Film workers say a cloud of uncertainty has shrouded the province's film industry since the implementation of a new incentive program, forcing many workers to find employment elsewhere with no major projects on the horizon. Marc Almon, co-chairman of Screen Nova Scotia, says summer is normally a busy filming season for the province, but the fallout from the government's decision this spring to slash the film tax credit created uncertainty that may have dissuaded projects from coming.
