WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — A grand opening is being held at a new post-production house in Wilmington whose owner hopes will let North Carolina's film industry compete even more with Hollywood.
The StarNews of Wilmington reported (http://bit.ly/Hl3S70) that opening will be held Sunday at Post 1200, located across the street from EUE/Screen Gems Studios. Owner Sam Kaufmann said the company will fill a gap left by a lack of local post-production businesses and allow studios to complete entire projects in Wilmington.
The chairwoman of the Wilmington Regional Film Commission's Board of Directors says post-production work can qualify for tax breaks under the state's incentive program. Film companies can claim a 25 percent tax credit up to $20 million on productions spending more than $250,000 in qualifying expenses.
