EUE/Screen Gems building studio in Miami


WILMINGTON, NC (GREATER WILMINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL) -- A spokeswoman for EUE/Screen Gems Studios confirmed Friday afternoon that the company plans to construct a movie studio and related facilities in Miami.
The Miami Omni Community Redevelopment Agency on Thursday announced that its board of commissioners approved a contract with EUE/Screen Gems Studios for the development and operation of the Miami Entertainment Complex (MEC), a movie studio and related facilities. The complex will be located in the city’s Media and Entertainment District, the news release stated.

Interesting development

Is EUE preparing for an end to NC incentives? Or is this to augment Wilmington? I can't help but think that there's a limit to the amount of filming that takes place and that the EUE facility here in town may be showing some age.
I am against all incentives but I am particularly against this one for the inconsistent work they provide.


Vog - You obviously are not

Vog - You obviously are not familiar with the filming industry. As a security officer for the industry here in Miami, FL I can tell you that Atlanta currently owns the market and is overloaded with movie, TV, and commercial projects and I am certain that EUE/Screen Gems is getting its fair share. Obviously Miami is so convinced that the company is solid enough and will do well enough that it kicked in $11.5 million to welcome them here. Hopefully our Florida Legislature will decide to provide tax incentives that will make Miami and our state competitive with Atlanta. We have much to offer the industry as many film productions companies have experienced for many years.
