The Georgia Department of Economic Development reports that 320 feature films and television series were filmed in Georgia during the 2017 fiscal year, spending $2.7 billion on production and generating $9.5 billion for the state’s economy. These productions have catalyzed major infrastructure growth and investment opportunities in local communities.
Small businesses and support services companies, including post-production for large studios ScreenGem, LionStar, and Three Rings Studios, have greatly benefitted from the film industry boost, along with experimental reality animators like TRICK 3D.
The economic impact of the film industry can be felt across multiple sectors. In addition to camera, lighting and audio equipment, film companies use a wide range of support services during production including catering, construction, transportation, accounting and payroll and post-production.
From interactive game design, filmed entertainment, music, and broadcast radio and television, to animation and digital effects, and augmented/immersive entertainment, the Peach State is truly an industry powerhouse.
