Georgia (and Fayette County in particular) is becoming more and more desirable for film companies to bring their enterprises here for many reasons. Fayette County is a combination of rural and city living and is in close proximity to Atlanta where there is one of the world’s largest airports.
Fayette County has both a rural/country atmosphere and yet just a few miles down the road, there are advantages of urban living and amenities.
“Pinewood Atlanta is a full service film and entertainment studio complex comprised of five sound stages on 288 acres in Fayetteville, Georgia USA, just south of Atlanta. The project will become a world-class studio for the production of film, television, music and video games.”
On January 17, 2014, there will be a special gathering at the site of the new studio located at 400 Veterans Parkway in Fayetteville, Georgia.
