    • It’s very simple and very complicated at the same time, they look at the number of people who are brought to town for the movie and the number of days they are here, then they look at the average number dollars they spend a day per person for meals, lodging, etc. Adding the number of workers hired locally and the average pay per person, and they get the figures, anything over 670,000 rounds up to a Million, anything between 500,000 and 670,000 rounds down to half a million, and all of this is to say this is nothing more than an educated guess by me and them and you should be smart enough to know that.

      • I’m sure there is a detailed formula, including charts and tables and twenty-seven eight-by-ten color glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one that gives them the number. I want to see the formula and the pricing. I have always been skeptical of the numbers. The last film crew that was at the LEC they estimated some high numbers for economic impact, but most of the trucks I saw on location were from out of town or out of state. The numbers may have born some basis in reality, but the impact was not necessarily to Augusta.
