Alpharetta has been quick to capitalize on the potential of Georgia’s entertainment industry. Five years ago, Alpharetta requested and received the “Camera Ready” designation from the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment office making it easier to draw film and TV production to the area.
The Camera Ready program connects film and TV productions with skilled liaisons in counties across the state who can provide local expertise and support.
This makes it much easier for local location scouts to find potential filming sites because the program keeps hundreds of photos on file for quick assessment.
These photos include private homes and private property – all submitted by the owners – for consideration when scouting movie locations.
It’s a win-win for both the property owners and the city overall, say city officials.
“The local economic impact from film productions can be significant, including hiring of local residents, hotel stays and purchases of goods and services,” said Layne Mitchell, director of communications for the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau.
