Location, Location, Location

The A Sexual Thriller (AST) project is currently in soft prep with location scouting, principal casting and key creative team building all underway.

We were planning on shooting most of the first installment in Florida but given the State Legislature’s decision to discontinue the film tax incentives, we are now evaluating other locations.

Although ours is a relatively humble budget in the fifteen to twenty million dollar range, it will mean jobs for a whole lot of people. Jobs that will now go to another State or Country. 

I still hope to shoot some exteriors in Florida but that will be but a fraction of what the state would have had in terms of jobs and revenue from hotel rooms, meals, supplies, equipment rentals and facilities not to mention the direct benefits to the travel and leisure industry here from showcasing the state in such a favorable, glamorous light.

The once deep talent pool in Florida is shrinking like a landlocked lake in the midst of an arid drought. Louisiana, The Carolinas, Georgia and the province of Quebec still offer the incentives and some of these are far superior to what Florida discontinued this spring. So, we move on and adjust our plans. All part of the process.

I’ve been asked to keep you updated with regular posts so please check back weekly for more from the AST team.
