It seems many of you (not just NYer's) realize the correctness of an equitable fee structure. Some will say a 10,000 permit fee for a large studio picture will scare them away. I know not, as 10,000 is only 0.01% of a 100 million budget, and studios will easily pay that to have "Gotham" as the background. The other permit fees are designed to be affordable for the production given the budget levels. The graduated fee structure supports low budget indie films and student films that are the future of the industry. The mayor and the commissioner need to realize the necessity of supporting the development of the future by facilitating low budget and student productions with appropriate permit fees.
