NY Gubernatorial Candidate Will Cut All VFX Subsidies If Elected

New York State Republican gubernatorial candidate will cut all film (including VFX) related subsidies if elected.

“We’ll eliminate most of the $1.7 billion in business tax credits, starting with the $420 million New York Film Tax Credit,” said Astorino, who has blasted the tax subsidies as corporate welfare.

Michael Scott is an LA-based compositor who was hit by a car a few days ago. He frequently posts on Twitter as Dorkman Scott (you may be familiar with his YouTube light sabre fight from several years ago) and frequently comments on VFX related matters. His condition is very serious, and his friends have set up a fundraiser where people can help to pay some of his medical bills.
