Below is a written excerpt of Chair Fletcher’s recorded remarks.
“Creating an independent, regional film office will help bring an infusion of new dollars into our local economy,” said Chair Fletcher. “The Office will market our region to filmmakers and studios and help to generate good-paying jobs as camera operators, stage-hands, lighting technicians, and set builders. Bringing more films to San Diego will support local restaurants, hotels, catering companies. It will also help to expand the influence of our local arts community.”
