I am Frans Weterrings, owner of Red Herring MPL, Inc. and Red Sky Studios, father, husband, and Massachusetts resident. As a small business owner, I pay rent, insurance, employees, electricity, and taxes for my company. I also work on films, commercials, and television shows and live in Medfield, MA. I chose to live and start a company here instead of California because Massachusetts has a great incentive and I could support my family.
I fail to understand how anyone would not see the that film tax incentive is working. If you are one of the Massachusetts towns that has had the chance to be featured in any shoot, you see the benefits. Everyone wants to talk about the money that leaves, but how about the millions that are invested in our towns and businesses?
