Moderate weather patterns, scenic locations, a major airport hub, and some of the most generous tax incentives offered to filmmakers by any state in the union all combine to make Georgia a highly desirable place to shoot film. Thus, it is home to a surprisingly thriving industry, with local and national filmmakers alike taking advantage of the opportunities offered here. Among the many films that have done filming in Georgia are Lawless, Trouble With the Curve, Zombieland, Due Date, and Forrest Gump, among others. Additionally, numerous popular television series have done shooting here, among them The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, and more recently NBC's action/drama series Revolution.

Featured on this page are a number of talented filmmakers and film professionals who have the distinction of being trained on real film productions as students/graduates of the Film Connection Film Institute in Georgia. These qualified professionals have all been mentored and instructed one-on-one by some of the top filmmakers in the industry--people with actual film credits similar to what you see listed above. We invite you to peruse the websites of these graduates to learn more about what services they can provide and what projects they've worked on.
