Professional movie and TV studio opening in Columbus, also home to CSU students

0

It has been five years since film producers showed up in Columbus, closing the 13th Street bridge downtown for several days to shoot one dramatic car crash scene for the 2014 movie, “The Need for Speed.”

In hindsight, that white-knuckle experience appears to have foreshadowed the future for Columbus as it yearns to quickly grab a larger slice of the Georgia filmmaking pie, with the industry’s statewide economic impact now approaching $10 billion a year…

It starts with the opening Friday of what is now being called “Flat Rock Studio,” a state-of-the-art sound stage and production facility that has been set up at 7100 Jamesson Road by the W.C. Bradley Co. It also will become home to the film program offered by Columbus State University.
