So, there is a slim chance, they could leave the film incentives alone until next year in the long session. That would mean the new folks we vote for in November can tackle it or leave it the way it is. These folks up in Raleigh have never experienced such a high volume of calls for one particular issue! So, keep up the great work!! Flood the phone lines today!
If you work in film, TODAY is your day. Please, call today! Just say something to this effect –
“I work in film here in North Carolina, I live in NC, and I vote. I want you to keep the incentive as is, get rid of the sunset, and save my job!!”
Call Thom Tillis 919-733-3451

FROM JONATHAN LANDAU: In light of the recent actions taken by our NC legislators we have decided to step up our “Positive Impact” video campaign for keeping the film incentives. Some of you may have seen our video “Positive Impact”.
The plan is to have people all over the state organize separate video shoots in which they parade people in their area by the camera holding red and blue signs representing people and businesses that are positively impacted by the film industry in NC. It won’t take great equipment and all we are talking about is one shot, with the name of your town as the opening title. If you are interested in organizing and shooting a video in your area please call Jonathan Landau at (910) 520-2815 for further instructions.
