Tonight on Under the Dome: When Barbie and Sam set out to investigate a mysterious tunnel, a cave-in severs their path back to Chester’s Mill. Meanwhile, Julia and Big Jim face off in a struggle for power as a dust storm rages in the town. Here’s a preview.
Under the Dome Season Two is already up for pre-order on Amazon.com. There is no date set yet, however, and not too many other details to speak of except it is available on DVD or Blu-Ray.

ICYMI: Can we give MAJOR kudos to our local boy Michael Rosander for his awesome performance with Tom Mison in this Sleepy Hollow clip that came out last week. Plus, we can’t mistake his technique with the flip of a credit card, from No Sleeves Magic. You rocked it, Rosander! Well done! WATCH NOW!
FILM INCENTIVES UPDATE: It has been quite a roller coaster ride over the past week. And what’s been happening in the General Assembly is very confusing. I’ve tried to put out everything in the most simple form, but even then if you are not a political junky, it’s very hard to follow. As it stands at this moment. Film is very much alive.
People are confused because the House passed the budget, but it has nothing to do with the resolutions on the table at the present moment. It’s complicated, but don’t let that confuse you. 763 is a Revenue Corrections Bill its not a part of the regular budget, therefore it can still be acted upon. It’s not over.
At the moment, 763 is tucked into the adjournment resolution 881. Now, 763 has the Ted Davis’s amendment in it, which gives us a one year extension of a lower Tier 1(but still Tier 1) incentive, not the $10 million grant that will destroy us.
We as a film community MUST have this pass, but we are not alone. Also included in 763, are things like JDIG, (Job Development Investment Grant). Without it, our entire economic development structure will shut down. And even more jobs will be at stake besides film.
The Senate is supposed to convene Tuesday, 10am, however, there is nothing on the calendar, so they might just adjourn the moment they reconvene. Same goes for the House on Wednesday. This would mean we might not see any decisions made until mid August.
If you see revenue laws or technical corrections on the calendar, that’s when we need to tune in and make those calls to the Senate and ask them to support the extension of the film incentives.
