Let's Talk Small Business on Business RadioX Spotlights the Georgia Film and Entertainment Industry

Thomas and Sutton Discuss the Importance of Community Support in Atlanta's Growing Film Industry

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - October 29, 2014) - On October 7th, 2014, Let's Talk Small Business welcomed guests Lee Thomas, deputy commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development's Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office and LaRonda Sutton, director of City of Atlanta - Office of Entertainment. Host Stacey Key and guest co-host Cassius Butts spoke with these leaders about the extensive management that makes film production in Atlanta a community process.

The Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment office offers top-caliber crews, equipment and services at competitive prices that bring productions in on time and on budget. They also feature an extensive array of sound stages and facilities that enable maintenance of control and oversight for production activities occurring simultaneously. Georgia has always had a deep talent pool as well, including actors and casting companies for principals and extras.

"We are a marketing arm for the state of Georgia," said Thomas. "Our mission is to get films to choose our state for shooting. We help find locations and oversee the film tax credit. We assist with finding crews, equipment and warehouses to house all of this. We help production get underway."

The City of Atlanta Office of Entertainment was featured as well. While promoting and facilitating filming in the City of Atlanta, they are also dedicated to minimizing disruptions in neighborhoods, communities and businesses that may arise during filming. They solicit input from communities to ensure that that neighborhood conditions are maintained, resulting in a collaborative final product.
