It had a direct in-state spend of more than $18 million while creating 982 job opportunities, including approximately 300 well-paying crew positions for the state’s highly-trained film professional work force. Masterminds was one of 50 productions that year which combined accounted for $316 million being spent in North Carolina and more than 19,000 job opportunities being offered with production taking place in more than one-third of the state’s counties.
