Antonio Meneses Saillant's insight:

I posted this petition on Mar 30, 2012 about needing support to look into the case for the return of Digital Media and Film Tax Credit. 

Click below for petition:

http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/reinstate-the-film-tax-credit-in-the-state-of-new-jerse.html

Does it take an article from Variety magazine to make a difference?

In addition, on April 12, 2012 I wrote an article in the examiner concerning the NJ tax credits

Click below for article:

http://www.examiner.com/article/make-it-so-campaign-reinstate-the-film-tax-credit-the-state-of-new-jersey

I am also a film and television producer and would like this to happen in the state of New Jersey.

I agree with producer, Gail Barringer on her comment stated in the Variety magazine as follows:

"She doesn’t think lawmakers “have a clear grasp on the numbers and how it benefits the community, which is a shame. Jersey is a great place to shoot. (Crew members) live here. There are lots of wonderful spaces to build stages. It has a lot of diversity as a state.”

Paul Sarlo, chairman of the state Senate’s budget committee noted that the Standard & Poor’s report faulted the state for coming up short of revenue projections in the current fiscal year. He said that shows Christie’s administration should listen to lawmakers’ critiques about overly rosy projections to fix the problems.

Article in the International Policy Digest: 
http://www.internationalpolicydigest.org/2012/01/23/going-green-in-new-york/

* Let us do in NJ what we are doing in NY, Great idea!

I have one more idea to help create a "Jersey Comeback" for the film industry by filming in NJ, a movie entitled "The Golden Knights," where I will create and implement environmentally sound practices. Bring future films that will represent the best that green living has to offer in order to better our environment not only in the State of New Jersey but the world.

Article in the NJ 'THE RECORD'

http://www.northjersey.com/news/incredible-winning-spirit-1.202724

Support the NJ Digital Media and Film Tax Credit.

Virgin Group’s entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson has this advice: “Obstacles and challenges are healthy for everyone, not just entrepreneurs. They force you to think outside the box... to be creative.”

I want to impress upon all of you, as well as the governor’s office, that [New Jersey has] a proud history of the arts and I cannot believe that a program like HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, chronicling a slice of our state’s history, is actually being filmed in Brooklyn rather than Atlantic City. The reality is that Boardwalk Empire chose to go to New York with higher production costs because they could recoup those losses through [New York’s] generous tax credit.

The high cost of making movies and television programs today virtually guarantees that any state that doesn’t offer some form of tax incentive is certain “to lose out on the lion’s share of the business.
