GASTONIA, NC (WBTV)- People from the movie industry are hoping new NC Governor Pat McCrory is nice to the movie industry. Right now we are told incentives in place to lure those businesses to the state last until 2015, but there is uncertainty if the plan will last.
"Nobody is saying it's going away," New Day Dream Films Founder Richard Clark, Jr. said. "But people need that outright commitment to commit coming here."
The film industry has been good to NC. It has poured millions of dollars into the state's economy. Clark hopes McCrory sees the special tax cuts to the industry as a boost and not a burden.
"Sometimes when you have economic issues," Clark said. "You see a tax break - getting rid of a tax break is an immediate solution, instead of looking at the revenue at what that brings to the state."
McCrory is keeping film crews in the dark about his intentions.
