Georgia needs more film workers

Clayton State already addressing the need

Georgia’s film industry is growing at such speed that state officials are concerned about having enough trained workers to satisfy the need and hoping to create production training programs similar to the one already available at Clayton State University, which has a campus in Fayette County.

With the expansion of Pinewood Studios in Fayette, proposed studio complexes in Union City, Norcross, Savannah and elsewhere in Georgia, the state is poised to one day eclipse New York as the second busiest state in the nation for film production.

Georgia is third on the list now, just behind New York and California, and the amount generated by film production in Georgia grew from $3.4 billion in 2013 to more than $5 billion last year.
