Saturday’s Park Record includes an article about Governor Herbert vetoing a Film Subsidy bill. Effectively Utah won’t be increasing the amount of subsidies that can be paid to film makers shooting in Utah. Yet, that’s not really the interesting part.
What I find interesting is that there wasn’t one mention of Park City Film Studios in the article — you know that 375,000 square foot project, at the edge of town, 20 years in the making, that will diversify the local economy.
No mention. No quotes. No references. No indication of how or if Governor Herbert’s veto impacts the studio. No details regarding whether the studio lobbied for the bill or why they couldn’t persuade the Governor. Nothing.
Sometimes what’s most interesting is what isn’t said.
