Filming in Georgia

Georgia has become one of the main production hubs in the US, partly through its base 20% filming incentive that expands to 30% with the inclusion of the state’s peach logo in a production’s credits, and its outstanding studio infrastructure.

Pinewood Atlanta Studios is becoming a long-term favourite for Marvel, as the host of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Georgia’s other studio facilities include EUE/Screen Gems Studios Atlanta and Atlanta Film Studios.

The new Moon River Studios, claiming to be the the largest studio project in the US, will also help elevate the state's production profile. Hit TV zombie drama The Walking Dead has been based in Georgia for the past six years.

Netflix's sleeper-hit, Stranger Things doubled areas in Georgia for Indiana, and was recently transformed into a prohibition-era United States in Ben Affleck's Live by Night.

The state’s competitive film incentive programme continues to encourage filmmakers to choose Georgia as the place to film, hiring local workers and prompting economic growth.”

Georgia gets about 60 inches of rainfall every year, with March being the wettest month and thunderstorms affecting the state about 60 days of the year. Mild snowfall is sometimes experienced in the northern part of the state where the ground is higher and more mountainous. The south-west areas are susceptible to tropical storms owing to their coastal regions.
