A new report from the Center for Economic Research in Tennessee (CERT), the research arm of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, analyzed the recent impact of the film and production industry on Tennessee’s economy.
Tennessee currently ranks No. 7 among all states in the nation for employment in the film production industry. Since 2010, employment in Tennessee’s film industry has grown 8 percent. Nearly 4,400 Tennesseans work in the film industry, earning an average of nearly $59,800 annually before benefits, a figure that is 21.3 percent higher than the average wage of all industries in Tennessee.
CERT estimates that such projects have generated $228.3 million in new income for Tennessee workers. These production projects have created more than 4,000 new full-time jobs and generated nearly $371 million in economic output for the state over an eight-year span, CERT finds in the report. Additionally, TEC has supported hundreds more production projects with non-financial assistance. These production activities have created nearly 600 jobs and almost $35 million in new incomes for Tennesseans.
CERT estimates that tourism resulting from viewership of the CMT’s “Nashville”, which airs in more than 80 countries, generated about $486.7 million in visitor spending and $34 million in state sales tax revenue over the three years following the show’s premier. The growth in Tennessee’s motion picture and production industry also helps generate economic activity in other sectors of the economy – especially the heartbeat of Tennessee’s creative economy: the music industry.
