We're likely to have more bumps on the road regarding the incentives.  It will be up to us, the film community, to rally the troops and provide verifiable information as to the valilidity of the program.  There is ample eveidence out there to justify everyone of the incentives.  If we, the filmmakers, can take it upon ourselves to provide the evidence without confrontation.  We can not only preserve the incentives but look to improving them without having to lean on the government.   We should not expect the Film Office and the new Governor to fight our battle.  Done right, it is clearly a win-win situation.  Let's move forward in a united front that demonstrates how the 
Media programs benefit the entire state and gives us a platform to do our work.  Let me know what you think.  We need to continue this dialogue among us to create an even better environment for current and future Media product providers.
 
Best,

One point that wasn't mentioned in the article, and may be a little relevant here, is that Michigan is draconian, compared to NM in it's approval process for receiving tax breaks.  Many films have been denied by the board, an no one seems to really understand the criteria, by which films are approved in Michigan, but it seems that they are applying their own rules in arbitrary ways, which have more to do with the morality of the content, and the associated politics.  I hope we can continue to avoid that particular problem here in NM,

Frank I think you missed the whole point of the article. I really see no need in comparing our incentives with the other incentives. Michigan has that new car smell to it and more Producers were inclined to shoot there this past year. This is just a fact Frank. The point is that legislators are trying to kill the incentives there also.

Sounds familiar but not the same, Ken.  NM still has the best incentive programs going.  Michigan's ramp up is still trying to figure it out while NM already has a highly professional crew base and an infrastructure that can service a number of films and TV shows simultaniously.  Recent studies in California and other states clearly indicate that there is a roll over effect from money production companies spent within our borders.  The only question remains "How many times does it roll over."  Anywhere from 3 to 7 times depending on the study.  So let's be proud and promote what our legislators, the Film Office, and our professionals have done and make it better.  Michigan doesn't come close.
