Capturing Alaska: Exploring the Film Tax Incentive Program Pt. 1

Bringing Alaska to life


by Russ Slaten

Bringing Alaska to life.

The film tax incentive program saw a 10-year extension last legislative session with the goal to add millions of dollars into the economy and create opportunities for Alaskans.

One production benefiting from the tax credits is the independent feature film Wildlike.

Filmmakers will be on location from Juneau, and Anchorage, to Denali National Park and everywhere in between.

The only spot portrayed as someplace else is Seattle, Washington-- filmed in Anchorage.

The director says without the benefit of Alaska's film tax incentive program, none of this would be possible.
