sz here is my cousin in Miami from a few years ago. this is his "day" job. archiving film. he is the guy in green

his love is doing local theater stuff and hosting film festivals.

if i had the funds, i would love to show a wide range of old films from 1960 to the mid 80's. do everything from old Westerns to Blacksplotation to old blockbusters to specific genere's.

old film festival? not that im aware of. i know one movie house in ballantyne showed some classics once in a blue moon.

my wife and i before kids saw A Touch of Evil at the Manor in Charlotte. To see an Orson Wells film on the big screen was awesome.

i would love to like an epic wkd. Show Ben Hur or Spartacus or Lawrence of Arabia and the next wkd show Dolemite or Blackula or Uptown Sat Night and the next show post apoc films. From Omega Man to A Boy and his dog.

Endless possibilities.

ahh. well, i would hope for local tv stations they have done that already.

maybe start here- http://www.ncfilm.com/

btw. one day over a cold beverage i can tell you about the time my cousin had to wear a wire because from his archiving he discovered mafia footage and it implicated a tv station down there. no joke.

i have a goal of finally finishing my screen play by July and get it into the hands of a producer. after that, roll the dice, say a prayer and see what happens.

ya know. i can seen both sides of the coin on the film incentive. yes it creates jobs that have people paying taxes.

the money flow back to another state is true as well.

so it comes down to how the state wants to view their ROI. if you look at it from tourism and PR and having locals work in a cool industry. thats good.

if you are looking at earmarked dollars and how tax credits get applied, i can see that argument too.

but the Gov isn't going to go for it. he talks up the film industry all the time so its good.
