“I would hope that government officials work with the unions to create better incentives to keep production jobs here in the U.S. We have the best pool of crew talent and the best equipment. Plus, people here really need the work.”
Alex Munoz, independent TV/film director, Los Angeles
“Shooting outside the U.S. is beneficial. Lower costs allow more shows to be produced, and companies can spend more on improving the quality of actors, sets, effects and other aspects that make a show better overall.”
Jennifer Wendt, research industry specialist, First Marketing, Orlando, Fla.
