~ Governor Greg Abbott has announced a Film Friendly Texas Workshop to be held in Lubbock on Tuesday, April 4th.

The workshop is designed to help communities attract new jobs and investments by matching local businesses with production-related needs, stimulating the local economy by creating jobs for Texas-based crew members and local residents, as well as creating on-site spending at local small businesses.

The target audience for this workshop is community representatives who will serve as the community's point-of-contact for facilitating media production requests. Most communities choose a member of their city or county government, Convention and Visitors Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, or Economic Development Corporation.
