Since it's near and dear to our hearts and our local pocket-books, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the current future of film and television (along with other parts of our creative industries) within our TN government. If you have not taken the time to write your local legislators to voice your concerns and ask for their support, please do so immediately.
The following link is being reposted from AFFT's blog site as an up-to-date resource on the battle being waged in our legislator. Part of a talent's job when running a successful business is to know what laws will directly effect their business and to know which legislators are supporting those laws at the end of the day. Do you know who is on your side or who might be threatening your career's future?
