Both Suna and Rosenbluth said they have had to turn away productions because their studios are all booked. And both operations are planning expansions to add studio space.
The industry has also provided a shot in the arm to businesses that service production companies - everything from restaurants to paint stores.
"When the movie production studios are busy, we benefit from it," said Charles Sommer, president of Public Service Truck Renting in Long Island City.
Matt Dienstag, principal of Lenoble Lumber, said his company recently moved its headquarters from Manhattan to Long Island City to better service the industry.
"Having a thriving film and television industry is really important - not only to Queens, but for all of the city," he said.
Lights, camera, more action at city studios
Wow, who would have thought that industry would be moving back to Queens? I guess the tax incentives didn't hurt. Maybe this should have been the focus instead of tax breaks to millionaire developers to provide us with luxury condos that we don't need.
