Georgia Hopes For More Film Industry Stardom In 2018
Georgia had a blockbuster year for film and television in 2017, and film office chief Lee Thomas is predicting even more successes for the new year, according to this week’s Atlanta Business Chronicle.
“This has been the biggest year of film so far,” said Thomas, deputy commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office. “Hopefully, I’ll be able to say the same next year.”
The new year ushers in a new post-production tax credit that aims to keep film productions in town to make edits and color corrections and add music and sound. Crews regularly return to Los Angeles after shooting wraps.
