Around the State

survey says...

“We’ve had 5 or 6 films and commercials at our house. You can’t beat it. All of the money goes to maintenance of the property and into our local community. After Hurricane Ida, we were able to put $75K of revenue from film work through local contractors for repairs. We would not be able to maintain this house without the income from the film industry. Whenever a film comes through, they make a concerted effort to hire local and funnel extra revenue into the community.”
