Georgia’s Film Industry Continues To Demonstrate Rapid Growth

2015 A Year of Growth

In 2004 the membership of Local 479 met in the North Room of historic Manuel’s Tavern to vote on partnering with local production organizations in a bid to challenge the State of Georgia to become a serious competitor in the television and motion picture industry. More than a decade later our State and our Local are reaping the benefits of that partnership and from the ensuing hard work put forth by state and local leaders.

Local 479 has much hard work yet to accomplish in helping to make Georgia the number one production destination in the country, but if 2015 is any measure we’re headed in the right direction.
