The very existence of your film commission support often relies on the relationships you build and nurture in your own jurisdiction. Keep your funders engaged, involved and informed, as long as it does not compromise the confidentiality of a production project. That is paramount.
Regardless of what type of office you work in and the depth of your responsibilities, one of the best investments of your time, in addition to liaison work with productions, is to build and nurture your local partnerships, relationships and alliances.
You will gain the reputation as someone who can get the job done, deal with challenging circumstances, have integrity and have the best interest for your region. These relationships are built over time and are invaluable.
