IDEAS Announces Cash-Based Post Production Incentive

By John Lux

[fusion_dropcap class="fusion-content-tb-dropcap"]O[/fusion_dropcap]rlando-based IDEAS announced the launch of a 25% cash rebate for post production services for qualifying television and film projects. While some countries, states, and even counties offer incentives for the entertainment industry, IDEAS will offer a cash-based rebate package immediately making them a destination for post production.

“In the past, we have compared favorably versus those with an incentive. Now when you consider our exceptional service at a fair price for editing and post production audio services, and a client can get 25% cash back, this takes our offerings to the next level,” stated John Lux, COO at IDEAS. “We’ve taken a careful look at how we optimize our work process and are now in a position to offer a significant cash-based rebate for our TV and film clients, no cap, no cumbersome paperwork to fill out. When you look at what we offer, being easy to get to and from Orlando International Airport and our existing relationship with the Double Tree Downtown Orlando, we have the entire package.”

As part of the incentive package, if a client signs a contract, and completes post production services (editing and post audio) for a minimum of $50,000, the client will receive 25% cash back rebate within 60 days of completion of the project and full payment made to IDEAS. In recent years, many states have subscribed to a tax credit incentive that involves the buying and selling of tax credits as a means of attracting television and film projects. The new IDEAS cash-based incentive is one of the few remaining cash-based programs and the only cash-based incentive dedicated to a specific post production provider.

In recent years, IDEAS has provided editing, mix, sound design and ADR services to hundreds of projects including miniseries, made for TV movies, documentaries, independent films, television series and features for numerous worldwide clients. The team at IDEAS has been providing editing services for more than 20 years along with comprehensive audio services, including dialogue editing, sound design, foley, ADR, and final mixing. In 2011, IDEAS opened an acoustically designed, custom built post production audio mixing studio, praised as one of the best surround mixing environments on the east coast.
