Bigger is better for many of the clients at EUE/Screen Gems Studios in Atlanta, Atlanta’s first major film and tv studio complex.
“This is Stage 10. It’s 30,000 square feet,” said Executive Vice President Kris Bagwell. “We’ve seen sets that have gone almost to the top, almost 40 feet.”
One of the huge spaceship sets for the movie “Passengers” with Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence was built inside Stage 10.
“This is not your average warehouse,” Bagwell added. “The walls are thick. The power is under the floor. There’s a lot going on you don’t see.”
Bagwell has been with EUE/Screen Gems since 2010, when the company signed a 50-year lease with the city of Atlanta for the old Lakewood Fairgrounds, which later became the popular Lakewood Antiques Market.
