Edison's first motion picture studio.
The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) Board approved at its June Board meeting proposed amendments to the New Jersey Film & Digital Media Tax Credit Program rules, with a goal of attracting more production companies to film and create digital media content in New Jersey and to encourage the development of large-scale studios in the state.
NJ SEED: It seems appropriate that NJ should promote motion picture production. NJ’s Thomas Edison invented motion pictures and the first movie “studio” was located at his West Orange Laboratory. Film and digital media are “clean industries”. Their growth will be good for NJ.
