Production Charts, Tax Incentives Featured On Redesigned Variety411 Website

By: Daniella Aramnia

Variety 411, the nation’s one-stop production resource, recently launched two new online features: production charts and an incentive map. Initiated over 35 years ago, Variety 411 remains the country’s only qualified directory – all listings entered into the directory have professional references highlighting their work on film, television, commercial and new media productions.  In addition to a wealth of production listings, the Variety 411 website offers many valuable features essential to the production community, including news and tips, stage charts and a monthly eNewsletter.

Variety 411’s newest features help get productions off the ground. Variety 411’s production charts are powered by Variety Insight and provide a comprehensive overview of all projects in pre-production and production. These user-friendly charts offer a full genre break-down, highlight each productions’ location, provide contacts for projects in pre-production and production, outline the commitment level and offers various ways to filter a search.

In addition, Variety 411 now offers a global production incentives map that allows users to browse production incentives in all fifty United States, as well as regions within New Zealand, Australia, France and Canada. The map allows users to search by country, state or province and gives access to types of funding, funding calculations, application requirements and more.  The map is powered by OLFFI and helps producers maximize their return on a production incentive.

While Variety 411 offers many online resources, they also publish a physical directory that serves both Los Angeles and New York City. Check out these new features along with the website’s new look here:
