film productions costing the state more than they bring in ???

Have you actually checked to see how much money these production companies and actors, crews etc. SPEND in the states they film in? I do not know the exact amount, but they spend a lot of money--food, gas, lumber to build sets,clothing, etc. Plus they eat at local restaurants, buy from local shops etc. and so what if the state pays them...Besides what I just mentioned, there are many people who work on these films as extras who are retired on fixed incomes and unemployed. I believe there are many more benefits than not. Do some more checking before posting the negatives of film production coming to our state. I think if you check with them, Georgia would disagree with many of they negative reasons you mention!
