“Made in New York”
"Made in New York" is the campaign, actively promoted in 2004, by the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre & Broadcasting to promote New York City as a "Hollywood on the Hudson."

There is also a "Made in New York City" website at http://www.madeinnyc.org.

The term "made in--" was popularized by "Made in Germany" in the 1890s.

(Oxford English Dictionary)
made in : that was made in ; manufactured in ; also in extended use.

Used as a label on manufactured goods, to show the country of origin.

Sometimes depreciative, implying that goods from the country concerned are considered to be of poor quality; such uses seem to have originated with made in Germany, used in this way in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

'Made in New York City' Is a Consumer Label that Can Make a Comeback, Says Seymour Melman

Remember when "Made in New York City" was sewn into sweaters and stamped on office machines? Seymour Melman, professor emeritus of industrial engineering at Columbia's Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, does and he believes that factories can lead an economic revival again. New York laborers used to produce a bounty of consumer and capital goods known the world over, from knitted clothing and leather bags to office equipment and even ships. All that disappeared decades ago but Melman remembers when small family-owned factory lofts occupied much of midtown Manhattan below 34th Street--he even worked in one. He believes manufacturing can be revived in the city. With the economic downturn, Melman thinks the task is an urgent one.

New York City's "Made in New York Incentive Program" offers film and television productions a slate of opportunities that make it more attractive than ever to shoot in the five boroughs, featuring a combination of tax and marketing credits — along with expanded customer services for production. The "Made in New York Incentive Program" includes:

· Tax Credit: A 5% refundable tax credit on qualifying projects that work on a New York stage, a complement to the 10% tax credit enacted as part of the State budget. Eligibility for the credit requires that 75% of a project's stage work occurs on a New York stage.

· Marketing Credit: The program offers outdoor media which is equal in value to 1% of a production's total spend in New York City. Qualifying productions can make use of city-owned bus shelters for co-branded advertising related to the Made in NY production. This credit is extended to productions that do 75% of their total production for a project in New York City.

· Cultural Benefit: In conjunction with the marketing credit, this benefit allows productions to make a cultural donation equal to .1% of their production costs, to a not-for-profit cultural institution of their choice, in exchange for the marketing credit. The donation would be made in the name of talent or an executive associated with the project, and is intended to support the theatrical, film, writing, and other local arts institutions that nurture upcoming talent and strengthen the City's creative community.

· Made In NY Logo: This "Mark of Distinction," is awarded to projects where at least 75% of the overall production was made in New York City and is used in the credits of all shows participating in the program.

· Concierge Service: The program offers assistance with story development, scouting assistance, budget analysis, and discounts on participating vendors including hotels and car rentals, among other services. The Concierge Service also offers assistance and consulting services on venues for global premieres and launches. Recent examples include providing access to the Brooklyn Bridge for 10 nights for 20th Century Fox's STAY and providing locations for all four of Dick Wolf's and NBC Universal's LAW & ORDER dramas.

· New/Expanding Facilities: Over 900,000 square feet of stage space available for productions in New York City, including Steiner Studios, with its five new state-of-the art soundstages, Silvercup Studios, with its 18 soundstages, and Kaufman-Astoria which is a complete broadcast and production complex.

· Labor Enhancements: Labor is now more competitive, offering low-budget agreements for pilots and more flexible work rules.

"The marketing package extended to Jonny Zero is the perfect example of how innovative New York City can be in attracting and keeping good jobs," said New York City's Chief Marketing Officer Joseph Perello. "Under the leadership of Mayor Bloomberg, New York City is working harder than ever to find new and creative ways to grow our economy and support industries like film and television production which is vital to our City's history and future."
