Please, Please attend the State of the State meeting during The Cucalorus Film Festival and make your support known

Thursday, November 12, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Thalian Hall, Ballroom

The panel includes Julia Boseman (North Carolina State Senator), Johnny Griffin (Wilmington Regional Film Commission), Bill Vassar (Screen Gems Studios), Aaron Syrett (N.C. Film Office), Lou Buttino (UNCW Film Studies) Kelly Tenney (One Tree Hill, Southern Gothic Productions). Actor Peter Jurasik will moderate.

We need every available member of the production community there to show that we are a force, that we are engaged, and that we have issues that need to be addressed.

  1. Ask Julia Boseman why she used an out of state production company to produce her commercials. Ask Johnny Griffin who benefits from the film commission, who actually controls it, it is a private not for profit, ask to see the books. Ask Bill Vassar why Screen Gems doesn't bring their own work here. Ask Aaron Syrett why there wasn't one single North Carolinian who could do his job, ask him what he gets paid. Ask Lou why UNCW isn't sharing with the School of the Arts, why so much competition. Ask Kelly to keep it up, encourage him, but Kelly, remember how quick things can turn around, never forget your roots, the people you owe, stay grounded, you are nothing more than what you were 5 years ago, just have a better job.
