The Gem Of The South
The Atlanta Olympics
The Growth Of The Entertainment Industry
Over the past 10-15 years, Atlanta has steadily become the "mecca" in the world of entertainment. This has been hugely supplemented by the introduction of the
Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act which is aimed at encouraging companies with a remit that comes under the "entertainment" banner, to "set up shop" in Georgia and take advantages of the real estate, enormous locations, and the growing talent pool.
The Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act provides incentives of up to 30% to qualified productions which include feature films, television, series, commercials, music videos, interactive entertainment and animated projects.
Last year, the total film and television spending in Georgia hit a record of $2.7 billion in the year that ended July 2017, which was up around one-third over the year before, and a ten-fold increase from 2008.
There is no wonder why many reputable companies have moved or are setting up additional operations into the city to take advantage of the prime structure that this
"Southern Gem" has to offer.
