Film and TV Production in Georgia

Monday, July 9th, 2012

Lights, Camera, Peaches! For those who didn’t know, the Georgia TV and film tax incentives program implemented in 2008 has brought droves of LA Oranges, New York Apples, and more to the Peach State – the HOT-lanta “Hollywood of the South.” The 2008 Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act grants a tax credit to qualified production and post-production expenditures. It is available not only to traditional motion picture projects such as feature films, television series, commercials and music videos, but also innovative new industries such as game development and animation.

Georgia is now one of the top 5 production destinations in the country. Some of the well known productions filmed in Georgia include The Vampire Diaries, Drop Dead Diva, Teen Wolf, The Walking Dead, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, Footloose (2011), Single Ladies, Auction Kings, Necessary Roughness, The Blind Side, Driving Miss Daisy, My Cousin Vinny, Zombieland, Sweet Home Alabama, Joyful Noise, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Wanderlust, What To Expect When You’re Expecting, American Reunion, The Three Stooges, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, Fast 5, and X-Men: First Class (just to name a few). Beautiful Savannah has also been busy with dozens of feature film and television projects for many years, including Forrest Gump, Glory, The Last Song, The Conspirator, The Legend of Bagger Vance, The Gift, Forces of Nature, and The General’s Daughter.

Since 2008, over 30 production companies and equipment suppliers have expanded or relocated to Georgia, including Screen Gems Studios Atlanta, Raleigh Studios at Riverwood, Atlanta Film Studios in Hiram, Paskal Lighting, and Panavision, the world leader in camera equipment. Atlanta is home to entertainment companies like Tyler Perry Studios, Turner Studios and Rainforest Films. Thanks to said tax incentives for Georgia-produced media, many rivals in New York, Louisiana, Vancouver, and even golden Hollywood find themselves joining the Atlantans in our tropical rainforest-like humidity. Welcome! 8)

As a Georgia peach myself, I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to be an “extra” (background artist) on several popular shows and movies, including The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, Drop Dead Diva, a few amazing movies that will be released this fall, and even a few local commercials. “How can I become an extra too?”  I’m glad you asked! Here is a great article with tons of useful information about Extras Casting. Also note that you can find many production company pages on Facebook (see the end of the article for links), and most will post casting calls nearly every day in search of specific local looks and talent. Be prepared for long days (sometimes 12-14 hours or more) and things to do while you wait in the “holding” area between shooting scenes.

Ready to explore the Peach State? We offer a wonderful variety of tours and activities that are sure to keep Georgia on your mind. Don’t forget your camera!

A Night of Mystery and Intrigue in Virginia Beach

When you think of Virginia Beach, chances are you invoke images of sand and surf, and a time to be wild and carefree.  What you might not think of is all of the wonderful shows and entertainment at your fingertips in this great area that will give you that same feeling of being truly alive.  Virginia Beach Tours offers you the chance for fun and excitement in a unique way…through the eyes of a skilled detective!

Virginia Beach’s superior performers help you to tap into the mystery and scheming that goes along with any high-quality murder mystery show.  At the Mystery Dinner Playhouse, anything goes.  Your dinner will be served to you by one of many characters actively involved in the crime-solving – and sometimes crime committing – and you will receive clues intended to get you closer to solving the mystery at hand.  Some will help you and others may throw you off course, but either way you are in for the time of your life, and don’t forget to keep good notes!  They will surely help you as you struggle to put the pieces of the puzzle together one at a time.

As dinner is served, you will have the opportunity to ask questions of the suspects, so be ready to inquire as much as you can between scenes.  The end of the evening brings prizes to those who best solve the mystery, so think carefully about your answers before they are submitted to the panel.

From now until the end of April, the playhouse will be showing “Who Killed the Boss?”  Your setting will be a company party, and the details of the crime are anybody’s guess.  So join Rob from Marketing, Bill from IT, intern Amanda, and the rest of the animated bunch from National Universal Technology Services for an evening of deception and chilling murders.  You will be so glad you came, saw, and solved that you will feel like your own version of Sherlock Holmes.

Check out one of the murder mystery shows at the Mystery Dinner Playhouse, and for a special way to spend the holiday, join in on the fun during a special performance on New Year’s Eve.  Details and booking information are available now at www.virginiabeachtours.net.

Photo Opportunities Abound in Brazil

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Brazil is the largest and most populated country in South America.  It is also the only Portuguese-speaking nation in the Americas.  There are, not surprisingly, many activities to suit your fancy, whether you are interested in taking a scenic bicycle tour, taking in a show, or taking it all in on a helicopter tour over Rio de Janeiro.  Whatever your mood, there is sure to be a tour or activity that is a perfect match.

If variety is what you are looking for, check out the Rio Special Tour, which includes the Botanical Gardens, Maracanã, and the MAC Museum in Rio de Janeiro.  The Botanical Gardens feature approximately 7,000 species of tropical plants.  Founded in 1808, it serves as both a popular attraction for tourists and a research institute.  You cannot miss the towering royal palms, which stand at about 100 feet tall.   Maracanã, one of the world’s largest stadiums, currently seats 95,000 people who come to watch one of the many soccer clubs in Rio de Janeiro compete.  It is currently slated to be the site of the 2014 World Cup.  A visit to the MAC Museum, which houses over 1,000 paintings and sculptures from local artists, will satisfy your artistic desires.  Designed by Oscar Niemeyer in 1991 and completed in 1996, this flying saucer shaped building draws in many an art connoisseur and the views of Rio are out of sight.

For those looking for a peaceful drive through a placid setting, the Sugar Loaf Cable Car Tour is a must.  Ride up above the trees and peer down at the gorgeous sights below.  Take a mental picture of the sparkling Guanabara Bay and catch a great view of Copacabana Beach.  You will also see the Rio-Niteró Bridge and Corcovado Hill along the way.

For a more active look at beautiful Rio de Janeiro, take a historic walking tour.   On this tour, you will visit the São Bento Monastery, a Benedictine complex where Gregorian chants are still recited on Sundays.  This incredible building was completed in 1641.  Also on the agenda is the Candelaria, Uruguaiana Street, and the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Brazil is a wonderful place to visit, whether you have a few days or a few weeks to do it.  For more ideas on how to make the most of your trip, visit www.toursinbrazil.com.  You will be so glad that you decided to incorporate these fun and educational activities into your vacation.

Louisville, a City of Many Faces

Friday, October 17th, 2008

There is plenty to do in Louisville, Kentucky with an activity to satisfy every need.  You can visit one of the city’s museums and galleries, stop by Louisville Waterfront Park, or check out a show at the Kentucky Center.  For a city with so much to see, what could be better than a tour to show it all to you just as you want it?

You can take the Ghost Bus Tour for a look at area ‘haunts,’ if you will.  The tour will take you on a ride through the settings of the bestselling books ‘Ghosts of Old Louisville’ and ‘Phantoms of Old Louisville,’ both penned by David Domine.  For a look at the area on foot, why not take the Ghost Walking Tour?  Offered on Friday evenings, this tour takes you into the alleys of Old Louisville which are illuminated by gas-operated lanterns.  This area encompasses a charming Victorian district with 19th century buildings and an eery, quiet feeling that surrounds you as you enter.

To get more of a background on the beautiful architecture, take the Old Louisville Historical District Walking Tour and pay homage to the talented designers who dreamt up this magnificent area.  Not only will you get to see their work up close, but you will get to hear stories and legends about the Preservation District from knowledgeable guides who will make this space come alive for you through their detailed accounts.

For a truly romantic and customizable experience, why not take a loved one on a Carriage Tour of the city? You can ride through Olmsted Park to the Historic Ohio River Waterfront or check out the St. James Court area.  Or, you can ride in style to dinner and a show.  No matter where you decide to go, this is absolutely the best way to appreciate the gorgeous scenery and enjoy some fresh air.

Last, but certainly not least, you can take a ride on the Star Riverboat for a relaxing afternoon or evening enjoying the scenery as well as a delicious brunch, lunch, or dinner.  Many believe that there is no better way to see the city than from the water, and they may be right.  This cruise is a terrific way to simply sit back and absorb the beauty of your surroundings.
