My name is Mollie Grace and, for the past eight years, I have been lucky enough to work in the film industry. I spent six of those eight years in Boston, among the hardest-working, closest-knit community I have known.
The film industry in Massachusetts is more than an industry — it is a family. The relationships built with vendors and crew members are indescribable. As an assistant accountant, I have seen the same local vendors used again and again on productions. The film industry draws on all sectors of local business –lumber, lighting equipment, groceries, car rentals, apartment rentals, office space, clothing … you name it, we buy it. Not to mention the countless numbers of oysters and drinks purchased after a long day’s work. Without the Massachusetts film industry, many of these local businesses would lose a surplus of revenue.
