Some tidbits of the deal. [In reply to] Can't Post

 The Government will introduce legislation tomorrow to clarify the distinction between independent contractors and employees as it relates to the film industry only.
"This will guarantee the movies are made in New Zealand," Mr Key said. Tax rebates will also be changed for Warner Bros, which will mean up to an extra US$7.5m per movie for Warner Bros, subject to the success of the movies.

Now bring on the movie about "that business with the dragon"! CoolCoolCoolCoolCool

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

That sounds really amazing [In reply to] Can't Post

Good that the employee/contractor thing is limited to the film industry only.

The tax breaks seem to be something that are due to what the film brings to the country- if the film is successful, better for country/tourism, I would guess?

WB could really be a great partner in helping the film industry of NZ grow.


Wow, I have goosebumps from this news! I wish more people were up on my friend's list so I can jump around with more people :D

Big sigh of relief [In reply to] Can't Post

I always thought WB was one of the more respectable film studios. This reinforces that belief. Glad to see a deal was worked out that benefits both parties.

I missed the announcement because I was too busy visiting TheOneRing.net [In reply to] Can't Post

So I log on to theonering.net and see that there's no major news yet, and start browsing the forums. I've been browsing through some older threads on the forum for about an hour and as I read through one of them I started to see posts that seemed to indicate a meeting was going on and an announcement was imminent. Then I get to the posts about TH staying in NZ and I'm like wait, that news wasn't on the front page... it happened while I was reading the earlier threads! I can't believe a huge announcement happens on this website right under my nose! Oh and by the way I'm very happy that it's staying in NZ.
