St. Louis, Mo. is one of the top places to produce movie projects like Cronies because of the various tax credits and financial incentives. Missouri also offers a great support system providing information and contacts to ensure film makers are exposed to all available resources with organizations like the Missouri Film Commision and Missouri Film Office.
This film was shot entirely in STL and features a full cast of St. Louisans. Spike Lee saw ten minutes of Cronies and thought it was amazing so he offered to not only assist in financing Cronies. (which he had already done after just reading the script); Spike Lee then chose to lend his expertise as a mentor and become Executive Producer on the film.
