The SEDA Board of Directors has approved a three year extension of the Savannah Entertainment Production Incentive

The Savannah Area Film Office is thrilled to announce that the SEDA Board of Directors has approved a three year extension of the Savannah Entertainment Production Incentive.  The Incentive has been instrumental in attracting productions to the Savannah region over the last three years.  Several revisions have been made to the guidelines which will make the incentive even more attractive to productions, and more beneficial to our local workforce.

Qualified shooting locations have expanded to include those within 60 miles of Savannah City Hall.  This change allows productions to film in several of our surrounding counties.  There is also a new Bonus Incentive which provides an extra $25,000 if 50% of the crew live within 60 miles of Savannah City Hall.  This incentive will encourage productions to hire our local crew.

Georgia Film Academy Information Sessions, This WEEK!

Maybe you or a loved one had been wondering “How can I get my foot in the door of the film industry?” Well, here’s your chance…

The Georgia Film Academy program at Savannah Tech provides the perfect pathway to a rewarding career in the film industry. The program was designed to be hands-on so our students can “learn by doing”.

Two information sessions will be held this week; one on Thursday from 6-7 pm and a second on Saturday from 10-11 am in room 7125 on the Savannah Tech main campus. If you are able to attend, John Grace can answer any questions you might have.

It is a two semester, 18-credit hour program. The first semester, students learn the terms, etiquette, departments and protocol of working on set or in the production office. The second semester, students are placed in internships to complete their training. While on set, students are mentored by working professionals and, in most cases, student interns are paid while they are learning.
