In Hollywood, there is nothing they hate more than “runaway production,” film and TV work that is done in states far from the mother guilds, unions and working folks who make that the industry’s home base. All these states offering giveaways to lure studio’s into filming in Georgia, Louisiana, New Mexico and Florida? A nuisance, especially to legislators seeking to keep all that payroll, infrastructure and tax money at home.
So go ahead, take your state in the last century with anti civil rights legislation. You just gave them an excuse to offer production companies a way back in the door at home.
