The Fate of The Furious (Universal, 2017)

KPM Helped F&F Franchise Race Toward Blockbuster Status

Cleveland, Ohio has become one of the premier filming locations, especially for action movies as “The Fate of Furious” shot 17 days in the city during 2016.  The 8th installment of the hit franchise utilized the city’s backdrop for various car chase scenes throughout the city.  The Fate of the Furious became the current 2nd highest grossing film of 2017 as a worthy entry into the anthology of the acclaimed franchise.

Maximizing the Ohio Film Tax Credit

While The Fate of the Furious utilized locations all over the world, KPM helped the production with their Ohio leg by proving assurance services related to Ohio’s state incentive tax program.  The state’s recently expanded program provided significant economic activity in the state to the tune of approximately 1,729 direct and indirect jobs along with over $225 million in state output and with a $15 million Ohio budget alone, The Fate of the Furious provided a sizable boost to the local economy.

KPM knowledge and experience with the program helped the production utilize Ohio incentives despite the production filming in so many places.  We’ve provided services like this throughout the US and with our expertise of state incentive programs, we can provide services to any range of productions.
