Texas Motion Picture Alliance event this Wednesday (Feb. 7)

So, Texas needs a film/video game/entertainment incentive program.

Several states have them, most notably our neighbors New Mexico and Louisiana (an LA has a video game company incentive program, too).

Texas needs one, and the "but we don't charge state income tax" evasion is wearing thin.

Enter the Texas Motion Picture Alliance (TXMPA), a organization gathering steam in making a difference in Texas.

And on Wednesday, February 7th, they're having a party. A fundraising party, but a party, nonetheless.

Also, everyone should go to the TXMPA Website and register -- strength in numbers (and all that). Besides, this benefits the overall Texas economy and you directly in your creative persuits and opportunities.

Here's the skinny:
