Action, Action, Action,

So much is happening right now and so much planned for 2022. It wasn’t long ago that productions paused and the path back to work was uncertain. Now, despite challenges from various setbacks with the pandemic, the state could not be busier. And it’s not just locations in the state that’s busy, our citizens as well. Georgia’s Drew Waters has a film upcoming called Desperate Riders starring alongside Trace Adkins and Tom Berenger. See more here. Also, Love Hurts, filmed mostly in Marietta will be out around Valentines Day. See more about this film here

Let’s get em in 2022!

Recent Coverage

Why Georgia is becoming the new U.S. film production capital - If you’ve ever stuck around until the end credits of a major movie or TV show, then you’ve probably seen the “Made in Georgia” logo. That small logo tacked on the end credits can save productions hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars.
The secret sauce of Georgia’s extraordinary film industry: Georgians - There are so many reasons to be proud of our state. But I’d like to share with you something that Georgia has quietly done which should be not only a point of pride for all of us, but should also give us a sense of optimism about our collective future and the role our state…
2021: A Challenging Year for Cinema - There were triumphs on other fronts but not sufficient to pull the box office back to pre-pandemic levels. Although worldwide gross has sprung from $12.4 billion in 2020 to $21 billion in 2021, it’s still only 75% of the 2019 figure.
How far higher will Spider-Man: No Way Home go in the all-time highest-grossing charts? - As this story is being written, Peter Parker’s latest saga has already become the 10th biggest domestic release in history. Globally, Tom Holland’s latest outing as the web-slinging hero has become the 12th highest earning movie of all time. With its $1.37 billion earnings, Spider-Man handed Sony Pictures its biggest-grossing title.
Mill Creek Computer Science Club develops video games for kids with autism - A group of students from Mill Creek High School’s Computer Science Club have developed a series of educational video games created exclusively for young people with autism.
How subsidies helped Montreal become “the Hollywood of video games” - After seeing such success, it was only natural for the company to expand. The question for miHoYo was: where to go? That question was answered in November when the Chinese developer announced they were setting their sights on the west and establishing an office in Montreal, Canada.
Anna Chazelle To Write & Direct Horror Film Centered On Greek Legend Of Medusa For Fangoria Studios - For the uninitiated, Medusa was one of three Gorgon sisters with venomous snakes for hair, whose gaze could turn those around her to stone. The creature met her end at the hands of the demigod Perseus, who used her head as a weapon before giving it to the goddess Athena for placement on her shield.
“Love Hurts” releasing soon with Georgia connections - Six strangers are invited to a dinner party by a charming and enigmatic host, lured by the promise of substantial financial reward if they last the whole evening. However, all is not what it seems as the host reveals the dangerous and ultimately deadly secrets of his guests.
APRIO: The Good News About Build Back Better Act (BBBA) Not Moving Forward - The BBBA eliminates a permitted exclusion in the Net Investment Income tax provisions by subjecting all trade or business income of individuals with earnings over $400,000 (individual) or $500,000 (married couples) to the 3.8% net investment income tax—except to the extent already subject to self-employment tax.
