Film Incentives

First--the movie makers don't come to North Carolina unless there is an adequate film incentive in place because all the other states have incentives too (it's a part of the business now). Secondly--they have to spend about $1 million before they are eligible to get the 25% back & that's not on everything, only certain items. Third--they have to apply for this incentive like a tax return (so they're spending money to get it back and wait after they've already shot the film here). And lastly--they have to give North Carolina recognition in the credits, which always hasn't been done in the 1000-1200 movies & documentaries made over the last century. For more information the NC Film office has a cool website.
