There is a press conference today at the NCGA in Raleigh this morning at 10:30am. Susi Hamilton along with Mayor Bill Saffo, members of the film community and the board of the Wilmington Film Commission will be there to ask Gov. Pat McCrory to visit the production sets in Wilmington while the General Assembly is still in session while they are able to act on extending the film incentives. They will not be promoting the grant program whatsoever.
We should be able to listen on the NCGA web site.
UPDATE: I caught the audio at around 10:48am : LISTEN NOW
I will keep you posted.
In the meantime, we must continue our mission.
Please continue to call Speaker Tillis and Gov. Pat McCrory‘s office. Today, I want you to tell them your story, let them know what would happen if the film incentives went away. Make it personal. Let them see just how many people if affects and how.
