The Other Side

Sure a lot of those jobs are temporary when film productions need to boost numbers, but to think that the people involved don't settle down with families when the opportunity presents itself is foolish. One only needs to look at Wilmington and how the TV industry took root. If you lose the film incentives TV will eventually follow and those jobs are more or less permenant as long as there is a show to film.

It has become increasingly predominant for film and tv series that could be shot here to move to Lousiana where the scenery and landscape is the same, but the incentives are better.

"The Cool Factor" is something NC is often missing. As a state that relies heavily on tourism these days you have to have it. Without some type of "Cool Factor" you might as well totally dismiss tourism in general. Its also plain good advertising. When the right film comes along like say Sideways for the California wine valleys....it can be invaluable.
