Northern California Rally for Film Incentives

June 13, 2014 in Career Services, E'vents by David Whitmer

What: Northern California Rally for Film Incentives
Where: Fairmont Hotel | 950 Mason St, San Francisco, CA 94108
When: Saturday, June 14th, 2014 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

I wanted to take a brief moment to mention, as I’m sure you already know, that this Saturday morning is the Bay Area Rally For California Incentives ( Bill AB1839).  As we all know, production has left California and we need to bring it home!  The Rally is free, there will be live entertainment, guest speakers from in front of and behind the camera, lots of free “give-aways” and much more – and it’s at the Fairmont. I just wanted to remind you of this event, God knows we could use much, much more production in the Bay Area.
