My name is Cindy Gengras, and I’ve been fortunate to be a working member of the Boston film community for the past 25 years. I’m a producer/production manager working on commercials, photo shoots, and mixed media projects. I love what I do, and it puts a smile on my face every work morning when I wake up. We work very hard and, yes, there are some days that are tougher to face than others….but, in the end, it’s all good in so many ways.
Our business touches so many aspects of the Massachusetts economy that if we made a film to cover it all, you’d be watching something akin to the seven-part John Adams mini-series. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do in life — this is it! — and it all came together here in Massachusetts.
Film work in this state has made so much possible for our family — my husband, son, and myself — including owning a home and putting our son through college. The film tax incentive has effected a monumental change in the Massachusetts film industry; it touches and enhances so many people and businesses of every shape and size. Let’s keep moving in THIS direction.
