About Montclair

The township of Montclair is a wealthy, liberal, and diverse bedroom community in Essex County encompassing 6.25 square miles. The 2020 census marked the population at 40,894. From the higher elevations in the Township, one can see the skyline of New York City from 12 miles away. The timing of the Montclair-New York commute averages 38 minutes each way on the NJ Transit rail to Penn Station.

Montclair was incorporated as a township in 1868 to enable the building of a second rail line. In 1894, Montclair was reincorporated as a town. However, in the latter part of the 20th century, the citizens protested the inequities of the revenue-sharing system of the Federal government. In 1980, Montclair was reincorporated back into the township of Montclair to take advantage of the larger sharing of Federal aid to municipalities.

The residents of Montclair have the typical lifestyle of an affluent bedroom community with access to the vibrancy of New York City. The Township supports the arts, culture, history, parks, and open public spaces. You should have no trouble finding the perfect film shoot location in Montclair.

Advantages

  • New York City MSA
    Any film shoot location in Montclair will have the advantage of the depth of choice within the MSA. It would not be unreasonable or impractical to outsource to vendors based in New York City or its boroughs.

  • New Jersey tax Incentives
    The New Jersey Film and Digital Media Tax Credit Program can be up to a 30%-35% tax credit, plus a 2% diversity credit, to production companies and filmmakers. An exemption to sales tax for certain purchases and rentals for the shoot is also available.

  • Scenery
    A typical feature of a bedroom community is the lack of chain stores, and Montclair fits this model. The township takes pride in its historic architecture and the availability of local parks and open spaces.

Disadvantages

  • Cost of doing business
    Montclair is in an expensive zip code and the cost of doing business is high. There are some price categories that, when compared to the national average, are 75% higher when state, local, and sales taxes are in the equation.

  • Climate
    Although the Watchung Mountains at the west border block the wind and the clouds and trap the warmer air from the ocean, the winter temperatures will range from 21°F to the upper 30s. Montclair experiences 50” of rainfall annually and 30” of snow.

  • Competition
    The generous tax incentive program attracts production and film shoots. Given the shortened time within the year for a non-winter shoot will result in competition, a tight market, and higher prices.
