The film industry IS different from the others, in that they choose WHERE they want to film. So whether the film maker shoots here or in Romania is up to them (sic "Cold Mountain").
As with all things in this world, money is most important. So the incentives are vital to the industry that's been built here over the last three decades, if we want to keep it. Let's see--they've taken away furniture, textiles, tobacco, you name it! Should we let them take away film/TV without a fight? No.
We were the # 1 "On Location" site for many years because of the hard work done here to build the industry. It has only been in the last decade that other states have wanted a piece of the film industry pie. We already have the infrastructure (studios, crew people, supporting businesses, etc.) right here. Let's keep this industry, shall we?
