MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- TV, movie and video productions in Alabama increased in 2012.

The Alabama Film Office reports 31 projects were done in the state, and the production companies spent $33.5 million. That's up from $22 million in 2011. The secretary of the state Department of Commerce, Greg Canfield, said those productions provided more than 3,000 jobs.

Alabama offers rebates to production companies that choose the state, and those rebates totaled $9.5 million in 2012.

Some of the projects done in Alabama last year include the film "42" about Jackie Robinson, the TV reality show "Sweet Home Alabama," and a music video for the Band Perry.
