Did you ever think you would see actors walking the streets of Hollywood wearing Fitzgerald Purple Hurricane hats and hoodies?
Well, that is exactly what you can catch a glimpse of in Hollywood – and in Fitzgerald thanks to the efforts of some local citizens. Over $1.5 million worth of movies and TV shows have been filmed in Fitzgerald over the past year, and it’s just getting started. Rise Georgia interviewed Alexander Kane, an actor/ producer from Fitzgerald, and he stated much more is on the horizon for the small town.
Alexander Kane grew up in Fitzgerald, and always had a dream of becoming an actor. He has been working with many film industry producers and actors to attract attention and to bring business to Fitzgerald, Ga. We asked him what is his vision for the film industry in Fitzgerald and he stated In towns like Fitzgerald, it is hard to attract large corporations that can bring manufacturing and logistics jobs when there isn’t anything going on there in the first place. Imagine, seeing producers and actors in your small town, and they are not there just visiting.
They are there scouting out locations for an upcoming, Hollywood blockbuster film, or possibly multiple films. They are eating at local restaurants, buying supplies from local stores, and staying at local hotels. See more here.
