Question by Seti: Why is film production and publicity so important to the Rhode Island government?
Have you noticed all the New England headlines lately? Why are Rhode Island government officials so anxious to receive more recognition as a place of television and film?
Is it honestly for more jobs?
Answer by elmorudyfrosty
rhode island wants to have more movies etc. there b/c it brings in a TON of money. movie people like filming there b/c it’s cheap. so…ri is trying to remind film studios about them. also, ri just passed some new laws about filming in ri that makes it easier for big studios to film here….this way they’re hoping to be the new canada…good place to film, cheap easy laws that allow filming without a lot of red tape. ri wants this b/c of the influx of people with large incomes (movie people) into the local economy. so overall good deal for everyone…and it neer hurts to remind people about ri in movies to increase tourism, which is another big money maker for ri.
