Film Incentives

Mr. Fulton,

I don't know if you have talked with local and state officials for the Film Industry, but I suggest you do so... Speak with the people over at the Wilmington Film Commission, and the NC Film Commission. Let them explain how our incentive package works. Our Incentive package is very different than that of Michigan. Your not comparing apples to apples. There is a lot wrong with Michigan's incentive package, and it cost that state dearly. You haven't seen Louisiana or Georgia (two other film friendly states) follow Michigan's lead. Neither did NC. Please educate yourself as a citizen running for public office as to the impact of the film industry in Wilmington, and the state.

As a local film worker I buy my groceries here, I pay my taxes here, I bought a house here, I purchase my vehicles here. I LIVE HERE!!

All I ever see on these blogs is people complaining about this and that just on principle. And they always ask questions such as what is the equation of cost vs. profit for the state... well don't complain about something until you have undeniable proof you have something to complain about.
