Georgia Film Day

With Georgia Film Day coming up on March 15, the Georgia Production Partnership encourages all industry professionals and supporters to show appreciation for the production tax incentive.

 

They offer two ways to do so:

 

1 - Speak Out

Before Wednesday, write a letter to the editor of all your local papers explaining the importance of a strong production environment to your career and livelihood. It should be very short (less than 200 words usually) and personal. Impressive facts and figures are good but the story of individuals are what makes a real impact!

 

Here are a couple of samples:

Re: Georgia Film Day

 

Dear editors:

 

As a (LIST JOB IN INDUSTRY), thank you for taking note of the growing film and TV industry in Georgia, and the ongoing support of all who work tirelessly to make it all happen - from our elected officials, to Georgia Production Partnership, to those who continue bring their television and movie projects to our state.

 

The fact is, the strength of the film and TV industry in Georgia is a direct reflection of the tax incentive in place. When money is spent on this industry in Georgia, jobs are created. And because of those jobs, I am able to do what I love and support my hometown economy. Georgians have worked hard to build the film and television industry here and it is paying us back with employment, investment and tourism.

 

I appreciate your support of this dynamic industry and all of the Georgians it employs as we celebrate Georgia Film Day.

 

Sincerely,

Dear editors:

 

In the last few years, the film and TV industry has flourished in Georgia, employing our residents while growing infrastructure and bolstering small businesses. In addition, this growth has brought the relocation and/or expansion of more than 130 businesses in our state. Along with those who come here to work, thousands of tourists come to see where their favorite film or TV show was shot and stay, eat and shop locally.

 

As a (LIST JOB IN INDUSTRY), I know all of this activity is a direct result of the highly effective tax incentive we offer the TV and film industry. It's positively impacting us all. Did you know Georgia is now tied for No. 3 in worldwide film production? In total, more than 700 film and television projects have been shot, and the impact it has on our state rests at more than $7 billion annually. 

 

The fact is, when money is spent on this industry in Georgia, jobs are created, businesses thrive, and our state prospers. I appreciate the work of Governor Deal and the legislators who support us.

 

Sincerely,
