MARZ works with clients to dramatically reduce their VFX spend.
We not only leverage federal and provincial tax systems, but handle both the administration and financing of these credits as needed. This translates to an aggressively discounted VFX price for our clients, without the hassle of administration or the burden of financing.
While the top priority for MARZ and our clients will always be quality of work, focusing exclusively on episodic content means understanding TV budgets.
Thanks to the experienced leadership of our co-president Jonathan Bronfman—a film producer and founder of JoBro Productions—the MARZ team has expertise in assisting our clients not just in executing their VFX vision, but also with managing the related rebates.
VFX studios normally handle the OCASE process. At MARZ, we go above and beyond the industry standard by financing and administrating all of the below credits, as needed.
We'll work with you to maximize your OCASE allowance—as we're eligible for an 18% Ontario rebate on the labour portion of our VFX work, we guarantee that we will spend above 60% of the VFX budget on our talented artists.
Our team has an intimate understanding of the Ontario Computer Animation & Special Effects tax credit (OCASE), Ontario Film & Television Tax Credit (OFTTC), Ontario Production Services Tax Credit (OPSTC), the Canadian film or video Production Tax Credit (CPTC), and more. Whether parts of your production are in our hometown of Toronto, elsewhere in Canada, across the United States or anywhere else in the world, working with MARZ helps you take advantage of these rebate structures and remain within your VFX budget.
