The New York Production Alliance was founded in 1998 by a group of film and television industry leaders. Their objective was to form a trade association to promote, expedite and expand production and post production in New York.
By 2000, the alliance had grown to 44 member groups including craft and talent unions, productions companies, production service companies, sound stages and post production facilities.
That same year, NYPA helped initiate a study to determine film and television productions’ economic impact on New York. Results emphasized the importance of the industry to the State and provided an important statistical basis for new regulations and programs.
In 2003, NYPA participated in the redrafting of the New York State Film Tax Incentive Program. The next year, NYPA was among many industry advocacy groups that worked for passage of legislation that ensured inclusion of industry members under COBRA insurance regulations.
Since its inception, NYPA has been an industry leader. It has spearheaded pro-industry meetings with government officials and industry discussions on competitive issues and problems facing production in New York.
