Hollywood Tax Credit Fight: Will California Finally Support Bloc

At the same time, the number of one-hour television productions has fallen by 64 percent, according to the Los Angeles Mayors Office.Feature feature film production has plummeted 56 percent since a peak in 1996, while television production has dropped 39 percent from a high in 2008. If we want to keep these jobs, we have to get in the game,said Yusef Robb, director of communications for the Los Angeles mayors office. Florida is not going to let its sunshine get taken away, Texas is not going to let its football get taken away and New York is not going to let the financial services industry get taken away, why should California allow other states to take the entertainment industry away? To make their case, the MPAA, the mayors office and their allies plan to focus on the threat to middle-class entertainment industry jobs. Its all about job creation and keeping our crew members working, and that filters down to all the small businesses that depend on a vibrant entertainment economy, Amy Lemisch, executive director of the California Film Commission, said. She noted that the current incentives are out-stripped by those offered in the United Kingdom, Louisiana or New York. Our program is more modest, but you dont want to give away more than you have to, Lemisch said. You want to make it competitive enough so it makes financial sense when producers realize they dont have to incur as much shipping and travel expenses. The threat to California jobs is real, but tax incentives remain controversial even among members of the entertainment industry. Scott Ross, co-founder of the visual effects house Digital Domain, notes that the current situation has become an arms race with no end in sight. Its one that he argues has devastated Californias post-production industry and forced workers to uproot their lives and families to work in cities such as Vancouver and London that offer richer incentives. <br>Source: Kim Kardashian href='; ></a>

Homeland Will Get "a Big Reset"

The head of the US network which broadcasts the CIA TV drama told a television conference about the huge knock-on effect Nicholas Brody's (Damian Lewis) exit would have on Homeland's next season, according to Variety. He said: "This season was pretty brilliant in its architecture... I thought it was very clever and audacious, what they set out for." David went on to say that Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) would be in a different homepage setting: "Obviously there's a big reset. This show is fundamentally about a field operative and we really haven't seen her much out in the field operating. "The likely plan for next year is that you will see her on the ground in a foreign capital doing her job. I haven't had much presented yet [from the Homeland creatives], and those guys are spending next week in Washington - they've got an incredible itinerary." The channel boss also said that TV was increasingly becoming a sought-after option for talented actors. He said: "Every actor is interested in working in TV right now. <br>Full story

Google Makes It Easier For Strangers To E-mail You

But some early reactions suggested the new change may make it too easy. "Oh god no.. Another reason to hate Google+," wrote Jeff Roberts, a reporter for tech blog GigaOM , on Twitter. "They turned it into a stalking tool." Others, like Chris Taylor of Mashable, said it looks like another attempt to push users to Google+, which, as a social network, has never presented a real challenge to Facebook, though Google has continued to integrate it into other, more popular, products like YouTube and, now, Gmail. "What (CEO Larry) Page and Google seem maddeningly unaware of is that site nobody can ever be forced into having a party," Taylor wrote. "That in fact, the forcing is what makes a party impossible." Google, clearly anticipating the privacy concerns, notes that users may limit the feature, or opt out of it entirely. <br>Source
