Updates TIPMAP


It’s complicated. It’s ever-changing. Production Incentives have played an increasingly important role in determining the locations where motion picture and television productions are filmed.

In order to maximize your incentives, we have established The Incentives Program (TIP) with an expanding nationwide network of offices to provide you and your production the most timely and up to date information for every available incentive in the United States and around the world.

Headed by seasoned industry veteran, Joe Bessacini, our TIP program relies on our long-standing relationships with individuals in local film commissions and taxation/revenue departments, to give you timely, relevant and accurate information on the latest production incentive programs available. We don’t just pass along information. We ask the right questions and provide the expertise to assist our clients in making sense of the ever-changing rules and requirements to maximize your return.

Cast & Crew has built a strong reputation for providing our clients significant cost savings on their productions & maintaining our “customer first” attitude. Always looking to increase your return, we were the first company to purchase Workers’ Compensation Insurance from local brokers in the following states:
Florida New Mexico
Georgia Pennsylvania
Hawaii Tennessee
Illinois Utah
Michigan West Virginia

Cast & Crew has established offices in the following locations in the United States:

Burbank, California
New York, New York

Additionally, we own and operate fully staffed offices in the following locations in Canada:
