We need this. I am a crew member fighting for my lively hood here and I am not alone. NC was ranked #3 in the Country for Film but because of lack of understanding as this comment before me we are losing our status and our jobs. I don't understand how we as a nation have no problem with our gov't giving incentives for Large Corporation to take their companies out of the Country but to give one on the only big money making business' incentive to stay in our state is such a bad thing???
I work as a buyer on features and I can tell you how much you lose by not filming in NC. We spend so much in so many areas it is unreal! All benefit and we sometimes keep small local business's in business just by filming there.
Louisiana and Michigan and Georgia are at their max-unfortunately we are not keeping up with them- we need not surpass them but we must bring our incentive plan equal and competitive to theirs....the caps are killing us!!!!! I have so many colleges losing their jobs and leaving the state because we have lost our jobs. Please fight for us and help us bring in the jobs and bring back the the industry- Film is one of the few jobs still done in the US don't lose this too! I need my job I need to work- I love to work please do not put me on unemployment.
NC can be #3 again and flourish. Everyone wins- I can give you a 'H-U-G-E' list of venders who would agree with me who depend on this.
Please keep us working and don't take away our jobs- compete and make NC a better place to be.
