This article still refers to Atlanta as "Hollywood South" and "Yallywood" but doesn't mention anywhere the possibility of Atlanta losing its entire film industry in the near future, along with other corporations.

Until such a thing actually happens, the moniker still applies.

This is really something to get upset over. Somebody should sue somebody.

Let's not go overboard. The only way Atlanta would lose its entire film industry is if the state completely scrapped the film/TV incentives program and that's not happening. It's possible that the industry could take a hit depending on how things play out with this "heartbeat" bill and the article could have mentioned that in regard to the future of the luxury residential market in the city but there shouldn't be any wild speculations beyond that.

Getting riled up over a law that's going to have zero impact for years/decades (the time it's tied up in court, which will be considerable), if it Ever has any impact is.. well, short sighted is the kindest way I can put it but I'd tend more towards the caustic, vulgar words as a more appropriate label. It's a non-issue. You know the saying "any publicity is good publicity"? Yeah, well how much is Georgia and Atlanta getting for free? 30 years ago I would ave said it was brilliant, a decade ago I would have said it was cutting edge.. today, everyone's trying to out-shock each other and it's a bit passé.




Why can't people get worked up over the MASSIVE income in-equality? Or the rampant, and unchecked, corruption within the state government? Education? There are dozens of Actually important things that are ignored because they Aren't "Shocking Headline" type stuff. Glad I'm old, I get to die soon and leave this insanity.

And? Is this perhaps nothing more than your own wishful thinking? You are aware this is a concerted Nationwide effort by the Republican party playing Russian roulette to see which States over the top law makes it to the Supreme Court first, right?

This has a very slim chance of ever becoming law. In the meantime, the tax credits aren't going anywhere, and critical mass has already occurred. The infrastructure already in place is massive.

How many actors and celebrities said they would move out of the US after the 2016 election?

How many actually did?

Touche.

And don't tell me the two situations aren't comparable, because they are.
Limousine Liberals seldom make good on their threats. In the case of expatriation, they wouldn't want to give us the satisfaction.

Lol
I just brought this up in the California forum a few days ago. A person from South Carolina wants to move to Hollywood and write screenplays. I asked him if he considered Georgia as its number 1 in film production. His response was simply thAt it will all go away after the abortion bill goes through.

TBF, no one is pitching screenplays based out of Georgia, so that was a poor suggestion.

Creative and post-production is still centered in Hollywood, Georgia is where production stuff is happening.
