What's Next: The Film Industry
By Catherine M. Welch
Wilmington, NC – North Carolina's film industry pushed and lawmakers passed incentives for film production last summer.
The incentives deliver a 15% rebate on goods, services and labor for productions with at least a $250,000 budget.
While the industry is now using the incentives to lure productions, it's keeping an eye on South Carolina, that also has a generous package.
I asked The Director of Wilmington's Film Commission Johnny Griffin whether South Carolina's incentives harm the state's film industry or boost it by making this part of the country more attractive to production companies.
