Its tough to compete when the playing field is not level. Strong MN film incentives will bring back a booming industry.

Netflix will spend $15 billion on content in 2019. A MN film tax credit would bring some here to MN. Kudos to NM for landing these high paid jobs. Netflix buying Albuquerque Studios
