Savannah is riding a Hollywood money-making wave. This year the money spent by entertainment crews in the Hostess City has surfed past what was earned all of 2017.
It’s no accident, the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA) saw the opportunity a few years ago and capitalized on it. Now it’s paying off big, with more than a 300% boost over the past three years.
Hugh “Trip” Tollison, the Executive Director at Savannah Economic Development Authority says “When we saw that kind of massive increase after getting the film office under us, in our marketing and sales, its just get going and going and going and this year we’ve already topped last years numbers.”
