Page Parkes Political Action in Austin, Texas
Page Parkes, a member of The Texas Motion Picture Alliance (TXMPA), has dedicated herself for years to lobbying to the Legislature in Austin for the funding of bills that would enhance the entertainment arena in Texas.
Her goal, along with the numerous organizations that have advocated with TXMPA, is to continue serving the film, video, interactive and digital media production industries.
In the past, Page Parkes has combined efforts with members of TXMPA such as Garry Brown, Producer of Prison Break in Dallas, and Rodney Gibbs, Video Game developer in Austin, to support funding of the Texas Film Incentive Program.
They sought to provide competitive economic incentives for the film, video, interactive, and video game industry and to oppose the increase in cost of doing business in Texas. “Joining the fight for such a great cause truly was one of the best moments of my career. Standing in the Capital in Austin,Texas and convincing politicians that funding this particular bill would enhance every aspect of the city, not just the modeling or acting divisions, was amazing" said Page.
The bill which was signed by Governor Perry On March 23, 2009, was one of the biggest feats not only for Page Parkes Center of Modeling and Acting in Houston as well as the Page Parkes Management office in Dallas, but also for the state of Texas. This bill now allows for more filming in our own back yard and creates a greater need for casting calls in major cities such as Houston, Austin, Dallas and San Antonio. We are now competitive with other markets that use incentive dollars to land these film projects that have overlooked our great resources unless enticed to come here.
