In an excellent article in the Star News, film supporters and industry leaders are firing back at the Governor’s claim of abuse of the film incentive and we have proof that his statements are completely false.
Pat McCrory said the state paid Comedy Central $400,000 when The Daily Show with Jon Stewart came in and covered the democratic convention. But after checking the audit records, the production company received $190,211 from the incentive not the 400k. They spent a total of $760,846 here in North Carolina.
Now, we all know the truth, however, the general public only hears so much. These are the kind of things that get people to believe all the false rumors and myths about our film industry. McCrory just spews out misinformation and goes about his business. I would like a retraction from him on his statement, and I think we should all call for it. It is our industry that the governor is abusing, not the other way around. READ ARTICLE NOW!
And if you would like to join me in asking our governor to retract his false statement, please do!
