My name is Matt Bouldry, and I am a casting director in Massachusetts. In fact, I am specifically hired to cast only actors who live here.
For my work, I have hired hundreds of local people and given them taxable work. The film tax incentive is why I’m employed, and why all the people I have hired are employed in Massachusetts. My family is provided for because of the Massachusetts film tax incentive. This industry has been building up a base here for more than a decade. It’s not because of the glamour of the movie industry that we need the film tax incentive, it’s because it employs thousands and thousands of families in the Bay State.
