This week’s show is all about LOCATION!

Join Larry Jordan and Michael Horton as they talk with:

Marco Cordova, Director, Business Development and Production Planning, Entertainment Partners

Marco Cordova, Director of Business Development and Production Planning for Entertainment Partners, is an expert in tax incentives. And tax incentives, along with production credits, are how a lot of films are being funded today. We start our “Location!” show this week with an explanation of what tax incentives are and how to find them.
