Film in Georgia

"There is a huge amount of infrastructure in Georgia. It's a travel center, so it's easy to get in and out of, the crew is highly experienced and professional, and the attitude level is just wonderful. Not to mention you have the canvas of Georgia to use and paint magnificent pictures with."

Timothy Bourne, producer of "The Blind Side", "Footloose", "Love, Simon" and "Drumline"
