Artist Spotlight, an educational media company strives to help local residents and children who have interest in film, learn more about the industry.
Throughout the years, Atlanta has affectionately become the ‘Hollywood of the South,’ and with good reason. Roughly 10 years ago, the Peach State began to offer second-to-none tax incentives. The move enticed major film and TV programs to bring their productions to Georgia. With productions popping up all throughout Metro Atlanta, many native residents got the bug to learn more about.
That’s where the Atlanta based company, Artist Spotlight comes into play. Founded by Morris “Mo’Betta” Lucas, it was designed to equip up-and-coming creatives with the necessary skills in all facets of the industry.
“We’ll get them excited in an industry that is different from music. It’s different from athletics. And it’s something that they can do even without a college degree,” says College Park Councilmember Ambrose Clay who worked very closely with the Artist Spotlight to get the camp established in the Tri-Cities area.
