How was your Groundhog Day? Ours was quite embarrassing and we owe some folks an apology. Yesterday Film Georgia published an inaccurate “alert” to our Facebook page, informing our followers that one of our State Representatives had introduced legislation which might negatively impact Georgia’s undeniably effective tax incentive for the film industry.

Would you believe that the two companies had joined forces with the grand old network NBC and partnered with Georgia to produce their 4th television movie?

The staff of Film Georgia were excited to learn that the Farrelly brothers comedy “Hall Pass” has been announced for release on February 25, 2011 – mostly because we want to see the final edit of the scene we watched being filmed at Johnny’s Hideaway of actor Jason Sudeikis trying out pick-up lines on unsuspecting women.
