All of the money given to the arts and film industry will just eventually end up being used to purchase illegal drugs, thereby renewing the federal government's mandate to continue it's "wag the dog" war on drugs.

For example, when We Are Marshall was filmed in Atlanta, it injected around 45 million in liquidity into the city. The biggest recipients were day laborers for the non union work, restaurants and bars (film people drink a lot), actors, carpenters, and the lighting and rigging outfit out of lawrenceville.

No doubt that something like that can help a local economy. I guess my question would be...how long after the film is done being made do those jobs or the economic benefits last? In my book, a temporary input of $$ into an area< something that may be more long lasting.

it's not just one movie, however. that was just one part.

Atlanta, for example, has 99 project filming here this year. those jobs last all year.

it's hard for people not in the industry to grasp. you don't have a single employer, you bounce around, and that's considered employed.

That's because they don't work. Therefore they have the time.

:D I kid.

Exactly. And the ones who think and come up with practical ones are at the other end of the political spectrum.

Not true, as they also have to fund them efficiently in order for them to get made. Hippies invented special effects motion control and computer graphic interfaces.
