NC FILM: Your mission today!

NORTH CAROLINA FILM SUPPORTERS – 

First, thank you for everything you have done this week! And just so you know, all hope is not lost!  There is still a chance that an amendment will be added this morning on the floor of the House to extend the incentives. It’s not over.  And it is not over BECAUSE of you.  They will reconvene at 8:45am this morning.

Everyone in support of the incentives you have a mission this morning!  Contact as many House members as you can.  Ask them to save NC Film.  Keep our film incentives. Thom Tillis is still on the top of the list.

This is no longer a Finance Committee issue; that’s over. Supporters should focus on the entire House and the Speaker of the House, Thom Tillis!

Also, supporters should keep the conversation nice…apparently there was a lot of negativity coming from people calling in yesterday (even toward legislators who support film), which only makes things worse.

Make sure you tell them to please please please support film and be sure to mention that the film incentives creates and maintains jobs. Losing the incentives means losing jobs.

Again, DO NOT threaten or name call!

Spread the word, call and email NOW before it’s too late.

Here’s the list – GENERAL ASSEMBLY CONTACTS

Please call Speaker ThomTillis and tell him to keep the film incentives in the budget.  Phone: 919-733-3451  

 

Also, in case you haven’t seen it: There is a Petition to the North Carolina State Senate, “Leave the North Carolina Film Incentive alone.”  Sign it today.

  1. I sincerely hope that everyone’s efforts to rally support for the NC film industry is a success. However, I have my doubts that you are going to be able to sway Thom Tillis and others to your cause. Thom’s apparent change of heart towards film probably has more to do with the anti-film position taken by Americans For Prosperity than anything else. Thom has a costly campaign ahead and will need funding from the big boys. Therefore, from now until November his constituents will be the super PACs, not the citizens of NC. Remember this when you vote.
