.@Bravoandy And since you mentioned Treme: David Simon responds: " in our four years filming there, beyond all the money spent on employing the arts community in the depiction of New Orleans -- three and a half million in music copyright payments alone -- the production and the producers left behind a half million dollars in donated charity funds to Roots of Music, Common Ground, the New Orleans Musicians Clinic, the Tipitina Foundation and other local charities.
We received the legislated tax incentives that all film productions receive when they do production in Louisiana. We did not ask for or lobby for a penny beyond what the state was offering to all film productions."
