The Executive Director of the New Jersey Motion Picture and Television Commission says the state will take in between $80 and 130-million dollars in revenues from productions being shot in part of entirely in New Jersey.

Steve Gorelick says filmmakers and TV producers are lured out of New York.

“They’re spending less money, and there’s a wonderful thing here that you can’t find in New York called, ‘parking,’ and that’s why these studios are very attractive.”

Gorelick says included in the many productions are scene’s from the film version of the Broadway smash, ‘Jersey Boys’ being shot in Newark and Kearney. Also shooting its fourth season out of Newark’s Ironbound Studios, the ‘Spike’ production, “Inkmaster.”

And more than 100 reality TV shows are produced in New Jersey every year.
