Commenting on the new Board, Phil Dixson remarked, ?The value of our organization has always been its ability to function as a true non-biased cross-section of our industry. The Board represents many of the key components of New Yorks production/post-production community, from Unions to Guilds, creative and below-the-line support services, studios and manufacturers. Our common bond is a desire to make NYC the most attractive and cooperative place in the world to create feature films, TV programming, commercials and the entire range of media. To this end we have developed highly effective relationships with both The Governors and the Mayors Offices For Film and Television development. We have also helped to make substantial inroads with the NY State Government in Albany on a number of tax-related issues. We are committed to serving as a meaningful forum for effective dialogues about our industry.
