Since this Website started six years ago in July 2010, it has grown quite a bit. It started with just movies that had at least one scene shot on Long Island, then over the years expanded to include TV shows, Music Videos, Webisodes and other items of interest to those interested in movies.

In recent years NYS has been offering a Production Credit program to productions shot outside NYS that has brought lots of movies and TV shows here for the credit. And in addition some of these productions have been shot in NYS as well.

As New Yorker’s and Long Islander’s we felt you would be interested to know what these shows are.

The following information is from “The New York State Governor’s Office for Motion Picture and Television Development” website.

The New York State Governor’s Office for Motion Picture and Television Development is responsible for the growth of the film, television and commercial production, and related industries in New York State.
