Last year, Governor Phil Murphy signed legislation which bolsters the New Jersey Film & Digital Media Tax Credit Program through expanded digital media production tax credits and other improvements. The program, which was first signed into law by Governor Murphy in July 2018, and first expanded in January 2020, has made New Jersey a national film and television production center and continues to attract high-profile projects to New Jersey such as West Side Story, The Equalizer and The Many Saints of Newark.
Voorhees Township recently had the opportunity to have locations of our town photographed for the NJ Motion Picture & Television Commission and the South Jersey Film Cooperative. Thank you for spending the time to photograph Connolly Park, Saddle Hill Winery, Lions Lake, The Mansion on Main Street, Stafford Disc Golf, the Voorhees Fire Department and the Voorhees Town Center.
The New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission is looking for a wide array of residential, commercial, municipal and state properties that might attract a producer’s attention. From warehouses to condos, neighborhood waiting spots to historic landmarks, newly built homes to rustic farmhouses, all properties are valuable in attracting production to our town.
