WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -
The new film incentives package
submitted for approval by the NC House and Senate could have major impacts on
how the industry operates in the Cape Fear region. This has prompted one
locally grown actor to speak out against those changes.
Dominic L. Santana moved to Wilmington after high school and
was bitten by the acting bug. Ever since then he has been working with locally
filmed productions and even finding his way on to the BET show The Game.
Santana is passionate about the film industry in North Carolina
and particularly here in southeastern NC. He released the following regarding
the proposed budget cuts to film.
disheartened that the NC representatives are working so hard to basically
dismantle what the hard working people of NC Film have built. I started my
acting career in Wilmington NC and through my successes have continued to come
back and create projects and opportunities in NC film. NC has my full support
as I'm one of the 4200 that the incentive changes affect. If dismantled again,
NC film may not be able to regain the traction it has now. NC is known for many
things but film has become it's biggest calling card throughout the world. I
hope they don't destroy the pride of NC, give us the support that Georgia gives
their film community. NC is the lead dog on the east and we worked hard for it.
Governor McCrory we're calling on you to step up and save NC film. If he can't
do that then we definitely will make sure we have different leaders next time
the polls open."
