P.A.T.S. had a very successful launch in Cleveland, Ohio on October 16th, 2010. In attendance were 50+ students, representatives from Greater Cleveland Film Commission, students and teachers from a local highschool, and folks generally interested in filmmaking!

Cuyahoga Community College was a perfect venue! A state-of-the-art complex.

Kenny Chaplin returned on twice in 2011 to Ohio, and again in 2012 for sold out seminars.

Our sincere appreciation and gratitude to Ivan Schwarz, and Jason Drake for bringing P.A.T.S. to Cleveland!

P.A.T.S. 'NEWS, RUMORS & WHISPERS'

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN OHIO!

The motion-picture tax credit's inaugural year (2010), the state attracted nine films that are expected to spend a combined $33 million in Ohio. In the two years prior to the credit, only three films of comparable size were filmed in Ohio. The slate of films includes an eclectic mix: "Unstoppable," an action-thriller with Denzel Washington, Chris Pine and a toxic runaway train; "25 Hill," the Corbin Bernsen Soap Box Derby movie filmed in Akron; and the action-thriller "Freerunner" starring former Elyria resident Sean Faris ("Never Back Down"). These films are expected to pay $9.46 million in wages to more than 3,700 Ohio workers, and pay $24.3 million to state vendors and locations. The Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit legislation earmarks $10 million in credits for the 2010 fiscal year and $20 million for 2011.
