Thousands

of North Carolinians relocate annually. They face all of the challenges you mention. In an increasing number of cases, they pick up part or all of their relocation expenses. They have houses to sell; children's education to consider. I'm lost as to how pets enter the equation. Every time I relocated, they went in the back of the SUV.

Why should the movie industry be any different than every other industry in this area?

And frankly, given Screen Gem's recent move into Georgia, what more writing on the wall do you need to see?

What was the last Major -- an note I stress major -- project in NC? The only one which I can name is the Rodanthe proeject which had Richard Geer. Maybe I missed one; if I did please enlighten us.

The fact remains the Film Commission, which is heavily subsidized by the City, is not doing the job it should. Mr. Griffith - I think that's his name -- is paid around $120,000 a year to promote the file industry.

Is he doing an effective job?

I believe Nights in Rodanthe was filmed in 2008. Many should remember the egg foo yung all over the Governor when she came to Wilmington to announce the Miley project only to have that rug pulled out from under her the day she was set to announce the Project.

You talk about the benefits of having the film industry in "any" state. I wonder if you could expand on that with some specific examples.

I think it's called put up or close your bag of wind.
