This week on the Carolina Snowflakes Podcast we’re sharing with listeners a recent encounter with a Hollywood rep that left a bad taste in our mouths. Is Hollywood all it’s cracked up to be and why are states such as NC and SC so willing to kiss the rears of movie makers? Maybe it’s just us, but the current movie production incentive programs are certainly questionable--particularly in how they give the green light for producing endlessly excessive waste.
Now don’t get us wrong. We love movies as much as anyone, but we have some questions when it comes to these tax breaks and rebates given by states where filming occurs. Are they worth it? Do states actually benefit from their own “please film here” movie incentive programs? Seems to be the million dollar question; literally and figuratively.
Tune in to hear our hilarious takes on how these programs work, plus our brilliant suggestions on improvement. Just FYI, we give good advice. Hopefully the states are listening.
