I have been working in the film industry for 12 years now. I work wherever the work will take me. When work does take those of us in the industry away from home, it not only takes us away from our families and homes, but it also takes our tax dollars, and any money that productions spend when filming. I am also a business owner in New England. I own a salon and have employed stylists who have made a lot of money due to the film industry. Actors, producers, and traveling crew members need cuts and color while in town as well as dinner, lodging travel, etc.
