New York City Thanks Residents for Supporting Local Film and Television Production in New PSA Campaign The Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting has unveiled a public service announcement featuring New Yorkers who work in the production industry in an effort to thank local residents for hosting film and television production in their neighborhood. The campaign also aims to educate New Yorkers about the importance of the industry and the residents who make their living working behind the scenes in film and television here. The campaign features local crew members – including a location manager, assistant director, and make-up artist – talking about their work experience in New York City. The campaign comes at a time when the City is experiencing an increase in production throughout the five boroughs. Currently there are seventeen primetime, episodic series based in New York City.
