Cinema Park Studios

California is clearly #1 in the US in terms of movie and TV production.  New York is a distant, but clear #2.  Both have been production hubs for a very long time.

Over the past several years, Georgia has become a clear #3 in the United States in both motion picture and TV production.  A key to this growth has been the incentives that state and local entities have provided.

Many industry observers have indicated that there is still ample room for further growth and that in due time, Georgia will be a state where content originates, not merely serving as a production location.

On Sunday, December 3, 2017, at Cinema Park Studios Atlanta, Marty Shindler will lead a panel of notable Georgia production leaders on the topic of Setting up a Georgia Outpost: Risks, Rewards & Challenges.

The panel discussion will focus on the risks, rewards and challenges of that growth and what is vital to sustaining it and building on the base.

At this writing, the panel consists of:

  • John Councilman – Enterprise Architect  Akamai Technologies
  • Whit Norris, CAS – Vice President IATSE Local 479
  • John Sharaf – Director of Photography at John Sharaf Photography;
  • Elisabeth Stricker – Director of Media Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Creative Media Industries Institute at Georgia State University;
  • Marty Shindler – CEO, The Shindler Perspective, Inc. Moderator

As other panelists are confirmed, they will be added.
