Amid continued deliberation about the future of the state's film incentive program, the N.C. Film Office will soon face the loss of its leader.
Aaron Syrett, director of the film office, confirmed Tuesday that he will step down from the position July 31.

Pat McCrory's administration wants to oversee under the N.C. Partnership for Economic Development, a new public-private partnership that will work in tandem with state government.
