Mark Ruffalo Endorses Backyard Dream and Film in Wisconsin

By Published On: March 28, 2024

Backyard Dream is incredibly humbled by Mark Ruffalo supporting the (SB1026) WI Film and TV Film incentives bill. He truly understands the importance of keeping production industry jobs in WI and making sure we continue to grow Arts funding. It takes a community to make an impact and we are happy to be a part of that impact.

Quote from Mark Ruffalo

“I am writing today to express my support for film incentives in Wisconsin under SB1026, recognizing the potential to stimulate economic growth through increased film and TV production spending within the state. Having spent the last near 4 decades in the film and television I can attest to just how much these incentives drive studios to open up shop in American states and Wisconsin would be a very attractive destination, because of it’s natural beauty and historical industrial cities. The implementation of these incentives provides an opportunity for Wisconsin residents to secure employment within the state film industry, catering to the aspirations of young filmmakers, creatives, and professionals seeking to establish themselves in their hometowns. Let’s face it, there will always be a market for film and television and it’s a constantly growing market with opportunities for future and it’s a constantly growing industry with opportunities for future
generations that leave Wisconsin to seek out these high paying jobs. This initiative marks a positive stride in fostering the expansion of arts and the creative industry within the state. I am impressed by the progress and future prospects of Kenosha, WI. Notably, Backyard Dream Productions is pioneering an industry in Kenosha, demonstrating an unwavering commitment to the film sector. Their dedication to invest in cutting-edge technology with the first virtual production studio in Wisconsin, represents a significant achievement. This collective effort signifies a progressive direction towards enhancing the cultural and economic landscape of Wisconsin.” – Mark Ruffalo (Avengers, 13 going on 30, Zodiac)
