JUNEAU- The state is looking for someone with Hollywood ties to sell Alaska as a film and TV production location.
   
The idea behind hiring a film industry representative is to increase the number of productions shooting in Alaska.
   
The state offers tax credits for qualified productions, and the solicitation for a film rep is an extension of the department of commerce's responsibility to promote Alaska as a film location.
   
The department estimates a budget of $60,000 and $85,000 a year for the industry representative, who is to use his or her connections within the "greater Los Angeles-based film and television industry" to promote Alaska.
   
The contractor also is to suggest advisers to help with promotional efforts and identify industry events that are important for state officials to attend.
