My name is Jamie Merz, and I am co-founder and owner of Good Natured Dog Productions.
I worked on my first film outside of college in 2008 in Worcester, MA, where I met my film family. I came from Ohio to Massachusetts to work in film, unlike many of my peers who left for LA or New York. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
I’ve risen through the ranks of production, purchased cars, rented apartments, and contributed to my adopted state in many ways, including starting a company here. None of this would have been remotely possible without the support the state gave to my industry of choice. The film tax incentive is a powerful piece of legislation and I urge you to fight to keep it going.
