Qualified productions include narrative and documentary films, film soundtracks, television programming, videos and music videos, commercials and video games. A qualified production company may be eligible to receive a rebate from the State of Alabama for a portion of the expenditures incurred for production activity. The amount of the rebate equals 25% of certain production expenses plus 35% of payroll paid to Alabama residents.
