The Film Industry Needs You

By Jacqueline Holness

Filmed in Atlanta, Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” is one of the top 10 highest grossing films of all time, contributing $83.9 million to Georgia’s economy, according to the Motion Picture Association of America. Midtown, Piedmont Park, Castleberry Hill, Mechanicsville, West End, Vine City, Decatur, Alpharetta, Marietta and Cartersville were the locales where the film was produced, resulting in a significant investment in Georgia vendors, including numerous small businesses.

While “Black Panther” production is over, numerous opportunities abound for in-state vendors and small businesses across the spectrum to partake in Georgia’s $9.5 billion entertainment industry.

And six months later, they will have it all taken out unless it’s a television series that’s going year round.”

Thomas recommends that business owners peruse the office’s Reel-Crew, a free, searchable, online directory of crew and support services in which Georgia business owners can advertise their services for local productions. Listings for personal trainers, accountants, auto mechanics and more can be found in the database …. Read More
