The state’s new film incentive package benefits low-budget films as much as it does Hollywood blockbuster films. The General Assembly set a low threshold for the film incentive so that the state could assist local, independent, and low budget filmmakers. This will cause more films to be produced in the state and may help keep students in the state who study at universities in North Carolina. Additionally, more jobs will be created and the industry will continue to grow.
North Carolina’s film industry is booming again. Last summer, the General Assembly offered new economic incentives to lure feature film production back to the state and the move is working. Screen Gems studios in Wilmington currently has five film and TV productions filming including, The Marc Pease Experience, Bolden, Nights in Rodanthe, Cabin Fever 2, and One Tree Hill. The increase in production has also brought jobs back in the industry.
