ATLANTA, GA–(Marketwired – December 02, 2015) – On November 19, 2015, On The Money Radio hosted a special edition live from the Gwinnett Center as part of the Small Business Summit and interviewed Doug Nicely with Eagle Rock Studios. Host Joe Moss sat down with Nicely to discuss the booming film and television industry in Georgia and how the industry impacts small business.
Doug Nicely is the EVP of Studio Operations for Eagle Rock Studios, the largest stage complex under one roof in the United States. The facility includes two furnished production offices and four 30,000 sq. ft. stages, including 20,000 sq. ft. clear span, each with silent air conditioning and 4,000 amps. There are 50 loading docks surrounding the facility providing easy access to 100,000 sq. ft. of storage and 40,000 sq. ft. of supporting areas including shops, holding and catering areas.
Georgia ranks third in the U.S. for feature film production. The film and television industry in Georgia directly employs 23,500 people, with nearly 8,200 production-related employees. The state reports the film industry had a $5.1 billion economic impact during the 2014 fiscal year. As part of Eagle Rock Studio’s impact on the local business community, Nicely added, “The studio is projected to create jobs at every income level, from film talent to crew members, including grips, tradesmen/set builders, caterers, cleaning, wardrobe and makeup staff.”
Recently, Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta joined five other Georgia-based film studios to form the Georgia Studio and Infrastructure Alliance (GSIA), a new film and television studio and infrastructure association. The group hopes to serve as advocates for the education of crew members and the development of talent needed to keep clients returning to Georgia.
