The Effect of Film Tourism on Georgia

by on Jan.12, 2010, under Filming

Today we’re featuring a YouTube video by Craig Miller, co-President of the Georgia Production Partnership, owner of Craig Miller Productions, and Executive Producer of C Pictures. Craig’s video “Film Tourism in GA” neatly sums up what professionals in the motion picture industry have long known: the unsung “ripple” effect of the movie business is that it can (and does) help drive tourism to filming locations. In the tourism business this is known as “Film Tourism”; a type of tourism directly driven by a desire to visit real life filming locations seen in movies and television shows. For 70 years the film “Gone With The Wind” brought visitors from around the world to try and catch a glimpse of Tara. Craig’s video “Film Tourism in GA” discusses the economic impact of other Georga-lensed films, like “Deliverance”, “Fried Green Tomatoes”, and “Forrest Gump”.

We’re obviously big cheerleaders of the motion picture industry and honestly hope that every citizen of the state of Georgia will support the work of our state’s motion picture professionals! Be sure to view Craig’s other videos and give them 5 stars!
