My name is Rick Burtt. I’m privileged to have been in the entertainment industry for the last 30 years, as a musician/management, a director, and an actor. It is important to keep momentum of high budget Hollywood films being shot in Massachusetts. There is an incredible impact that the tax incentive has had for local cast and crew, in lighting, sound, wardrobe, make-up, catering, and casting. Also even more importantly money spent in every area of local businesses, and the taxes spent on that money by those businesses and workers. The film tax incentive should not be removed, it makes for common sense to have this flow of revenue continue to come to our state, and benefit all.
