If the Louisiana tax credits end, it will get crazy in Atlanta. The number of film and TV projects will increase by a lot.

California tripled the total dollar amount they're willing to shell out for all movie productions in a fiscal year.

But their tax credit as a percentage of a production's overall expenditures is still lower than Georgia's. 25 % compared to 30 %. And when you consider how much cheaper nearly everything is in Georgia, from feeding crews to renting locations, hotel accommodations, transportation, and production vehicles, etc, this state will remain attractive for filming.

I hope you are right... Atlanta becoming a center of TV and film would be even better than CNN in my opinion. I firmly believe that The Walking Dead and it's enormous popularity here and abroad with the younger demographics is helping Atlanta's "hip" factor more than Matlock ever could.

Lower cost does factor into it for sure. However, it wasn't enough to keep N.C.'s industry. When the incentives went away, so did a LOT of the state's film industry. And they were quick about it too. In some cases, they walked off and left equipment behind and went to Georgia...

In addition to North Carolina, Montana and Florida are also reconsidering their film tax incentive packages...
