from around the state about our programs!
Georgia's EMCs collectively have

COURTESY CAMP

"Y'allywood" is giving Hollywood a run for its money. In July,
Gov. Nathan Deal announced that
film and television production companies spent a record $2.7 billion in
Georgia during fiscal year 2017, and
Georgia is now the No. 1 filming
location in the world.
The overall economic impact of
Georgia's film industry is estimated
at $9.5 billion, which includes not
only money spent by casts and
crews but also revenue generated
by tourists who flock to production
locations around the state.
Nowhere is this trend more
evident than in Senoia, which has
reinvented itself as a mecca for film
and TV production-as well as tourism-while retaining its small-town
sensibilities. Turn to "How the dead
brought new life to Senoia" on page
18 to learn how movies put Senoia
on the map, but "The Walking
Dead" made the town come alive.
Yet for all the industry's growth,
what really makes a difference at
the local level is jobs. When a shortage of qualified local crew members
threatened to drive production elsewhere, Deal launched a jobs-training
initiative in 2015 that became the
Georgia Film Academy. See "Making
a blockbuster" on page 24 to find
out how this educational collaborative is preparing the next generation
of workers for Georgia's booming
film industry.
Speaking of booming, Leon
and Ralph Lovett of Wrightsville are
experts on things that go boom.
Their cannons, anti-tank weaponry
and other props have been lending
authenticity to film and TV productions like "Glory" and "In the Heat
of the Night" for 50 years. Turn to
"Shooting stars" on page 32 to see
how they-and their weaponry-
have made movie magic.

taken from them, are given a gift of
making new friends who are just like
them. They become more independent and more confident. Their lives
are transformed!

Thank you!
