Students told future looks bright for working on films shot in Fayette


The Georgia Film Academy at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville on Feb. 7 and 8 was the setting that gave more than 75 high school students from across Georgia who have been accepted into 21st Century Leaders organization a close-up look at the creative industry.

They were told that more and more people involved in the film business here have swapped their out-of-state tags for Georgia tags and local homes.

Among the activities at the two-day 2019 Goizueta Youth Leadership Summit was a panel discussion that included Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Deputy Commissioner Lee Thomas, Georgia Film Academy Executive Director Jeff Stepakoff, and Pinewood Atlanta Studios President Frank Patterson. The panel was moderated by Kate McArdle, director of the film’s academy’s Workforce Development initiative.
