I think Indianapolis is a potential sleeping giant if it plays its cards right.

I can see Pittsburgh booming within 20 years, the city's already reversed it's shrinking population. It grew by about 3,000 people from 2010 to 2012, not much, but still a milestone.

So far most everyone has missed the mark of what is a "sleeping giant". It's pretty safe to say cities with pro sports franchises aren't unnoticed, referred to as sleepy or waiting to be discovered. Besides previously mentioned Greensboro-Winston Salem other similar examples would be Omaha or Richmond in my opinion.

Right. If people are already flocking there, like Porltland or Seattle or Atlanta as has been suggested, they are by no means sleeping. They are wide awake. Sleeping cities are those that have not yet come under the popular or trendy radar.

Is Atlanta the new Hollywood of the South?

Neither New Orleans or Atlanta are going to displace Los Angeles, but you're woefully misinformed if you think that New Orleans is the only city with a rapidly rising profile in TV and film.
It's not about Atlanta vs LA. It is more about the rest of the country vs LA. Statistically filming in LA is decreasing while it is increasing everywhere else generally

Its because its cheap to film there. Vancouver was a hotspot but with every thing becoming more expensive production is down. Atlanta provides a nice street level urban backdrop to film in.

That's what Michigan said.

Vancouver BC is drubbing both places. If Louisiana was so good, what did Louisiana's Tyler Perry settle in Atlanta and build his production empire there?

It is still a hotspot. Many car commercials currently playing were filmed there. Canada has a regulatory advantage in film production vs. the U.S.
