NC has record-breaking year for film, TV, but don’t expect repeat

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The director of the North Carolina Film Office says the state’s film industry hit record-breaking numbers the past two years, but that’s unlikely to repeat in 2013.

In 2011, North Carolina hit it big with “The Hunger Games,” based on books with a huge following. This year’s record is courtesy of the big-budget “Iron Man 3.”

NC Film Office Director Aaron Syrett says the state’s main market is a film that costs $10 million to $50 million, such as “Safe Haven,” based on a Nicholas Sparks’ book.

Year-end projections show television and film had direct in-state spending of more than $376 million in 2012 and created more than 4,100 crew positions. That beat the previous records, set in 2011, of $220 million in spending and 3,300 crew positions.
