public square the program.where our focus is on you the citizen.and your opinions on issues affecting.our state this year several different.hosts have helped us moderate our show.including Robert Travis Scott with a.public affairs Research Council LP.b-zone Shauna Sanford we also involved.Kirby Goodell from our partner LSU's.Public Policy Research Lab and tonight.also from the lab we welcome Patricia.Smith as our guest host welcome Pat.thank you well Patricia is the interim.operations manager at the lab and.currently working on her doctorate.LSU's Manship school of mass.communication thanks Beth it's a great.opportunity and I'm looking forward to.hearing what our audience members have.to say about tonight's topic hilary.swank.john malkovich sylvester stallone.Catherine zeta-jones these are just a.few of the celebrities you may have.spotted on the streets of cities across.the state of Louisiana thanks to special.film industry tax credit the Bayou state.currently hosts more motion picture.productions than any other state in the.country excluding California and New.York well the state's film tax credit.program has not been without controversy.abuse in the past led to bribery charges.against the former film commissioner and.the incentive was refined in response to.projects seeking credits for building.luxury condo developments wrapped around.film studios well while Louisiana was.the first state in the nation to enact.motion picture tax credit legislation.today 43 states offer some kind of.production tax credit the increased.competition has driven the state to add.a portfolio of entertainment sentence.including tax breaks for sound recording.digital media and live performances so.is the state getting its bang for its.buck from the film tax credits and who.exactly is profiting from filmmaking and.what's being called Hollywood south.nearly 100 years ago it was the allure.of the exotic jungles of Avery island.that drew the producers of Tarzan of the.Apes to Louisiana flash forward to 2010.and filmmakers staged the.extra-terrestrial battle Los Angeles on.the streets of Shreveport and Baton.Rouge for a different reason.the incentives have been the drawing.card to bring people here Paul Ledford.is a production sound mixer who worked.on the Columbia Pictures film he says.that Paul Louisiana has always offered.the draw of colorful locations the.state's film tax credits have been a.boon to the industry and his career now.with this increased amount of work I can.stay here and I can continue to do what.I wanted to do in my craft and I can be.at home or I can be close to home you.know over the weekends and so that's.that's helped me stay here in the state.and at the same time trained you know.newcomers along the way.Mary kornhauser is an LSU professor.employed by the HBO series Treme the.third local writer hired for the show.through the tax incentive program this.is my best professional for hire.experience I've ever had in my life in.the forests of America lies the nation's.largest swamp the incentives have also.attracted cable networks like the.History Channel to the state creating.stars like troy landry from Pierre Park.a member of the Swamp People reality.series Landry sees himself as an.ambassador for South Louisiana's unique.culture I think that's a lot of the true.successes or not you're the beauty of.the swamps or Aladin you have the.alligators but the people that's on the.show also I think it's a you know.sharing with the Western rest of the.world what we do and I think that's what.people like it so much and what makes it.so popular since the Louisiana motion.picture incentive Act was passed in 22.nearly 500 movies and television shows.have been filmed in Louisiana.according to a recent report productions.in 2010 alone created an economic impact.of 1.1 billion dollars the first movie.produced under the program was Rey which.was shot in New Orleans but following.Hurricane Katrina new production work.shifted to Shreveport spawning.facilities like wave studios and others.in the northern part of the state in.Shreveport alone we have stage works.Millennium has created studios and sound.stages here we have this build joist.animation studio moonbots studios which.is extraordinary.Elissa cantrow is a Louisiana producer.who has witnessed the growth of the film.industry and workforce firsthand when I.first started in the industry in 1995 we.had to bring the majority of crew cast.and equipment in from out of state a lot.of it came in from California or Florida.Texas New York for the most part and.since the incentives you can go on just.about any production that shooting in.and around Louisiana and I would say 80.to 90 percent if not more is all locally.found including talent crew cast growth.of the film industry in Shreveport.helped to forge a rare north south.Louisiana alliance in 29 when the.incentive was due to be phased out.instead the legislature made the tax.break permanent as well as increased it.from 25 to 30 percent on top of that we.offer a 5 percent credit for the hiring.of Louisiana labor so you are I.theoretically can get hired by a motion.picture and they can save an additional.five percent on our labor cost and that.equates to thirty five percent.cristela is director of film for.Louisiana entertainment a division of.Louisiana economic development he says.the state further shored up the.incentive in twenty nine by offering.three options for its use you earn a.dollar worth of tax credit one the.easiest and the most beneficial is to.utilize it to offset any of your.personal or corporate income taxes the.second option is to transfer it on the.open market for whatever that rate may.be but the third and most stabilizing.option that we've seen to date is the.state now guarantees 85 cents on the.dollar meaning if you have a million.dollars worth of tax credits the state.will buy them back for you and give you.a check for 850,000.this changed generated investment in.2010 from just four films equal to the.total film activity for 29 and the.increased production is reversing the.state's brain drain steli says while.bringing in substantial revenue for.every dollar that we invest for filming.in particular five dollars and fifty.some odd cent trickles through the.economy that's a good return on.investment are you getting a number of.jobs yes are you getting back in terms.of state revenues what you're putting.out in terms of the tax correct the.answer is no economist Jim Richardson.says despite the eight thousand new jobs.created in the state's film sector the.tax incentives are not paying for.themselves over the last three years the.state has averaged about a hundred forty.five million dollars in credits for the.film industry the taxes generated that.will be coming to the state over those.three years have averaged about 20 to 25.million dollars a year so from that.perspective no the state is not getting.its money back but Richardson points out.if the goal is to get the film industry.here and have it recurring mission.accomplished now the question is at what.point do we say well at some point they.need to pay up pay their own way we.can't continue to subsidize them forever.because we have other things we need to.do the money and that's a choice what to.make at some point down the line when.that time comes Diego Martinez president.of sri ports millennium studio feels the.state will be ready when there are no.more incentives Aaron wants to say well.it's Louisiana but we should be in.Louisiana and I think we're headed that.way we're still positioned as one of the.top states in the country you know.really behind Louie New York and.California we took advantage of the.little of that head start and we've.built a great crew brace here you know.the facilities are going up and if we.continue this way I think this is a.viable industry that's going to pack the.state for a long time joining us in our.studio to discuss the film incentive.program our Baton Rouge area residents.who were randomly recruited by LSU's.Public Policy Research Lab.also joining us are two high school.students representing the Legislative.Youth Advisory Council one student from.Ana Coco the other from Chalmette.welcome everyone let's review some of.the survey responses when posed with the.statement movie production incentives.are important because they make.Louisiana more competitive with other.states a large majority of respondents a.total of 89 percent either strongly.agreed or somewhat agreed with the.statement seven percent were unsure and.two percent disagreed when posed with a.statement suggesting the jobs movie.productions create are good for the.economy even if they're temporary and.part-time nearly all of those surveyed a.total of 96 percent either agreed.somewhat or strongly agreed with the.statement four percent or neutral and.when asked if they would support.eliminating or reducing the tax credit.given Louisiana's current budget.shortfall 46 percent of respondents.would reduce or eliminate the credit.thirty nine percent oppose any changes.to the incentive and fourteen percent.were unsure so let's start there are the.film industry tax credits a good idea.considering the lost tax revenue to the.state Erika you're an educator what are.the concerns you have about the large.incentives are the percentage of the.money what percentage of the money is.going towards education you know the bus.says schools school buses need seatbelts.classes need more computers more school.supplies so that's my concern on the.other side of that I've seen it work for.education matter of fact I'm a teacher.at McKinley middle magnet which is a.visual and performing arts school and.just last summer Erin Williams who is.the CEO of digital media he established.the Louisiana art and entertainment Film.School through our facility and as of.this year he's expanded it through the.city and the area and he now has over 90.students from various high schools he.told me McHenry.Tara st. Joseph Baker and.others participating in this and I see.it as a as a diamond in the rough.because we can now have our talent.trained here stay here live here work.here and contribute to the tax base okay.so you think then there are perhaps in.the areas where we might lose some.revenue that they're made up in other.areas that's the way I see it okay.Robert what do you think not at all not.at all nearly the return that we need.and from that amount of incentive being.given okay we are not revenue neutral.and that this program needs to be.revenue neutral right now the state's.got financial problems we don't have any.business giving money that way to.anybody and I am high I agree with Erika.over there we cut higher education and.look if dr. Richardson 145 million.dollars a year what was how much do we.cut higher education this year in the.state of Louisiana it's almost dollar.for dollar isn't it.so if we didn't give that we could have.put that back into our schools and.that's where our future lies in our.children and in their education okay.what about for business owners Yvonne I.know that you are part of the business.community where do you fall on this.issue business aspect they feel that the.tax incentive is a help in that it.brings more jobs to the area involves.the lure people are different types of.businesses altogether and to me I think.it's an incentive that really works as.far as the businesses announcer okay so.then is it an issue of kind of.measurement is it about kind of you know.perhaps understanding the total impact.of the issue with regard to monies that.might be lost in tax revenue and then.how they are helping the benefit.benefiting the community in other areas.Windell it seems to me.actually that we need to consider where.this is helping other areas in other.words if you had a restaurant and it.were near we're moving being filmed you.probably would derive business from.those participants and it goes much.further than that that's just a minor.example but you got all sorts of.businesses motels hotels bringing in all.these people these people are spending.money and that's evidence you know by.the newspapers and what-have-you and.media so I think there's a lot of.different aspects to the thing other.than just we're you know giving.incentives away and we're not getting.anything in return because the state in.general it's certainly getting something.in return.okay is it maybe what concerns might you.have then about you know making sure.that the taxpayers receive the maximum.benefit from these types of incentives.John what are your thoughts I think the.maximum benefit is the ripple effect by.having the tax incentive I mean I think.it's proven I mean I don't see any.downside so why are we here I think.we're here to make sure the upside.continues and the upside is the ripple.effect as he mentioned the restaurants.the entertainment venues that people.that are here go to the diversity that.Louisiana is already a diverse state but.let's face it any state can be more.diverse and nothing brings in diversity.more than theater and art and there's no.downside to that now I do agree with the.concept that perhaps in lean years we we.have to consider perhaps not having the.same amount of incentive given.especially when you look at cutting.education and health and when we're not.going to cut oil and gas incentive we're.not gonna cut film and center.I think that makes a lot of people.uncomfortable okay and so then given.that the concerns then about the cuts.perhaps to education and weighing those.against you know some of the benefits.the cultural benefits and some of the.other considerations some of the program.programs for students then is it.something that we should consider then.maybe perhaps revamping or even raising.some of the credits the tax credits that.we offer to movie corporations and or.just or are we just competing with other.states should we ask everybody that's.coming in hey are you coming in because.of it the incentive I think to get I'll.say yes okay so how do you how do you.test it okay how do you gauge the.correctness of it okay I see the film.industry as a catalyst for cata dent.cottage industries and major industries.settling here in the state I was on the.phone with Aaron Williams who is a.producer and he told me that his idea is.for every project he has he tries to.establish a residence here for the the.actors and the crew in hopes that.they'll stay here and the other thing is.for every 20 people he brings in he uses.at least a hundred and fifty local.people to support what he's doing so I.see it as something that is really.beneficial for the state and maybe it.could be tweaked here and there in down.times you know I mean we put up higher.levies when we need to tweak the levees.so we can do something in tax incentives.- what about the other aspects of this.type of tax.Senate we have a lot of movie companies.coming into the area what about the.image of Louisiana how much difference.does it make whether a film company.presents Louisiana in a positive light.or not so much.Melanie movies it's a popular industry.all around whether it's the elderly or.the young they always go and watch TV I.know I watch it with my grandmother old.movies we love it so for it to come down.here it gives us something to do and.then it interacts with the community as.well so if they can go the thing with.the incentive incentive is we shouldn't.have it for such a long period of time.it's like a marketing scheme get them to.come get them to flourish and then they.can stand on their own.that's what the incentive is for so do.we need it now yes and then we'll let it.grow and like you said in a couple years.they'll be stable by itself that we.don't need the incentive okay.so then do you think some of this.business would have come to Louisiana.even without the incentives Robert I see.you nodding your head there you got your.child you got the people you got just.the locations and everything why.shouldn't they come here okay Louisiana.is not exactly known for being a.high-wage state okay let's get that.let's get past that point and as far is.your original question I do not like.Louisiana being put up on screen or any.media as a in a negative manner I don't.like that I don't think that I should be.paying people money and giving them tax.incentives to portray my state in a.negative situation I don't like that.just doesn't go well with me okay that's.all the time we have for this portion of.our show when we return we'll be joined.by a panel of experts to further explore.lights camera Louisiana.[Music].welcome back to Louisiana public square.tonight we're discussing Louisiana's.film industry tax incentives joining us.now is our panel of experts Glen Petry.is best known as the writer director of.movies such as the man who came back.home front and Bella's heir the Cajun.his work has been translated into more.than two dozen languages in a 2006 book.film critic Roger Ebert named Petry a.legendary American regional director.sherry McConnell serves as executive.director of Louisiana entertainment a.division of Louisiana economic.development her office administers the.state's entertainment tax incentive.programs under her leadership.Louisiana's entertainment industry has.contributed approximately 1.5 billion.dollars to the economy between 2008 and.2010 dr. James Richardson is the john.ray alumni professor of economics in the.College of Business Administration at.LSU dr. Richardson has worked as a.forecaster for the Louisiana revenue.estimating conference since 1987 and has.supervised studies on various aspects of.the state budget patrick Mulhern is the.director of studio operations at the.Celtic Media Center in Baton Rouge the.center is the first and largest design.built studio facility operating in.Louisiana Mulhern is also the current.president of the Louisiana industry for.film and entertainment trade association.Wendell I believe you had a question for.our panel well I did and this could be.answered by whomever many people have.told me that there's in the industry out.there a lot of times they tend to bring.in actors from the other states other.than Louisiana and Louisiana is noted.actually for having a lot of little.theatres very good one right here in.Baton Rouge and produces a lot of good.actors and what I was wondering is that.the state of Louisiana have some sort of.layers on.between the middle theatres and the.movie industry well I'll try to answer.that for you I mean the state doesn't.have per say it's someone specific to be.a liaison between the little theaters or.the actors and and the productions that.coming in but I can tell you that a lot.of businesses have have sprouted up that.offer those services so so we like that.those are those entrepreneurs out there.additionally we have meetup groups in.every area of the state that provide.those opportunities to introduce the.actors and the aspiring actors to the.industry and our website continues to be.the go-to source and a resource for.those folks that are looking to connect.to the industry so there's no one in the.office that's specific to that but it's.all of our jobs to make that happen.Ronald I know you had a question for the.panel I know I'm getting a lot of people.to film movies in the state of Louisiana.the taxes they charge to it stays here.in the state of Louisiana they charge.he's asking about the revenue how do we.make sure that the dollars that we are.losing perhaps in opportunities with.regard to tax revenue how do we make.sure that the money as a result of these.productions stay in the States.well first understand that only tax.credits are given on money that's spent.in the state that's the law and so.nobody gets a single tax credit unless.they've spent the money first and that.is verified by a CPA done audit so the.money has to be stinky spent here before.they're ever given a tax credit you.don't get the money upfront you have to.spend the money first so that's verified.by a state audit as far as then those.tax credits going elsewhere of course.they're only usable for someone who has.a tax liability unless of course you.transfer them to someone who does so.ultimately that credit is benefiting a.Louisiana direct.so do you perceive I'll ask each of you.are giving you each of you an.opportunity to answer the question so.far do you think it's been worth the.bang for for the buck you know that's a.question that that's that's a choice I.mean we are you know subsidizing the.film industry and it's it's is succeeded.by I think anyone streams just how much.production I mean you'd look back a few.years ago I don't think anybody was.ready to believe they'd be that many.films coming to Louisiana because they.weren't coming before I mean I've been.making films in this state for 30 years.and back in the day we could sit around.a table the people were actually making.movies here it didn't happen you'd get.one or two Hollywood movies a year now.you can't drive down the street without.running into a production it's really.succeeded the question on is that good.for the state is it something that.everybody has to answer for themselves I.mean I think it is it's bringing in.good-paying jobs it's bringing in a lot.of benefits that are not direct to the.to the jobs but it's it's putting.Louisiana up on the screen it's making.us known for something besides you know.industries that may employ a lot of.people but are polluting here's one that.makes people laugh.makes people smile make people cry in.the theater it's there are a lot of.intangibles that go with it it's.bringing people there's in migration.from other places you know you have.people moving everything that I talked.to the the union rep in New Orleans and.he and he's complaining to get people.moving to Louisiana and pretending to be.Louisianians because they want to work.here you know so they're claiming that.they've lived you know I had an uncle.who used to live here so I'm you know.this is my home state now you know we.need those drawers I mean if we don't.want the Youngs you know we're having.trouble with education and funding.education but if we don't want those.college students when they got out of.school to move to someplace else where.there's more opportunity and more varied.opportunity and more sense of glamour to.the life there.and that's those are things the film.industry does again is it worth it.that's for each person to decide but.it's you know it's it's dollars and.cents and yet it's again more than.dollars and cents sure well I mean.certainly I believe that it's a it is.well worth the money spent it's an.expensive program you know but it's an.investment and so it's how do we make.sure that there's a return on the.investment that's the key so it's not.just about attracting outside production.and allowing Hollywood to come in and.make movies and then leave but hoping.that not only will they stay which many.many of them do again 50 percent of the.movies made in Louisiana now are by.Louisiana companies so often it's a way.to introduce the industry to the state.and when they get here they fall in love.and it's an easy sell once they get here.and so a lot of them stay it's a great.quality of life and we have a lot of.people staying but we believe that our.focus is on growing an indigenous.industry in fact that's our mandate is.to grow a sustainable indigenous.industry so how do we use the incentives.in the short term to grow a an.indigenous industry for the long term.and at some point will we be self.sustainable and and we believe the only.way to do that is to focus on growing.our native talent and that's where we.think we have a competitive advantage.we're the most talented culture in the.world and if we can focus on bringing.that business acumen to that talent and.making our own filmmakers so that Glenn.Petry is not the only one making movies.that's from Louisiana but that we're.creating filmmakers here then then it.won't be about attracting Hollywood but.by keeping our talent here so I think we.have to think of it as an investment.it's a loss leader and while the state.it's a cost to the state as far as.revenues in and revenues out clearly.local governments get it's all positive.that they're getting a lot of tax.benefit and a lot of revenue so there.are many ways to look at it clearly it's.a it's a wonderful opportunity for the.entire state there isn't an.the state that isn't impacted by the.industry it is environmentally friendly.it has put us at the top of the list.which is nice for a change so we think.it's a nice fit but also we have a very.holistic approach it's not just about.film it's also about music it's also.about live performance it's also about.interactive digital media so so our.approach is very holistic we're.attracting industries that are playing.in all of those sectors and and it's.working it's clearly working ok dr..Richardson yes I guess I was brought her.to be the negative side of the story but.I think as sherry was saying there is a.plus and a minus on the plus side.there's no doubt it's been an incredibly.successful incentive program in terms of.attracting the film industry and that.has been copied by other states they.want to do it and but then what they.realize is it costs something it's not.free and when we were saying on the.interview I had with the reporter from.LPB and I indicated that look over the.last three years we've averaged 145.million dollars a year in credits and.what that means is that we you and me.and everybody else in this room put.their money together and we sent them to.check four hundred forty five million.dollars it's our money now what do we.get in return for that well we got jobs.we had some jobs eight thousand jobs.that means we paid twenty-five thousand.dollars each for those jobs.approximately well that's and you.understand why that brought people here.we paid we got back in terms of revenue.about twenty million dollars 22 million.dollars a year from that so that was the.trade-off now the thing it's how do you.get to a break-even point well the only.the way you have it come down most.impossible to do that because the.incentive program is not something.indigenous to Louisiana.it can be copied in every state in the.Union and it has been so that means that.we're going to be competing forever with.this incentive program it's not going to.go away.and and indeed the other thing we have.done and this is one of the elements if.once you start a program you better be.sure you'd like it because it's gonna be.there because what we've done is we've.give them companies New Orleans Baton.Rouge Schreiber we've given them in the.incentive to make major investments and.those investments are going to be good.as long as films keep coming to be here.and that ascent is a major part of the.attraction it's gonna be very difficult.to to back away from it now.the question is how can we possibly get.to the point where we really don't have.to the incentive and from my perspective.I don't see that as a that's something.that's gonna happen I think that's gonna.be we're gonna every year we're going to.renew those or every four years or.however long we write them for it can be.renewed and because one it has been.successful in terms of bringing jobs.it's not been successful in terms of.being a break-even it's not a breaking.program and I think it's very difficult.to see how it ever will be a breaking.program ok mr. O'Hern um I heard an.interesting staff the other day that.just absolutely floored me in 2010 the.average film union job in Louisiana paid.sixty eight thousand dollars a year.that's that's pretty good that's I don't.know many industries that have an.average salary of sixty eight thousand.dollars a year and Louisiana is third in.the nation in film production it's nice.to be at the top of the list or.something positive for a change and on.top of that I think that Louisiana is.finally the head of the curve on.something you know this is a state that.needs to diversify its economy we've.relied on one or two industries for far.too long and when you start looking.about the future of what the future.holds for different industries it's hard.to say what the future is for oil and.gas however if you look at film and.entertainment the thirst for American.content is not going to go away in fact.it's only going to grow we all know how.cheap it is to get a TV these days and.the developing world is picking up iPads.and iPhones and any way to view American.content and so that demand for content.is only going to grow it's not going to.go away.so we're ahead of the curve and you know.to speak to the point about where does.that money go you know you can't view it.as as just money that's not coming into.the state treasury I mean I don't know.who likes income tax but of course you.know these are used to offset income tax.but what's better than that is that this.is money that's going into local coffers.it's going into the coffers of East.Baton Rouge Parish Orleans Parish Caddo.Parish Lafayette and what's so great.about what Sherry's office has done is.they made sure it's a statewide industry.you have production in Alexandria now.you have production in Monroe you have a.show in Slidell right now and and of.course in the New Orleans of Baton Rouge.it's it's amazing what it's doing for.our image it's so hard to put a price.tag on what it's doing for our image and.and and the future possibilities um the.studio that we have here in town the.Celtic Media Center played host to.Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2.or earlier this year we had people from.as far away as France come to try to see.what was going on again they just wanted.to take a peek they made a special trip.to Louisiana just to see where that was.going on and not only that they're.staying in hotels they are spending.money it's hard to measure there's a lot.that falls outside what's measured in a.production budget every time Sandra.Bullock buys a house every time Nicolas.Cage gets arrested that's money that's.going in there that's not getting that's.not getting measured and so it is so.hard to put a price tag on it I won't.disagree with dr. Richardson at all I do.think that it's hard to look at it as a.positive ROI on the state treasury but.what you have to look at is bigger.picture longer term because again we're.investing in our future it's more like.putting money in an IRA you don't want.to pull out now you don't want to pull.back even just because times are tough.you keep saving for retirement and this.state has got to save for its retirement.in its future in an industry that will.be around 50 years from now Lindsey it's.only 35% came about word that number.from for the incentives the positive.incentives time to move the movie.industry here before your early adopter.wouldn't it seem right that our antennas.would have been lower until competition.came around they were yeah okay what.were they written well I think they.originally started at 20% we follow 20.5.originally they're 2015 yeah and if you.want to blame somebody blame Canada.you're the ones who came up with the.idea that's so interesting south of the.day you know there was a film industry.in Louisiana before incentives and in.the 90s there were certain years you'd.have about 20 major feature film shot.here but when you got to 2001 it was.hard to name when I think we reduced a.goose egg that zero well if you look at.what happened in the late 90s Canada.came up with an incentive and so all.those runaway productions that were.leaving California started go up to.Canada we copied Canada in a sense but.we did it better and by you know 2000 by.2002 we'd actually started to pull you.know when we live in sin schema in 2002.we'd actually started pool productions.in by 2010 if I'm not mistaken I think.they had 125 you know major productions.that file for tax incentives so that's.impressive to go from 2225 in less than.10 years quick to follow dr. Richardson.as an economist you understand the.principle of positive incentives to move.people to act have y'all looked at the.negative incentives to keep people from.coming at what level can these two lines.cross and that could be the incentive.the Sweden say- soon I've keep him who.from coming.you know the incentives where we lower.the incentives but we don't lose any.business okay I think I go back answer.the question in full I why the.incentives went up is because you had.competition interstate competition and.this is what's going to happen in the.future.if somebody else will come - okay we're.gonna make that incentive fifty percent.you will quickly have to either follow.suit.or we have to say well wait a minute you.don't need that because look we have all.these production facilities here we have.all this training here we have all this.industry that we are developed so you.don't you won't have that in Georgia or.you won't have that in Michigan or you.don't have that into mother state but if.they make that and send big enough.either we follow suit are we loose nice.and recessive a recession right yeah but.all states are going after the same.thing we're going after but the money's.not there for the swells not no no it's.not necessarily IRR but many states are.seeing this as an element we'll get this.how we get industry here for the same.reason we are for the same reason we are.as a way of trying to build something up.now we have the first shot at it we made.the first move and the question is okay.how do we keep it and are we able to at.some point lower that and Simpson okay.wait a minute they really don't need 35%.30 is enough yeah they'll keep coming.Glenn what has been your experience.before and after the tax incentive was.off you know one thing that figures into.this is there's a certain critical mass.that that that you that we didn't use to.have and we have now because if you're.only getting a handful of productions a.year not only are you only getting the.handful where they're coming here and.they're having to bring in all their.actors because they're no local casting.directors to connect into the local.talent and they're having to bring in.all their crew and they're having to.bring in all the trucks because the.trucks aren't here because it can't be.busy when you get a certain level which.through the efforts of these guys we.have now you want to rent the trucks the.trucks are here and if you don't like.this vendor there's another one you know.down the street and if you want it you.know Panavision cameras I mean you can.get them in Louisiana there's a film a.film lab film labs are closing all over.the country because people are switching.to digital we got a film lab that opened.in Louisiana and last.please I mean we have a lot of things.that again lower the cost you know when.I wear my producers hat and you know I'm.looking at okay the last picture we did.do we ship the film this was a.co-production with France so we shipped.the film back to Paris or do we process.here well it was a no-brainer we process.in Louisiana I meant those dollars.stayed here you know do we hire do we.bring in the sound man from France that.did you know they want oh no we got all.these sound people here because they're.here because there's that many.productions because they're making 68.thousand dollars a year and can live.where they want to live so you know.lowering the incentives can you tweak.sure but you do indeed have to respond.to the competition and it's not just the.other for the United States it's also.other countries be it Canada obviously I.feel about government picking winners.and losers with these tax breaks.companies who've been in Louisiana long.time family-owned businesses that don't.have the opportunity and so basically.government saying all industry movie.industries these are going to be the.future these are going to be the winners.and we're going to stand behind those.companies is that an abdication of.family-owned businesses and other.businesses in Louisiana well I have a.family on film business I'm the wrong.guy to ask on that with subsidies we're.here before the subsidies and you know.they go away we'll still be here but.that's a rare example and we don't hire.them I mean we were making a movie every.three or four years dr. Richardson no I.think every state subsidized something.that's just what it is if we like it or.not uh we I don't think when they chose.the film industry they had any idea it.was going to be quite that successful it.just it turned out to be a lot more.successful than they ever thought and.that's a good thing it's not a bad it's.a it's a good thing except what cost us.take more money go state a lot more.money and then they thought probably.every business looks for the brakes if.the tax breaks breaks and regulatory.rules they offer the brakes this one I.think stands down a little bit more than.any others the other industries as I.said this is a credit this this is the.nicest form of an incentive I the state.of Louisiana write you a check give it.to you and you could any jewelers you.get to take that away from your other.expenses so your expenses are really not.hundred percent your expenses are some.much thirty sixty five percent so it's.much smaller CJ had a question yes I'm.going a different direction with this.one.Oh how does the state justify giving.these film incentives at the same time.they're cutting funds in education it's.what twisting rates are going up because.we do need people to fill in these subs.that go behind the film industry but why.would you want someone from a school.where funds were cut and that its case.might be a little bit lower than from.schools that might be of a higher.quality.I think it's they never in terms of.looking at this first the first thing.you note is that say within the current.budget year which is what we're in we're.all facing a tight budget the credits.are already out there.you can't cut them they've been.obligated it's a contract now what we.could do is if we want to do away with.it we're talking about something you two.years or maybe even longer into the.future where people are making contracts.so this is a contract we have we can't.get the certified credits we now have on.the books they're there so we can't cut.those and say okay we're going to take.that money and give to education that's.not an option.so our options are very simple is we.have to think about this when the long.term respective amount of short term.budgetary perspective we have to decide.if it's a program we like if we want to.somehow make it work in the future and I.think the other thing.that sherry said that we have not really.talked about a great deal is that you.have four credits the film industry is.by far the most noticeable and the.largest but you also have the digital.media industry which is could be a.growth area get a certain very.attractive to younger people trying to.get the population back up in this day.that's the digital yeah the sound.industry and then you had the live.production industry and the live.production industry if they work they.have to bring people in from outside the.state for tourists because we are a big.enough market to fill the auditoriums.every night for six months so I think.those are the if I were looking at this.and trying to think about this at the.package I look at as a package is it.okay.it's a package that will make revenue.neutral we may never make the film.industry credit revenue neutral in fact.I don't think we will even took as a.package of those four and they all are.interrelated that's a possibility.that's what I would approach it but it's.not a short term but sure issue because.we've like it's a commitment we have.sherry do you have anything to add to.that well so many things number one I.I'd like to say that there are other.states that offer more generous tax.credits and they haven't come close to.us yet and I think that's because we're.not like other states this is ours to.own we own this industry and it's.because we have a unique culture that is.very very attractive to the creative.industries and that's why it's worth the.investment for us but there are other.states that are trying to do the same.thing and they'll never be able to do it.so having said that I mean well even.then even and I think there's a you know.the we I suggest that our our natural.creative talent is our greatest.renewable natural resource and so if we.think of it as a natural resource and we.add value to it and we export it just.like we do sugarcane and oil and gas.then perhaps we have a sustainable.industry where we've got a lot to do to.get there.but but we're on our way I do think we.are on our way so having said that I.I do think that the interest the state.needs to think about the long-term and.and how are we going to in fact make.sure that there is a return on that.investment and and I I agree with dr..Richardson's clearly there is a there's.a convergence in the industry and this.holistic package that we offer nobody.else offers that I can tell you some.people have film some people have sound.recording but nobody has all four and.let me give you an example.Patrick was actually here representing.Celtic but Lambton Enoch was going to be.here representing moon boombots studios.we feel like they're a poster child of.exactly what we hope to see happen in.the state and that is the local talent.gentleman by the name of Bill Joyce who.started as a children's authors dun.Rolie Polie Olie and Meet the Robinsons.all that is a great animator now he's.created an animation studio.well that animation studio which is.taking advantage of the film incentive.program is also now developing an iPhone.an iPad app taking advantage of our.interactive tax credit and now they are.doing that and they are going to be.going on the road of possibly taking.advantage of the live performance tax.credit so that there's a company that.has grown up around a great local.Louisiana talent and it will be a.catalyst for continued growth they have.now have over 35 animators in Shreveport.in a studio that's like walking into.Pixar it's amazing and it's homegrown.Louisiana stuff so we are building a.local indigenous industry but it's.around our local talent and and so even.if it means that some of these people.are coming in from out of state and we.make them Louisianans or we introduce.them to Louisiana talent I think it is.an opportunity that the state have.recognizes to be a great one and it's.uniquely ours.it's uniquely ours indeed might catch.word for the next ever the government.Governor Jindal our governor's I don't.like that the population growing so my.said we gotta get our congressional.district back and we need we don't we.can't reproduce that fast we need to.have other people come from outside the.state that's what you need and that's.the best I could do that's all people.all the time LSU win a national.championship because it kept it's better.best athletes here in the state you know.and then it reached the point where it.was stealing the best athletes out of.other states that's not yours that we're.stealing we're pulling the men find.attractive we're attracting them yes so.it's the same kind of concept with this.you've got to get people a reason to.stay you got to give them a real.opportunities in a reason to come yeah.I'm a reason to come back one thing I'd.like to add is you know as much as it.tears all of us up to see those cuts in.education it's probably wrong to look at.okay the money is going into film.instead of going in into education.because because a friend here said you.know every state is giving out.incentives so the choice is I mean do we.give hundreds of million dollars to get.you know one German company to come and.put a car plant or do we spread those.hundreds of million dollars and get you.know whole raft of you know.entrepreneurs spread throughout the.state not in one location diversified.enough and diffuse enough that you know.one decision made back in Stuttgart.Germany can't shut it all down and it's.gone that's another good point you can't.easily outsource these jobs and you.can't take the Curious Case of Benjamin.buttons put it in Bangalore India and.expect the same results these are these.are jobs that have to stay here in the.US in order for them to work have you.ever been approached by a production.company and said we'd love to come to.Louisiana 30% is good but we really want.40% knowing that they're out there.shopping that same thing around other.states you ever feel that competition to.raise it from 30 to 40.I mean clearly there was an argument.made in oh nine to do just that that you.know Georgia was was nipping at our.heels and they had.35% incentive I will tell you that.clearly there are companies out there.that are shopping tax credits and go.from state to state and they have no.commitment to Louisiana or whatever.state they land in but it hasn't.we're not anxious necessarily for to up.the credit I doubt seriously we'll see.that happen and we've managed to.maintain our lead substantially and.continue to add to it and what we find.the producers like is stability they.love our workforce they love our.infrastructure we've built an ecosystem.around this industry now and they know.what they're gonna get when they're here.and plus they can't get gumbo in.Michigan you know and and I got to tell.you they love the creative culture of.this state and many of them if aren't.buying second homes are buying first.homes and we've got many entrepreneurs.who came here because the tax incentives.brought them here but stayed because.they fell in love in cost of living.Baton Rouge is one half of New York City.it's about two-thirds of what Ellie is.that's our secret weapon no matter what.something else is offering we've always.got a cost of living on our side and.what about the elimination of the tax.credit for the construction of movie.sets what impact has that had well you.know there was an infrastructure tax.credit it caused us some problems but it.certainly helped us build real.infrastructure and and Celtic is a.perfect example of that so we have built.the bricks and mortar infrastructure.around the industry and we think we've.got an adequate supply of studio space I.would like to see any new infrastructure.be market driven instead of tax credit.driven and and we think we've built an.industry and a market enough to - any.infrastructure that wants to grow up.around it it's because they've got a.market to service and we'll say just.recently but I think it's 10,000 square.foot costume rental house and 10,000.square feet full of costumes open in New.Orleans and they got no tax incentives.to do that they had missed the boat on.the infrastructure but there's enough.business that those things are those.things are happening on their own.so it's a testament to the success of.the program more than most of our.business is 20 million-dollar features.in under so the twilights and so forth.are they're they're they're popular and.and glamorous but the fact is our niche.market is 20 million dollar features and.under and most of them are ten million.dollars in under and ninety five percent.of every dollar of that budget is spent.in the state of Louisiana so that's.because they can because you can make a.movie in this state from soup to nuts.there isn't anything you can't do in the.state to make a movie now and and so.those goods and services that.infrastructure has grown up around it.interesting industry came down to show.Matt hi because they filmed one of the.basketball movies I'm not sure which one.in our gym and I know for a fact that.sparked the imagination of our students.because they went and everybody got to.go sit in the stands and watch them make.the movie so when they filmed down here.you also have people watch them do it.and say hey this could be a new avenue.for me to go in so it's not only economy.and money and money and money it's the.fact that you're getting positive.attraction to Louisiana outside of okay.yeah we have great gumbo but look we.have you know great movies coming here.and it's not the negative things that it.used to be so it's not just money it's a.positive aspect that's being brought and.I love that.if since their or lose since there is.Louisiana talent here how can someone.find you to you maybe become employed or.to show off their talents well - you.know our website Louisiana Entertainment.gov will connect you to a lot of.production so any production that's.going on is is listed there and often is.just about reaching out I mean one of.the nice things is you can get in on the.ground floor here and and and you know.if you work hard you've got an.opportunity in this industry so.certainly I would suggest going there.maybe Glen has some ideas as far he's a.man that makes movies so I mean people.find you I mean our workforce I mean.normally we're just a few people and.then we go into production and depending.on the production will if it's a.documentary there may be 20 people.working if it's a feature film there may.be 120 people working plus the cast and.I mean folks follow the websites they.find us I mean not a day goes by that I.don't open my email and there's resumes.and they want to come and they want to.intern and they want to work and then.they're offering services and you know.they don't hear from us for four weeks.or months and but then we go into.production and we've tracked down all.those people and say you know where does.that picture your promise to sender you.know what size truck you had or what is.it because you know they do when you.need the thing about movies is putting.one together is is like dragging the.biggest weight you can imagine behind.you forever forever and you're never.gonna get there you're never gonna get.it and one day it goes whoosh and the.financings there and all of a sudden the.cast is there and then you're on the set.and they're people you don't even know.what they all do but they're all you.know working and everybody's working.together to put this dream together okay.thanks everybody we've run out of time.for our

They are also available for free at various locations around the state.Nine states have no tax on personal income, so there is no need to fill out a state tax return unless you are a business owner.
