It was announced last week that Georgia’s Film and TV Industry is one of the fastest-growing entertainment production centers in the world. The 248 film and television productions shot during fiscal year 2015 (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015) represent an economic impact of more than $6 billion.
+ Music is a part of every film, TV show, webisode and video game.
+ There is a 30% tax incentive already in place which includes recording music for qualified projects shot in Georgia.
+ Marketing and promoting Georgia’s home-grown talent, our infrastructure and the incentive will ultimately lead to more work, more jobs and more revenue.
+ There are over 45 post-secondary education programs in the State preparing students for the music industry.
= There is a huge opportunity in front of us to grow the music industry in Georgia; for you and for your business and our future.
Like our friends at GPP did for film, Georgia’s music community must coalesce and rally behind a single voice to succeed. Together we can turn this timely opportunity into a reality. Let’s Make It Happen.
It Is Time.
