Our former chair of Government Affairs, George Riddell, continues to keep a vigilant eye on how government policy affects our industry. Perhaps the most vital aspect is when jobs and the broader economy are threatened.
George most recently pointed out our lack of competitive incentives to bring film work to Washington. This month his cry is more dire: Not only are 100% of the incentives not scheduled for renewal. but the Washington State Film Office itself will be closed if funding is not approved by our legislature.
Anybody who works in advertising, corporate marketing, public relations, local media, or anybody with an interest in maintaining a healthy creative ecosystem in Washington should be alarmed.
