encouraged to avail yourselves of The Highball's excellent bar, dinner menu, bowling, skeeball and karaoke - not to mention a $4 White Russian drink special.
