Did you know that Atlanta is becoming a MAJOR movie mecca? According to a recent article in CNBC.com “Where it really helps is jobs,” added Thomas, a native Atlantan. “There are about 25,000 Georgians who are in the film and television production business and another 30,000 who are indirectly related.”
Some of the workers are moving here from slower markets, while the Georgia Film Academy, which just opened a 15,860-sq.-ft. sound stage at Pinewood Atlanta Studios for hands-on experience, and the university and community college systems, as well as SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design), will help fill the 3,000–5,000 film industry jobs forecast to open in the state by 2021.
Do you dream of working in the film industry or get excited thinking about all the stars in the Fayetteville area? Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios are around five miles from Fayetteville and offers a huge opportunity for those who would like to take up with the film industry or just rub elbows with the celebrities coming through Fayetteville.
So it is good to know that when you choose your new home at The Canoe Club, the area will continue to grow and produce opportunities for those who choose a career in film-making or with any other business that acts as a support for the film-making industry.
