I agree with Lisa. The state becomes more attractive to filmmakers with an incentive. I for one have been working here for the past year developing the post production sound aspect of things.
I'm a foley artist originally form Los Angeles and know for a fact that filmmakers are looking for these tax breaks. If I didn't believe it was a worthwhile venture I wouldn't be in the midst of building a second stage.
Yes NM could still get SOME work but if the rebate stays intact I feel the best is yet to come.
Hollywood is slowly migrating to places like this in order to keep functioning with class, perhaps a little more humanity and of course profitability.
I sure hope someone is listening.
