This is a great piece by someone who benefits from incentives, but dislikes them, nonetheless:

We've talked to every stakeholder in the past three years. Billions are being made outsourcing these jobs and those that are getting what work there is are understandably reluctant to be active in a grassroots leadership that is pro youth and pro California and pro LA if they believe they will be punished for their leadership.

We've talked to every stakeholder in the past three years. Billions are being made outsourcing these jobs and those that are getting what work there is are understandably reluctant to be active in a grassroots leadership that is pro youth and pro California and pro LA if they believe they will be punished for their leadership. I am good friends with Tim McHugh who has participated in a panel with Bring Hollywood Home at the LA Latino International Film Festival in 2011 at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. Tim and FTAC worked very hard to stop runaway production with legal challenges while according to Tim there was no support from the California Film Commission for the work they were doing. So if there has been massive failure for 2 and a half decades does everyone give up? Of course not. What if leaders had given up on the civil rights movement? We would not have the leadership we have today in America. We aren't giving up. Our concerts have raised awareness of runaway production and now we are endorsing candidates and having an impact on the LA City Elections on March 5th, 2013. So get involved. sharonhardeejimenez@gmail put your skepticism to work it's healthy to be skeptical of any leadership in Hollywood. Thanks for taking the time to check us out.

As a motion picture caterer, my husband and I survived runaway production over the years, bringing it home is something I wish we had working for us! yes! bring it home! keeps our spouse working local! and keep our families together!

Hey, we need jobs in other states, too. However, we should end economic incentives to "job creators" that pit one state or community against another. These incentives usually result in no economic gain for the community. (Then) Congressman Bernie Sanders' "Distorting Subsidies Limitation Act of 1999" addressed this problem.

Odd, Marc Cherry's new series "Devious Maids" is being shot in Atlanta. We shot the pilot here.

Sad story. California is woefully non competitive with other states and countries while the leadership of The California Film Commission just can't figure out how to stop the outsourcing.

Perhaps we need a more effective, aggressive film commissioner. And we need to get ancillary industries involved.

Yes we need ancillary businesses involved and new independent leadership to take over where the failed leadership left off. We have a new Mayor Elect in Eric Garcetti and now the atmosphere is hopeful to www.bringhollywoodhome.org

Bring Hollywood Home www.bringhollywoodhome.org officially began in California three years ago on February 10, 2010. That same year in December of 2010 Film Works L.A. began their campaign to keep filming in California. With more than two decades of runaway production all of our efforts are necessary to stop the outsourcing of our jobs and find business and legislative solutions to stop runaway production. Glad to See Film Works L.A. on our page and hope Film Works L.A. will send out...
